Great info for parents and caregivers

Dr. Mike is great at giving nuanced info in a simple way, and making good points for at-home discussion.

Some episodes are deep dives into a single broad topic, and other are general news of the day for a big audience.

So glad Nationwide Children’s Hosptial does these!

Great quality information

I really appreciate Dr. Mike taking the time and effort to put together these well researched and informative podcasts. I frequently listen to a range of podcasts, both educational and just for fun, and it is rare to find such a quality podcast for the general public. I just have one minor suggestion- please shorten your introduction. I usually have to fast forward through the first 10 mins as it takes this long for the content to start.

Useful and informative.

As a mom and nurse practitioner I enjoy listening to PediaCast. I started listening to the podcast while I was in NP school during my pediatric rotation. It was a great tool to elaborate on subjects we were covering in class and clinicals. Now that I am a mom, I find that there is an episode for all of my concerns.
Dr. Mike consistently provides the most up to date evidence based information. Thanks PediaCast!
