By Cynthia Rider posted 04-22-2021 14:12


As part of the Society’s ongoing strategic initiatives aimed at diversifying SOT communications to its members and increasing the public’s exposure to toxicology (see what I did there?), SOT Council is pleased to announce the launch of the Adverse Reactions podcast with the release today of the introductory episode, “Capturing Adverse Reactions.”

Hosted by SOT members Anne Chappelle (former SOT Council member and aspiring extrovert) and David Faulkner (voted most likely to start his own podcast), Adverse Reactions is an interview podcast bringing you the people and stories behind the science of how biological, physical, and chemical agents may cause adverse reactions to public, animal, and environmental health.

It's not on Apple Podcasts yet - I assume we'll be able to find it there?
