We are proud to announce a brand new way to help you master medical school and prepare for the boards: The Rx Bricks Podcast! And besides being highly entertaining, they’re free!
Led by Dr. Arjun Iyer (of Express Videos fame), each podcast episode is built around one of our nearly 800 bricks, which are designed to explain need-to-know topics in medical education.
Each week, we’ll bring you a new episode, which you can listen to while you’re washing dishes, walking the dog, or waiting for your next Zoom lecture to begin. Our first three episodes tackle:
- Evaluation of Gastrointestinal Bleeding
- Structure and Function of the Pituitary Gland
- Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
How to Subscribe to the Rx Bricks Podcast
We know that many of you already have your favorite podcast players, so we’ve made it easy for you to subscribe to some of the most popular ones, including:
However, if you have an iOS device (such as an iPhone or iPad), we recommend that you use Overcast. And here’s why:
- Most podcast players are good at playing audio, but Overcast also allows you to see images that we embed within the podcast. Medicine is often a very visual discipline, so you might find these images helpful. Again, you don’t need to see the images to enjoy the podcast, but they’re a nice touch.
- Overcast also has chapter support, which means that you can jump directly to the section of the podcast you’re most interested in, rather than using the forward and reverse buttons to find key content.
This short clip shows you how the Rx Bricks podcast looks and operates on an iPhone through Overcast.

If you haven’t tried Rx Bricks or USMLE-Rx yet, you can sign up for a free account by going here. During the first 5 days, you’ll gain full access to our Rx360+ program, which includes Step 1 Qmax, Express Videos, Flash Facts, and our entire Rx Bricks library. After the 5-day period, you will still be able to access over 150 bricks, including the entire collections for General Microbiology and Cellular and Molecular Biology (aka, Biochem).
If you like the podcast, let us know. We’d also love for you to leave a review on Apple Podcasts. It helps with our visibility, and the more med students (or future med students) listen to the podcast, the more we can provide to the future physicians of the world.
