This podcast is incredibly HY. You will see a lot of this stuff on your exams. Enough said!

Divine Intervention Episode 224 – Genetic Diseases 2: Chromosomes (For Step 1 and 2CK).
In this podcast, I spend some time reviewing the HY chromosomes (from 1-22) and the classically tested factoids relating to their genetic diseases. I discuss the clinical/NBME presentations of these diseases. I also give some advice to M3s at the tail end of the podcast and a list of the chromosomes (quick drive by) that are necessary to know by exam (Step 1, Step 2CK). There are no attached slides.
Divine Intervention Episode 138 – The Clutch Genetic Diseases Podcast (especially for Step 2CK and Step 1) + Some Thoughts on The New 2CK Exam
In this episode, I perform a very high level review of the vast majority of the genetic diseases tested on the USMLE exams. For those taking 2CK, I would strongly recommend not neglecting this podcast. The same recommendation goes to the folks taking Step 1. At the 32 minute mark, I take a small “podcast break” to give my thoughts on how the NBME appears to be approaching the new Step 2CK questions which tends to offer people a lot of stress and anxiety. You will be doing yourself a huge disservice not learning the bulk of this podcast. If you master this, genetic diseases should be a non-issue going forward. There are no attached slides.

In this episode, I continue our discussion of cell biology as relevant to the USMLE Step 1 Exam while integrating some HY pharmacology and pathology. There are no slides attached as all relevant information is in the podcast.
