Informative. In depth. Host researches.

This podcast is one of my top three to follow from the many I listen to.
Norman Swan knows a lot about health generally and researches episode subjects in depth. The caliber of his guests indicate Swan is respected as an interviewer in health subjects. He keeps the interviews interesting, informative and moving along.

My Favorite Podcast

The Health Report gets into each topic with enough depth to be educational and thought provoking. I regularly find myself printing off the transcripts to share with friends that don't have an Ipod. It's well produced and easy to listen to.
