  1. A show about the cost of health care that’s more entertaining, empowering, and occasionally useful than enraging, and terrifying and depressing. Reporter Dan Weissmann digs in to show how we got into this crazy mess and how we just might live through it.
  2. Bedside Rounds is a storytelling podcast about medical history and medicine’s intersections with society and culture. Host Adam Rodman seeks to tell a few of these weird, wonderful, and intensely human stories that have made modern medicine.
  3. The Drug Classroom (TDC) is an educational resource focused on drugs, drug policy, and related areas. TDC covers a range of topics, including neuroscience, pharmacology, and history.

  5. RED HOT HEALTHCARE is a healthcare leader and industry podcast, which will be carried on ITunes and all major podcast directories. The show is a blend of a weekly summary of top news across the health sector, along with select interviews from healthcare leaders and HIT mavericks.
  6. A truly independent voice bringing you everything from home remedies to the latest medical advances. Pharmacologist Joe Graedon and medical anthropologist Terry Graedon talk to leading experts to discuss their research on issues relating to drugs, herbs, home remedies, vitamins and related health topics. For more than four decades, the Graedons have been teaching, writing, and broadcasting information to help people make informed decisions about their health. Tune in to get up to speed in less than 5 minutes on the week's breaking health news at the top of each podcast. The podcast provides insights not found anywhere else about the pros and cons of prescription and over-the-counter medicines. Hear stories about side effects, interactions, and generic drug complications that often haven’t yet reached the FDA. You will discover details on home remedies, too: foods, herbs, and supplements that can ease the symptoms of common ailments. Our listeners often share their own valuable experiences on our website, and we frequently discuss those stories on the podcast as well.
  7. Behind the Knife is a podcast aimed for everyone interested in not only an in-depth look at the broad range of surgical topics, but a "behind the scenes" look at the interesting, controversial and humanistic side of surgery from some of the giants in the field. Come along with Kevin Kniery, Jason Bingham, John McClellan and Scott Steele on a journey that explores all the disciplines of General Surgery in this informal discussion and interview format. We feel that this is the perfect medium not only to cover important educational topics for all stages of your professional career, but allow you to listen to a first-hand account of not only where we have been from those that pioneered the way, but also an opportunity to explore where we are now and are headed in the not so distant future from surgical leaders.
  8. Emma Hitt Nichols talks to freelance medical writers about their work
  9. Brain Science was launched in 2006 by Dr. Ginger Campbell, an experienced emergency physician with a passion for exploring how recent discoveries in neuroscience are revealing how our brains make us who we are. This podcast is for non-scientists, scientists, and everyone in between. We interview scientists and discuss the latest books about the brain. Monthy episodes resume in June 2017, but all episodes posted since January 2013 are available for FREE in iTunes. Please visit our website for more episodes and transcripts.
