Episode 48: Bioengineering Your Own Path | Bob Guldberg

On this episode, we talk with Dr. Bob Guldberg, who is the Vice President and the Executive Director of the Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact at the University of Oregon. We loved learning about being a successful academic entrepreneur and his work in musculoskeletal tissue regeneration. Bob also shares the importance of embracing interdisciplinarity and creating diverse and inclusive communities (even with our four-legged friends).

Episode 50: Celebrating BOOM | Hannah and Melissa

Happy 50th episode of BOOM! The tables are turned on the “BOOM doctors” Hannah and Melissa and they answer YOUR questions about BOOM, biomechanics, the future, fails, and more.

A note from your hosts… We are SO grateful for all of your support since the beginning of BOOM. We’ve loved being on this journey with you and can’t wait to see what the future holds for BOOM and biomechanics. Much love, Melissa and Hannah

Episode 49: On-Field Baseball Biomechanics - Don't Be Deceived | Mike Sonne

Our guest today is Dr. Mike Sonne, chief scientist at Three Motion AI where they use biomechanics to elevate athlete training and performance in baseball! We learn about how to translate biomechanical evaluations into useable applications like quantifying changes in performance. While you don’t need to be a baseball expert to enjoy this epsiode, we think you’ll be excited to see how biomechanics is informing professional baseball players and get inspired to make a big impact in your own work.

Episode 56: Quantifying the Essence of Drumming Biomechanics | Nadia Azar

We had a great conversation with Professor Nadia Azar, an Associate Professor of Kinesiology at the University of Windsor. For the first time on BOOM, we learn about the biomechanics of drumming and playing other musical instruments. Nadia shares her findings on the mechanics of how playing-related injuries occur and how to prevent them, along with her own journey through biomechanics and music, and how learnings from each can inform the other. One of our favorite takeaways was from Nadia is where she talks about her quest to be an imperfectionist, and learns that at some point you just have to say, “F*** it, the essence is there.”

Episode 57: Open and Accessible Biomechanics Knowledge | Jacob Goodin

Today we are talking with Professor Jacob Goodin. Jacob is an Associate Professor of Kinesiology at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California, and was previously the head strength and conditioning coach and sport scientist for Eastern Tennessee State University’s men’s and women’s tennis teams. We learn more about Jacob’s work in the lab and as a biomechanics teacher for many students around the world through his fantastic YouTube channel. His videos spanning movement science – from at-home workouts to statistics in kinesiology, all taught in a free, accessible, and exciting way – so much to learn from!
