A New Year, a new strategy, and our newly branded podcast channel

Published: 24/01/2022

Today the Royal College of Anaesthetists launches Anaesthesia on Air, a podcast channel which brings together experts from various sectors of anaesthesia in conversation to discuss all things related to our specialty.

From clinical topics to wellbeing and sustainability, Anaesthesia on Air will tackle timely issues as well as invite speakers and commentators to debate the future of the specialty. The rebrand of RCoA podcasts includes slick new music as well as a vibrant and striking logo to ensure listeners can easily identify it.

Graham Blair, Associate Director of Education and Events, Royal College of Anaesthetists said:

“RCoA podcasts have been going from strength to strength and my hope is that Anaesthesia on Air, will bring even fresher, ever more timely content to listeners. Our aim is to invite and amplify voices in the anaesthetic arena as well as other thought-leaders from sectors with relevant insight into the specialty. We are excited about sharing the content we have planned, and to continue to grow our listenership with an open dialogue providing valued and informative content.”

As part of today’s launch – the College is sharing a special podcast interview with Dr Fiona Donald, the new President of the RCoA. Dr Fiona Donald: The RCoA Presidency & Me, gives us an insight into what drives her, her ambitions for the College, what its new strategy will mean for us all. Fiona also shares advice she’d give her younger self as a way of encouraging those entering the specialty today.
