Episode 3: Meet the Team – Eduardo Gutiérrez-Rodríguez

Mara, Amber, and Bella continue their journey learning about microbe resistance with Eduardo Gutiérrez-Rodríguez this week on “Tales of the Resistance.” Eduardo brings his expertise in AMR’s effects on produce production to the discussion today from his research and outreach with Colorado State University. In this episode we found ourselves asking if there’s anything that can be done to address AMR and facing the reality of sometimes knowing there’s a problem but not always having a solution at hand. Thank you Eduardo for joining us in today’s episode. We’ll continue to learn and grow during this series and we hope we’ll find the future of AMR will be clearer, if not always brighter.

Welcome to “Tales of the Resistance” a podcast centered around learning about the IAMResponisble team and antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Hosted by 3 iAMResponsible staffers Mara Zelt, Amber Patterson, and Bella Breinig – they looove those microbes.

This week on “Tales of the Resistance” we have a manure connoisseur, microbe master, and our boss Amy Schmidt! A faculty member at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and CEO of the Schmidt lab, Amy is one of the founders of the iAMResponisble team. In this episode, we chat about the concept of one-health, the importance of awareness, and how our culture is leading us blind in the fight against resistance. Huge thank you to Amy for joining us!

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.
