Prolific podcasters release final episode

RadCast has produced its last podcast. In 67 episodes recorded over nearly six years, co-founders Dr. Jamie Howie and Dr. Uzoma Nnajiuba have chalked up interviews with many leading figures in radiology.

The presenters feel they've now ticked off all the interviewees they had initially targeted, including AI opinion leaders, three presidents of the U.K. Royal College of Radiologists (RCR), Radiopaedia founder Prof. Frank Gillard, and coverage of the major subspecialties. "If Jürgen Klopp can step down as Liverpool FC manager, then we can stop doing the podcast and the world will keep spinning!" Nnajiuba quipped.

The time commitment required to stick to a monthly schedule has been another increasing issue now that the presenters have taken up more senior roles and become ever busier. "I must admit that the demands of editing have taken their toll," pointed out Nnajiuba, adding that it takes a few hours to edit each episode. "Even finding the time to record this final episode has become a bit of a nightmare!"

The duo said they are immensely proud of their achievements and have found the whole experience very rewarding and uplifting. According to Howie, the top 3 podcasts were the conversations with Dr. Hedvig Hricak (Women in Focus, recorded at ECR 2019), Prof. Peter Gaines (Interventional radiology), and Dr. Martin Willemink (Uncovering the value of data). Nnajiuba's personal favorites were Dr. Umair Janjua (From the West Midlands to Dubai), Dr. David Little (Advocating for doctors: The physician associate debate), and Dr. Hugh Harvey (Artificial intelligence).

Philip Ward, editor in chief of, was interviewed by RadCast in April 2019 about his career in radiology journalism and trends and publishing and medical imaging (see episode 9). Also, the team won a EuroMinnie award for "The vanishing radiologist with Dr. Adrian Brady," which was recorded in May 2022, just before Brady became president of the European Society of Radiology.

The 66 podcasts have had over 78,000 total plays. About 60% of listeners are in the U.K., followed by 10% in the U.S. and 5% in Australia. RadCast has over 1,800 followers on Instagram, 1,200 on Twitter, and 1,800 on Facebook. The first podcast came out in July 2018 and it featured Dr. John Curtis, a consultant radiologist at Aintree University Hospital, Liverpool. Curtis won the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) Junior Radiologists Forum Trainer of the Year award twice, and he received the RCR Gold medal in 2017.

To come up with new topics, the team held several brainstorming sessions each year. Dr. Muhammad Khan, the third co-founder, played a key role to generate ideas and questions. "There is always a lot of exciting stuff going on in radiology, so it is fertile territory for material. We occasionally get potential guests approaching us, which is flattering," Howie pointed out.

Looking to the future, RadCast Academy will continue its educational activities, including the series of application courses and annual anatomy competition. The group plans to remain active on social media and produce content in the form of occasional videos.
