Clearly Communicated

Dr Norman Swan does an excellent job of clearly communcating everything to do with our anatomy, whether it is funcioning as it should or not. That information can really help to allay fears and make life easier.

Fantastic, critical journalism and questioning, great translation for non-medicos

I love Dr Norman Swan’s cheeky and interrogative style and he holds the medical and research communities to account. I think I have this podcast to account for increasing my health literacy and keeping me up to date by translating research and evidence. Thanks!

Well presented, reliable background on health matters.

I don’t usually listen to ABC Radio National, so I am grateful this weekly report is available as a podcast. The 30 minute time frame allows material to be presented in some depth, and more than one topic can be addressed. Dr. Swan is an excellent presenter and the material he selects is very worth knowing about. Highly recommended.
