This week I’m highlighting one of my favorite things and that is OT podcasts. And not just any OT podcasts, but podcasts that are run by some fabulous OT & OTA students.

Patches of OT

This podcast is hosted by Allie Watkins who as an OTD student currently out completing her level 2 fieldworks. While only a few episodes exist, Allie has already amazed me with her honesty and ability to talk about necessary and important topics within our professioin.

How To OT

How To OT is hosted by Matt Brandenburg, also a student pursuing his OTD. Matt has countless episodes covering lots of different topic areas. Most recently, he has been focusing on sharing the research presentations from other students who were unable to present at conferences due to the pandemic.

The Occupation Station

This podcast is hosted by two OT students, Amy and Ana as they share their experiences being students, as well as discuss range of occupations from caring, to being globally minded, to motivational interviewing.

My OT Journey

My OT Journey podcast is student run podcast for aspiring OT and OTAs. I was actually recently interviewed on their show, so be on the lookout for that episode to drop.

The Modern OTs

This podcast aims to define what OT is, highlight student’s role in advocacy, and gather advice from practitioners in the field. It is hosted bt Sarieni and Laura.

Fall is Here!

With football on the tv and pumpkin spiced lates filling up our cups, it is safe to say that fall is officially here.

After my chat with Amirra, I had so many thoughts and takeaways. Even though our episode focused solely on early intervention, so much of what we discussed can be applied to a multitude of other practice areas. To hear my thoughts, check out my latest podcast episode.

I was also interviewed as a guest on The Private Practice Survival Guide podcast and I am so excited for that episode to drop (sometime in December). We chatted all about being purpose-driven and how that mindset has propelled me throughout my entrepreneurship journey.
