F.A. Davis Favorite Health Care Podcasts

Our Favorite Health Care Podcasts

Podcasts are becoming one of the quickest-growing methods for people to receive news and entertainment. According to Pew Research, podcast listenership reached its highest point in 2014, with the success of such podcasts like Serial and the launch of three new podcast networks.

In 2015, the trend is continuing, and we are now at a point where nearly double the amount of people are listening to podcasts than in 2008 (from 9% of Americans to 17%).

There is no shortage of podcasts for all these new listeners. There are comedy podcasts, ones about celebrity gossip, podcasts that talk about your favorite book, movie, show, etc. Basically, there is a podcast for everything. And some of the best podcasts are the ones that are healthcare-related.
