Timely and relevant

CareTalk is an exceptionally well produced health policy podcast. Topics are timely and relevant to current health policy discussions. Shows are substantively thorough yet not gratuitous or unnecessarily long.

Caretalk has answers

Caretalk is hands down the absolute best healthcare podcast out there. Hosted by the dynamic duo, John and David, this show is an absolute gem. Their engaging banter not only keeps you entertained, but also dives deep into the most critical healthcare challenges our nation faces today. But here's the real kicker - they don't just talk about the problems, they actually provide potential answers and solutions that have the power to revolutionize the healthcare industry. Trust me when I say this, if you work in the field, listening to Caretalk is an absolute must.
