So many things impact our health. The physical things around you, the social interactions, the policies you may never notice, are all quietly there, influencing our health and wellbeing in subtle ways everyday. Some are there on purpose to prevent bad outcomes, some are issues that we still need to address, but most go unnoticed by many of us. This is the world of public health; a science of understanding the countless forces and designing solutions to help prevent or mitigate harm and improve the health of the people. Every Thursday, this podcast explores one concept and delves into those hidden forces. Welcome to Everything is Public Health.

Variety of topics

There’s a good pace in every episode, and the topics are very relevant. Everything IS public health. Easy to listen, yet thought provoking.

Truth… everything IS public health!

Love this! As one working in public health I love hearing about other areas. This is a great way to share with students, friends and family how everything is public health! Thanks and keep the episodes coming!

Who is the intended audience?

The topics are discussed like two people would talk at a restaurant. The hosts talk about things like lead paint being bad or fluoride in water being controversial. A non public health listener would like more information on WHY these things are bad/controversial, but minimal supporting facts are given. A public health audience also learns nothing from a superficial discussion of a topic. The book club discussion is a cool idea, but they start the podcast only after having read the first 46 pages themselves. That summarizes my frustration with this series.

Love the hosts and their interaction, so this gives my review one additional star. I WANT to love this podcast, and I have listened to every episode before reviewing. Please find your audience and research/present accordingly.
