we can answer that — a podcast series

the podcast where we sit down with ucalgary professors, researchers and experts to get the answers to five questions submitted by you.

episode 11: medic mushrooms

we speak with dr. peter facchini, a professor of biochemistry and chief scientific officer of magicmed, about studying the medicinal properties of psilocybin mushrooms and other drugs, and how synthesizing and improving them could lead to better mental health treatments. 

episode 12: are you an ally? 

we speak with dr. adam murry, an assistant professor of indigenous psychology, about his research project into quantifying the traits of allyship and how better understanding allyship can help both the groups who need it most and the people who want to be allies.    

episode 13: do no harm

we talk with dr. abdullah saleh, a paediatric surgeon and director of the university of alberta's office of global surgery, about how medical practitioners traveling to lower-income countries can end up doing more harm than good, even though they're trying to help.
