Raw Talk Podcast is a graduate student-run podcast all about medical science, and the people who make it happen. We focus on the journeys, perspectives, and expertise of health researchers, professionals, students, patients, and community members at the University of Toronto and beyond. We are based at the Institute of Medical Science in the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, at the University of Toronto.
Our mission is to stimulate medical science research within the life sciences community at U of T and beyond; to provide guidance to current and prospective graduate students; and to engage and educate the public in medical science innovation and translational research.
Raw Talk is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment for everyone, and we are committed to highlighting issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion in STEM, and to changing perceptions and challenging stereotypes within the medical science field.

Raw Talk Podcast would like to acknowledge the land on which the University of Toronto and the podcast operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
Raw Talk Podcast has been supported since our founding by the Institute of Medical Science in the Temerty Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. We are also grateful to our many supporters over the years, including the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies, Graduate Student Union, Student Life, Health Innovation Hub, and the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, as well as TD Insurance, MBNA, JLabs, INVIVO, MUSE, and the Gairdner Foundation.
