With a focus on teaching you to “think like a question writer”, InsideTheBoards is the leading producer of medical education podcasts. Each year during the dedicated prep time we run a “Study Smarter Series for the USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1” on our Study Smarter Podcast with a focus exclusively on breaking down USMLE style questions. The Crush Step 1 podcast, the second collaboration between InsideTheBoards and Elsevier, features a totally free, audio optimized, complete narration of Crush Step 1: The Ultimate USMLE Step 1 Review by Ted O'Connell, Ryan Pedigo, and Thomas Blair. Crush Step 1 features up-to-date, easy-to-read (or listen to), high yield info on all the material tested on the exam with topics selected by a review board of current medical students and residents who scored in the 99th percentile on the USMLE Step 1. The Crush Step 1 podcast is the perfect companion for your dedicated prep time. It'll be released weekly on its own podcast channel on all the major podcatchers like Spotify and Apple Podcasts. But for now, you can get access to the show with the InsideTheBoards mobile application (details below).
