This program will provide all of the answers you have come to expect from The Word on Medicine – we have one of our most exciting programs exploring medical discoveries as they are taken from the laboratory bench to the patient bedside. The use of cell-free DNA to detect chromosomal abnormalities and organ rejection (developed right here in Milwaukee by the Mitchell Laboratory), and emerging technology to bring personalized medicine to the care of patients with pancreatic cancer. We have an amazing panel of experts - from the Department of Surgery and the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Drs. Aoy and Michael Mitchell; from the Division of Surgical Oncology, Dr. Susan Tsai; Dr. Paula North from the Department of Pathology; and from the Department of Surgery at the University of North Carolina, Dr. Jen Jen Yeh. We also highlight the enormous impact that women have had in advancing science and medicine - please visit our web site at to learn more about the amazing women leading the way in science and medicine in the Department of Surgery.

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
