The idea of #CodePeriwinkle is a satirical audio sketch comedy for medicine created by... you, at least that's the goal ;) Think of it like John Oliver (or the Colbert Report) + SNL + Grey's Anatomy. But in a podcast.
Because we believe creativity is at least a 2nd line treatment for burn out, and we're a podcasting company founded by doctors. Why wouldn't we offer an avenue for creative expression to colleagues who don't have the time to make their own podcast?
We write stuff. You write stuff. We create material as a community, then we'll turn it into a podcast episode. Just email or tag us, or use #CodePeriwinkle to get our attention. We'll give you credit on the show.
Anything funny and medical: social media accounts, memes, absurd news, scripts or ideas for sketches, fake #USMLE Q's or ads. Hell, we'll even take knock-knock jokes. None of us has time to make this show....but all of us might ;)
The absurdities of modern health care, especially within the profession of medicine and medical education (shout out to the med students). We might put specific topics in the Twitter bio, so check that periodically.
Our CEO doesn't even get paid, so probably not. We'll give you credit of course. If we do achieve the ability to compensate contributors, sorry attendings, but you'll be last on the list after we figure out how to pay medical students.
Contact us if you want to be a writer, "voice actor", design art, sing a song parody, be an "idea person", host episodes, run our social media etc. What this show looks like is up to all who help create it.
