#94 social freezing mit julia bosch i tiktok-verbot i digita


Im “Catchup” geht es um den Claim des FC Viktoria, nicht gewinnen, sondern etwas ändern zu wollen, um digitale Unterschriften und die Stellschrauben, die 360 Grad Feedback effektiv machen.

Im “Deep dive” ist Julia Bösch zu Gast, die über das in Deutschland noch sehr tabuisierte Thema Social Freezing spricht. Dabei werden einer Frau unbefruchtete Eizellen entnommen und eingefroren, um später die Chance auf eine Schwangerschaft zu erhöhen. Lea und Verena sprechen mit ihr über den Prozess, die Kosten und über Scham in Kinderwunschkliniken. Wieso ist sie mit dem Thema an die Öffentlichkeit gegangen und was muss passieren, damit noch mehr Frauen die Möglichkeit eröffnet wird, auf diesem Weg ein Kind zu bekommen?

Bei “Was bewegt uns” geht es um das potentielle TikTok-Verbot in den USA und um ihre Haltung dazu, Kinder und Jugendliche in sozialen Medien verstärkt schützen zu müssen.

In der Kategorie “Empfehlung der Woche” stellen die beiden eine App vor, die euch wirklich hilft, euren digitalen Konsum zu beschränken.

ted’s sunday pick: the spermageddon is coming

Each Sunday, TED shares an episode of another podcast we think you’ll love, handpicked for you… by us. Today: an episode from Am I Normal?, a podcast where endlessly curious data journalist Mona Chalabi dives into the numbers of our most pressing questions.

“You should start thinking about kids at your age! Your biological clock is ticking!” When we talk about fertility, there’s one section of the population that’s consistently subjected to fear mongering: the people with the ovaries. But is that worry backed up by data? Should we be stressed out about sperm too? Scientist Joe Osmundson divulges his own fears and findings on the journey to save his sperm, and Mona breaks down the scientific, cultural, and psychological elements that have shaped the way we think and talk about fertility.

830 women die every day from preventable causes related to p

Imagine this.

Fatmata, who had never used an ultrasound, watched a 3-minute tutorial video. Afterwards, with a smartphone, she then scanned 22 women to look for pregnancy risk factors.

Sounds science fiction? 

Well, it’s not. 

 Enya Seguin is the Head of BabyChecker – a smartphone-based ultrasound probe that uses AI to automatically detect pregnancy risk factors. It is created for resource-limited settings and designed for community health workers.

In this conversation we follow Enya’s journey from when she first moved to the Netherlands for University, her experience working in Kenya, and how she was able to bring the first platform to engage health professionals and seekers in Africa.
