Practical elements of healthcare environmental cleaning - With Brett Mitchell and Martin Kiernan

Infection Control Matters

In this podcast, Brett and Martin discuss a paper from March 2021 published by Assadian and colleagues, in the Journal of Hospital Infection. "Practical recommendations for routine cleaning and disinfection procedures in healthcare institutions: a narrative review" https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33744383/. We particularly liked the way that the paper is structured and that, although published in a focused scientific journal, the paper is accessible to all with an interest in hospital hygiene.

Classical Classroom, Episode 115: Awakening John Williams’ “Force” With Brett Mitchell

Classical Classroom

This episode is full of spoilers – not just spoilers about The Force Awakens, but about future Star Wars episodes. Okay – they could be future spoilers. Right now, they’re just our attempts at trying to find the Easter eggs hidden in John Williams’ new score. This may be the nerdiest and most epic episode of Classical Classroom to date. Brett Mitchell, Associate Conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra, is your guide through the music of the latest Star Wars episode. He teaches about John Williams as a composer and about important tools of the compositional trade, and reveals how this new music is tied to Williams’ scores for the original films. Mitchell takes no prisoners, and does not care for Ewoks. Prepare for hyperdrive. Music for the episode: “Ride of the Valkyries.” From The Ring Cycle, by Richard Wagner. Music from the original motion picture scores for  Star Wars: Episode 1, The Phantom Menace Star Wars: Episode 4, A New Hope  Star Wars: Episode 7, The Force Awakens Audio production by X-Wing pilot Todd “Dameron” Hulslander with lightsaber sounds by Dacia Clay and editing by Mark DiClaudio.
