Great content.

I enjoy Helen’s podcast. I think she’s doing a great job showing how health literacy matters, and in each new episode, she shows how she’s passionate about her work.

Appreciate the latest episode on race but

Oh my... all of Osborne’s sighs and dramatic ooohs and ahhs and tisk tisks of shock .... it’s as if it’s the first time she’s ever thought about this stuff. I’m guessing it probably isn’t but geez. Then again, Osborne’s tone often sounds really patronizing to me. I love her book, but her tone as host makes this podcast hard for me to listen to. She gets in the way a lot and I feel like she could be a better listener.
