OVERxDOSE: A Pharmacy Podcast

Jul 30 2020 54 mins 4

Exploring anything and everything Pharmacy and drugs from the perspective of a slightly sarcastic, extremely professional, and, hopefully, witty third year Pharmacy student (P3). I'll be diving into harder to discuss topics that will hopefully bring insight into the unknown world of Pharmacy. I take an interdisciplinary approach to all healthcare topics and professions through candid interviews with students, practicing professionals, and discussing new innovations in healthcare I get exposed to as I continue to earn my Pharm. D.. All while hopefully making you laugh a little and learn something along the way. My goal for this podcast is to help promote the profession as a whole, and help all people and healthcare professionals stay #AWARxE🥼of the many important roles Pharmacists play in healthcare. Furthermore, I hope to make this podcast something future pharmacists, patients, and friends of mine will enjoy and benefit from. Maybe even inspire others wanting to move into a career in the medical field to consider pursuing an exciting, and totally not boring, career in Pharmacy. If that sounds interesting to you, then I'd appreciate you Prescribing (haha that's a pharmacy pun for Subscribing), leaving a (5 star) rating and review on Apple Podcasts (link provided), and sharing it with friends.

Ep. 5 : Just Go For It w/ Dr. Mike Corvino (@CorConsultRx)
Jan 24 2020 56 mins  
This marks the start of my next mini-series, and the end of my Mental Health Mini-series. (This will probably be my last mini-series for awhile since individual episodes are less time-consuming, and being a second year pharmacy student doesn't give me a whole lot of time to create structure, or eat sometimes. I'm not Wondery, and this isn't Dr. Death... it's better.) Anyways, I'll be covering everything social media, specifically focusing on Pharmacists and Pharmacy students who are using it to share what they are passionate about and connect with others in and outside of their field. In this series, I try dive deeper into origin stories behind some of the larger Pharmacy accounts, and some of the newer ones I've been lucky enough to connect with after starting this podcast. I want to learn why they built their "brands", how it's impacted them personally and professionally, what worked, what didn't, and how social media is changing the profession of Pharmacy as a whole. I hope this series will encourage others who might be interested in starting their own pages to take the first step, be successful, and avoid the pitfalls and speed bumps I, and those I interview, have personally run into. In this episode, I have the pleasure sit down with Dr. Mike Corvino, founder of @CorConsultRx. Mike was one of my inspirations for starting OVERxDOSE and one thing I wanted to expand on that he mentions on his podcast is how there is no better time than now, while in school, to start an account leverage social media in a way that brings value to others. You can tell how nervous I am in the beginning of the episode, but it was really awesome to dive deeper into this topic. We expand on some of the topics he discussed w/ Dr. Adam Martin on The Fit Pharmacist Healthcare Podcast back in 2018. It's a great lesson, and it focuses more on how you can find your angle, find what value you can bring, and use it on social media. Listen at the link below: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-fit-pharmacist-healthcare-podcast/id1397266139?i=1000420923806 This episode expands on that, highlights the ups and downs that come with presenting yourself on social media, and focuses more on the personal side of all of it. As always, #stayhealthy and don't #OVERxDOSE. And stay tuned for more episodes in a shorter time frame than before. I'm actually getting better at this interviewing and scheduling them thing.

Dec 02 2019 57 mins  
In this episode I speak with Areeb, at the time, a second year Pharmacy student. We cover the changes he's helped implement at his school that have lead to tangible change for those dealing with Mental Health. We cover what my school has done, and we try to lay out step-wise how any student can go about working with their school to address Mental Health.

Ep. 1: Mental Health w/ Brad
Dec 16 2018 57 mins  
Hey there, let's talk about our mental health. ***PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE LISTENING*** (also skip to 4:30 to avoid hearing me struggle with audio and attempt to sing. This is my very first episode and I will try to be a bit more professional in the future. This means less profanity in the future. To know why I'm making this change, listen on to my Professionalism episode.) I hope you're ready to see what a first year pharmacy student has been trying to do while attempting to earn his Doctorate of Pharmacy degree. He's also realizing he wants to try new things and do something big. He's also referring to himself in the third person. That person is me. Again, I'm David, and this is my Podcast. It’s called Overxdose. It covers everything drugs. You should prescribe (that's a pharmacy pun for subscribe) for your daily dose of dark humor, personal stories, tips for success, and how to #stayhealth and don’t #overxdose.. Here's the GOAL OF MY PODCAST: I'm trying to track and document my journey as I figure out what in the hell I want to do with my life in the Pharmacy world. There are countless opportunities to pursue and is largely unnoticed by the general population. Pharmacy doesn't get a lot of exposure, and a lot of people don't realize how it works. I'm taking an unbiased approach, and try to get my fax straight on everything. I'm exploring how it affects the public, what the new trends are, insider tips for success, new legislation in the works, the requirements to join, and the education required to prepare and pass exams. I'm about giving you the tools you need to succeed and maybe, fingers crossed, laugh a little and enjoy what I experience along the way. At the end of the day, I want this to help patients. What better way than to enjoy a laugh in the process and stream it on a free platform for anyone to enjoy. This is a mini-series I'm considering and I MUST WARN YOU NOW! THIS WILL BE ALARMING TO HEAR FOR SOME. THIS MOST LIKELY WILL MAKE YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE. And that's okay, it's the whole reason I'm doing this podcast. It's something that needs to be heard. But, if you're not ready to take that step yet, that's okay too. It took me awhile to come out and do this project for the very fact it's stigmatized. That's ultimately why I started it. You can't destroy a stigma without standing up (after maybe a skate trick, or a financial set-back, or a personal hardship, or you know, something not something that personally affected me that I think anyone can relate to)looking it in the eye, and diving straight into it. Thank you for reading. Please leave a review on Apple Podcast, and rate it five stars if you thought it was good. If it's something you think I should keep doing. Or do you think its it too soon to be releasing things like this so candidly and honestly? What are we missing? Are you a healthcare specialist who works in any way related to medicine? New trends in Pharmacy? Unique specialties? Current Students? General public with a personal story you want to share? Please reach out by e-mail for potentially setting up an interview: E-mail: [email protected] Thank you again for a review. It'll help me make this podcast something everybody, from every background, can benefit from. If you want to find and reach Bradley Long directly. He prefers being contacted through his instagram.
