Required Listening For Those Who Want To Understand American Healthcare

I follow politics and policy pretty regularly, and I like to think I'm up to date on most issues. But when it comes to healthcare, I've quickly discovered there's a LOT I don't know. This podcast does a great job of catching you up to the realities so many people are confronting when it comes to managing the cost of thir own healthcare. North Carolina is a particularly crazy state when it comes to health insurance, and this podcast allows real life people to narrate their own stories, engaging the listener and informing them in a very compelling way.

I've already learned a lot by listening. And the episodes are short and pithy, which is great for people juggling multiple podcast subscriptions. Well worth it!
