Show Notes

Our inaugural episode of the Carver Cast features Dr. Nii Addy, associate professor psychiatry and of cellular and molecular physiology at the Yale School of Medicine.

Dr. Addy received his B.S. in Biology from Duke University and his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Yale University. At Yale, Dr. Addy directs a federally funded research program, where he and his staff use rodent models to investigate the neurobiological bases of substance abuse, depression and anxiety. Dr. Addy is also involved in graduate student and post-graduate training, faculty mentoring, and university-wide diversity and inclusion initiatives at Yale. He serves on the journal editorial board of Biological Psychiatry, Nicotine & Tobacco Research, and Neuropharmacology, and serves as a grant reviewer for the National Institutes of Health’s Center for Scientific Review (CSR). He has presented scientific lectures at universities throughout the United States and Europe, and in Japan. Dr. Addy has also participated in Veritas Forums and community forums on the intersection of mental health, faith, culture and neuroscience. His research and community work have been featured by National Public Radio (NPR), Newsday, the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), The Source Magazine, Chuck Norris, BoldTV, Legitimate Matters, and Relevant Magazine.


The Carver Cast engages with Christian faculty in higher education and highlights the work of those faculty to bridge connections between university, church, and society. In doing so, it seeks to disrupt simultaneously perceptions that Christians are “anti-intellectual” and that higher education is “anti-Christian.” Tune in for a wide-ranging discussion with faculty around the country, with mediocre production quality but excellent content!

Penina Laker and John Inazu are Carver Project faculty fellows and members of the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis, where Laker is assistant professor of communication design and Inazu is a professor of law and religion.
