Episode 1: Let’s talk about us… and microbes too.

Welcome to “Tales of the Resistance” a podcast all about resistance, not political but microbiological, in other words: antimicrobial resistance (AMR). AMR  is a serious and growing public health threat that impacts us all. We all have a story to tell about how it can and does impact our lives. So in this series members of the iAMResponsible team, a multidisciplinary group of researchers and educators from across the country working on AMR in the food chain, are going to be diving in to learn about the problem and what we can all do about it.

Hosting this series are three members of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Schmidt Lab, and staff working on the iAMResponsible team, Mara Zelt, Amber Patterson, and Bella Breinig. 

Kicking off our first episode in “Tales of this Resistance” we have joining us… no one! Mara, Amber, and Bella discuss what iAMResponsible means to them and what they hope to gain from their podcasting debut. While exploring their understanding of the importance of AMR and how it has touched them in their personal and professional lives. Three girls, one lab, and billions of microbes– oy vye.
