December 18, 2018

Today we have a very special episode as we're announcing a new host for the ITB Podcast. Dr. Ted X. O'Connell (website here) is the author of Crush Step 1, USMLE Step 2 Secrets, USMLE Step 3 Secrets and a bunch of other books in the medical education space. He also has a free podcast/audiobook version of USMLE Step 2 secrets which you can find on iTunes here. We are excited to have Dr. O'Connell join the ITB platform. In the months ahead, you'll be hearing from him a lot more, especially over on the Study Smarter Channel. ITB is "hella stoked" to have such an experienced educator join our team.
