Tufts Freethought Society recently released a podcast series led by the group’s executive board members. Their first podcast, led by Walker Bristol, A14, and Lauren Rose, A13, covers everything from The Ignoble Prizes to the male hormonal cycle (yes it exists–it’s just a yearly cycle). They seek to discuss contemporary topics based on science, logic, and reason free from superstition, dogma, or belief in the supernatural:

Were you just thinking, “Boy, I wish somebody would develop a podcast that discusses issues related to atheism, religion, skepticism, science, politics, sex, and freethought, perhaps specifically catered to students and Boston area affairs?” If so, then get excited! Tufts Freethought Society has a podcast!

If this sounds like you, check out their blog for their first two podcasts or find them on Youtube for their videos from The Humanist Forum, reflections, and more.  For more on Tufts Freethought Society check them out on Twitter and Facebook.

The Sharewood Project

Medical students and doctors of the Tufts University School of Medicine are providing free health care to under-served communities in the Boston area through The Sharewood Project. Sharewood, located in the First Church in Malden, operates Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 9 PM and provides clinical care, case management, laboratory work, and other health care services for free and without a scheduled appointment.

Recently, the AsianBoston‘s radio station conducted an interview with representatives from the Tufts Medical School about the Project.

Champs Not Chumps

Thomas Dodson, a part-time reference librarian at Tisch Library, is co-host of Champs Not Chumps, an audio podcast featuring interviews with people who are pursuing creative, social or intellectual projects. Recent episodes have covered diverse topics such as education reform, the origins of language, alternative comics, Buddhist psychology, and more.

A recent post features Nate Hill, a performance artist who dresses up as a panda and asks Brooklyn residents to punch him in the stomach as a way of helping passersby release their frustration and anger:

Nate describes the work, called Punch Me Panda, this way: “If you find yourself frustrated, angry, or just had a bad day, I will come to your house, and you can punch me. I wear a chest protector, and you wear boxing gloves, so no one gets hurt. It costs one cent per punch.”
