The Healthcare Policy Podcast website features audio interviews with experts on current or important health care topics. While there are any number of healthcare-related podcasts and other online programming these offerings typically present a vested interest viewpoint. My podcasts are produced independently, i.e., without any conflicts of interest and moreover are intended to help listeners better understand the inter-section between research and policy analysis and political realities. Listeners are welcomed to forward program comments and suggest programming topics. Comments made by the interviewees are strictly their own and do not represent those of their affiliated organization/s.
