In an episode packed with audiology-related news, John and Dean deviate just long enough to spread a message of giving for the holiday season. Join us, won’t you?
In this episode, the saga of ADA becoming a buying group continues and we discuss the uninformed recommendations of a Presidential Advisory Council’s report and the FDA’s complete lack of action in our industry.
We must be getting good at this, because this episode didn’t take nearly as much time. WE discuss latest research in audiology and debate the merits of animal research since some guy in Australia decided to question them.
John and Dean interview Erin Miller, AuD, President of the American Academy of Audiology, and discuss listener feedback to our recent Facebook poll.
Very special guest Sam Atcherson, PhD, of University of Arkansas – Little Rock joins us for our long-awaited discussion of auditory processing disorder. We’re not sure that Mindy, Dean, or John understood any of it, but they did their best and that’s what counts.
Listen to Episode 68:
John & Dean fly the AudiologyTalk ship as a duo this month and cover all the news that has amassed since breaking for AudiologyNOW! – as well as discussing how to reach our professional goals in audiology. Our answer? Be bold!
We record our second and last (although we didn’t know that at the time) episode from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio. Torryn Brazell, Managing Director of the American Board of Audiology, joined us to discuss exciting new projects by ABA and Bob DiSogra sat down to talk about the work he has been doing in OTC tinnitus products and debunking the many myths that surround them.
John, Dean, & Mindy kick of AudiologyNOW! in San Antonio Texas Style! We have big interviews with SAA leadership and Tanya Tolpegin, MBA, CAE – Executive Director of the American Academy of Audiology.
This special episode is dedicated to Marion Downs, one of our favorite past guests and a beloved colleague who passed away in late 2014. We will miss her very much, but it was a wonderful experience discussing some of the key moments from her illustrious career with those close to her. We hope you enjoy listening to this tribute episode as much as we enjoyed making it.
We finally get back to podcasting, although one person short. John and Dean grab ahold of the reins and provide our annual AudiologyNOW! preview episode with special guest Helena Solodar, 2015 Program Chair.
We are exploding with news during this episode and discuss everything from advocacy and association politics to identification of hearing and hearing-impaired comic book characters. As if that wasn’t enough, John, Dean, and Mindy struggle with a difficult question about drawing lines when insurance companies will not cover audiological procedures.
In this episode, we discuss the latest breakthroughs in research and other news. We also spread the word about a call for the first ever practice analysis of practicing audiologists and new grants available for those interested in tinnitus research. To wrap up the program, Mindy leads a discussion about manufacturers failing to take responsibility for their own problems and what we can do about it.
We discuss the recent addition to the audiology legislation stew, a new product to help people with hearing loss understand better than those with normal hearing, and lots of new research. We wrap up with a discussion about how audiology and hearing loss can get the same kind of attention as ALS has gotten with their challenge.
We can’t wait to discuss the latest sneak video – this time recorded in a hospital audiology clinic when a mother is detained for taking a photo of her son. We also explore whether there is a place for PSAPs in audiology.
In this episode, John and Dean welcome a new permanent host of AudiologyTalk and, as usual for hosts of a talk show, can’t find the right words. We all proceed to discuss whether audiologists have the right to dissuade patients from having biases founded in vanity.
