In this episode, John and Dean recover from AudiologyNOW! by making fun of a silly headline and talking about whether listservs have worn out their welcome in audiology.
We finish AudiologyNOW! 2014 with a fantastic episode! Guests included Deb Abel, AuD – Academy Senior Specialist of Practice Management, Torryn Brazell, MS, CAE – Managing Director of the American Board of Audiology, and Mindy Brudereck, AuD – Chair of ABA. We also hosted our third annual So You Think You’re Smarter Than a First Year – for which the competition between ABA and the Academy Foundation was so strong that we had to hold an extra round!
We are joined by Kathleen Devlin Culver of the American Academy of Audiology Foundation and Dr. David Brown of Pacific University as we run down the second day of AudiologyNOW!
Students, students, and more students were the feature for this episode. We had a great time talking with our good friend and SAA President Andrea Green, SAA President-Elect Laura Chenier, and Reaghan Albert, SAA Fundraising Committee Chair and Treasurer.
We were later joined by Lindsey Jorgensen, AuD, PhD, who is speaking this week about what kind of audiologist student may want to be (Gyl Kasewurm was delayed due to a flight cancellation).
Our opening AudiologyNOW! 2014 episode wrapped up with an inspirational talk by Ohio State University AuD student Katherine Kerns, who is planning a humanitarian trip to Malawi. Listen in as we help Katherine make a surprise connection!
Frank Musiek joins us to talk about the [C]APD conference at AudiologyNOW! later this month and dispel some myths about auditory processing disorders. John & Dean give a preview of AudiologyTalk at AudiologyNOW!, including a suprise reveal about our popular game show, So You Think You’re Smarter Than a First Year.
John and Dean both ended up with debilitating illnesses during recording of this episode, but we somehow managed to assemble our annual AudiologyNOW! preview – complete with two guests! This extra-long episode will tell you everything you need to know about the big audiology show.
What happens when a bunch of hearing aid dealers get a wildly expanded scope of practice submitted to a bill in their state at the 11th hour? They found out in North Carolina recently. We talk about this, the recent audiology news, and have a guest host do birthday congratulations.
As always, we touch on news and celebrate birthdays – this month for a whole bunch of our favorite AudiologyTalk friends and past guests. John and Dean try to find a way for audiology to unify. Do they succeed? You be the judge.
John and Dean talk with Ryan McCreery, Director of Audiology at Boys Town National Research Hospital, about frequency lowering. This interview was so great that we refused to cut it down to shorten the episode!
John & Dean discuss and interpret ASHA’s description of the value of certification. Is it worth it? YOU decide!
Why is it so critical to begin developing auditory skills early? Many have though it was due to cortical development of the auditory system, but new research shows that nerve cells in the auditory cortex will not develop unless stimulated. John and Dean discuss all the latest news, congratulate a few colleagues for getting older, and talk in-depth about this latest and very profound research.
John and Dean bring you the latest in audiology-related news, as usual, and discuss what the world would be like if we regress to a retail model for hearing instrument.
We talk about failed ideas in audiology, discuss recent audiology-related news and debate new legislation introduced by ASHA.
We catch up on news since AudiologyNOW! and John sits down with Jacob Landis, who is riding his bicycle across the country and to all 30 major league ballparks to raise money and awareness for hearing loss.
Our favorite (and only) guest host Mindy Brudereck joins us again for our final episode at AudiologyNOW! this year. Highlights are our second annual running of “So You Think You’re Smarter Than a First Year” and special guest Damon Boyce, AuD, Staff Audiology at Westone.
