Winter Short: Mitochondria, Platelets, Golgi, & Green Pens TAPP 127
Episode 127 is one of our winter shorts, where I replay interesting segments from previous episodes. In this one, you'll hear about the role of platelets in immunity, how the Golgi apparatus gets its weird shape, exactly how hot mitochondria get, and why we may want to consider marking assignments and tests with a green pen, rather than a red one. 00:00 | Introduction01:07 | Mitochondria02:29 | Platelets07:15 | Sponsored by AAA, HAPI, and HAPS08:49 | Golgi Apparatus13:51 | Green Pens16:20 | Staying Connected   ★ If you cannot see or activate the audio player, go to: theAPprofessor.org/podcast-episode-127.html 🏅 Apply for your credential (badge/certificate) for listening to this episode: theAPprofessor.org/podcast-episode-127.html/#badge ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Please rate & review this podcast so that others can decide whether to give it a try: RateThisPodcast.com/theAPprofessor ❓ Please take the anonymous survey: theAPprofessor.org/survey ☝️ Questions & Feedback: 1-833-LION-DEN (1-833-546-6336) ✔️ Follow The A&P Professor on Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, Revue, Tumblr, or Instagram! @theAPprofessor 📰 Get the thrice-weekly TAPP Science & Education Updates theAPprofessor.org/updates Guess what? this is one of our winter shorts!

Ten Things We Forget to Tell Students About Cells | A Forest in My Office | TAPP 126
We list ten things that we often forget to tell—or remind—our students about cells. We learn how to create a peaceful forest-like retreat in our office using soundscapes, I get my winter shorts ready (seriously), and Margaret Reece comments about teaching urinary concepts.

Teaching renal anatomy & physiology is tricky and sometimes difficult. In The Pee Episode I'll tell you how I know that for sure.

Dr. Krista Rompolski joins us for a Journal Club episode discussing a study regarding whether it's best to have a separate anatomy course followed by a physiology course, or to combine anatomy & physiology into an integrated two-semester sequence.
