#KeyLIMEpodcast 151: Ripped from the Headlines, Episode 1

Welcome to the first KeyLIME Podcast of 2018! If you haven’t yet heard, we are moving to weekly releases!

The hosts introduce a new series called “Ripped from the Headlines”, inspired by Riffed from the headlines on CBC Radio. In this series, one of the hosts selects three quotes – two real, one fake – and asks their co-hosts to spot the fake!

In this first iteration, Jason has selected the following three quotes …did his co-host guess right? Did you?  Check out the podcast here to find out!

Successful coping…encouraged the maintenance of resilience-promoting abilities.

  3. “…many educators tasking with implementing CBME understandably feel they have limited power to protest…For too long CBME has been allowed to propagate based the regulatory and administrative power of a small group…CBME…is faith-based medical education, replete with its own unopposable truths and its authorized high priests…”
