We are seeing an ever-increasing burden of chronic disease, primarily driven by our food and food system. This is perpetuated by agricultural, food and health care policies that don’t support health. We need to rethink disease and reimagine a food system and a health care system the protects health, unburdens the economy from the weight of obesity and chronic disease, protects the environment, helps reverse climate change and creates a nation of healthy children and citizens. This podcast is a...

1. Awesome team! Mark and Lewis - Gentlemen, I listen to both of your podcasts regularly. They are great. This one was especially poignant for me today. Lewis talked a lot about healing the inner child, parenting that child and learning your triggers hat affect your adult relationships. How long did it take you Lewis, to come to a place of peace and knowledge of your triggers?
I want to start the journey.
2. Burping slurping and gulping - Dr mark please consider not taking supplements prior to recording a podcast so you don’t continuously burp. Please don’t drink fluids during a podcast so you don’t continuously slurp. Also consider working with a speech therapist so you can better annunciate and don’t make extraneous noises during podcast. Such good content but difficult to listen to
3. : Genetics of the grain we eat, not genetics of the human - At about the one hour mark of the Hyman/food/obesity problem, they discuss how genetics might be blamed for overeating. However they immediately assumed the genetics of Americans was the issue, it’s not so much. The genetics of wheat is the biggest change. William Davis, “Wheat Belly” fame nails this. / of our calories come from ultra processed food so it’s impractical to get this to go away, but only / is from grains. We could replace that! The majority of our appetite aberration is (probably) caused by the bit of wheat protein after digestion in our diet. Get rid of processed grain (including bread) “whole” or not, out of your diet and replace with legumes, nuts and non-grass seeds which are greatly undereaten. Nutrition is complex and separating the wheat from the chaff (haha) is hard and obfuscation is easy. This simple step — avoid all wheat— will solve -% of the overeating problem.
4. Great information - I’m giving this stars based solely on the editing, which is sometimes very choppy. But that’s no reason not to listen. This pod is full of great information and has so far (this past month) turned me on to books that have been extremely helpful. Dr. Hyman is a chatty, warm and charming host, and is himself full of great advice and perspective. Looking forward to reading the new book on Longevity.
5. Mark Hyman thinks “young” is the same as “healthy” - Some episodes have helpful, thoughtful information and insights but they are overshadowed by mark’s interruptions and comments. Let your guests speak! I thought this was a health podcast that would have lots of different topics for a diverse audience but it seems the focus is on “being young.” Mark seems to equate youth with health and it comes off as though he is absolutely terrified of embracing his age. Also, the burping and slurping is so gross and I’m not sure if it bothers anyone else but it bothers me!
6. Political views off putting - Listening to the episode on failing and succeeding in love. I was liking the podcast until you decided to put down a past president with a comment you made. It was extremely off putting and we completely lost interest in the rest of your podcast. Not a good idea to alienate listeners by bad mouthing a president. You should leave those kind of comments out of your podcasts.
7. Why does he even bother having guests on? - I can not listen to this show. Dr. Hyman’s ego is massive. He constantly interrupts and talks over his guests. Hyman is so set on what HE wants to impart that the very interesting, knowledgeable, and learned guests are left mumbling. The flow of the interview is thrown off each time his demanding voice interrupts what could be an interesting discussion. He needs to learn how to listen, take an interest in what others are saying, and shut up. At this point, I am surprised he finds guests to come on the show. He also burbs A LOT - RIGHT into the mic! It is extremely offputting.
8. Informative but also Repetitive - This podcasts is informative. I appreciate Dr. Hyman’s holistic approach to his work, something I wish more doctors did. I find it can be pretty repetitive most episodes. He tends to talk over his guests, and when he does it seems to be discourse on his “low body fat percentage” which he loves to just casually slip in. The silent burping that happens weirds me out, like maybe he talks to quickly and runs out of breath? I loved his books and the Fed Up documentary. Maybe folks should start with those then transition to the podcast.
9. Informative, but bad habits… - Dr. Hyman holds an amazing array of information and a path to health that I agree with. However, while listening to the interviews I often can’t get past the rude behaviors exhibited to guests and the constant burping and no respect of an “excuse me.” You can be smart and knowledgeable, and still be a good human. I find a lot of arrogance in recent episodes. I’m disappointed, I hope you find a kinder path.
10. Really good info, but… - I think Dr. H is great and I love his integrative approach. Like a few others commented, unfortunately I struggle with mouth noises- slurping, gulping, and the stifled burping. Guess I’m not the only one with misophonia out there. Will still listen occasionally and view this as my problem because it transcends other areas of my life. Definitely won’t listen to this pod with headphones! He talks over his guests at times, but I get the impression he’s just really enthusiastic rather than intentionally rude.
11. Loaded with information but very flawed - I agree with many others while knowledgeable on a lot of information, the constant interruption of guests and talking over the top is frustrating;you have guests on there for a reason, be knowledgeable and also give them a chance to share their experience as well and ask more questions and talk. Also regarding the episode with diet and Alzheimer’s,adhd, etc; you discuss vegan diet as possibly having trouble getting protein, you went so far as to mention they would need to eat several cups of beans or rice today and there aren’t many choices.. as a vegan of years who also sees a nutritionist must disagree. There are many ways to obtain protein as a vegan and be extremely healthy and you can spread that out to breakfast lunch and dinner. Legumes, nut butters, tofu, quinoa,chickpeas, lentils, chia seeds, hemp seeds, rye bread.. and literally so much else. I think if you are going to offer nutritional advice I would be really helpful to have a specialist that can talk to that point but understands vegan diets.
12. Great Info, but Host Interrupts a Lot - I really appreciate the knowledge and perspective shared by Dr. Hyman in every episode. He makes valuable information accessible. However, he has a terrible habit of talking over his interviewees. His constant interruptions drive me crazy, to the point that I often can’t finish an episode even though I’m interested in the topic. Please just ask the question and listen. Let the guest finish his or her thought!
13. Guests Don’t Get to Speak - Dr Hyman is obviously very knowledgeable and has tons of good info to share. Unfortunately, he gets so excited about each topic that his expert guests rarely get to say much other than to agree with Dr Hyman’s monologue. I would encourage him to listen more and fully utilize the knowledgeable resources that are his guests. Otherwise, it’s superfluous to have them on the podcast.
14. Fantastic Channel & Podcast - I am yrs old with Type diabetes, atherosclerosis, osteoarthritis, gluten intolerance, among other health issues. My sister found Dr Hyman’s channel. She has a great Functional MD in the Cleveland area who recommended Dr Hyman’s podcast. Since following Dr Hyman I have significantly reduced my intake of refined carbs and sugar, and lost over lbs (from lbs to ). Thanks for the great info!
15. Grateful - This podcast is so informative and I am grateful for the knowledge and insight that Dr. Hyman and his guests share with all of us. I have learned so much and look forward to the release of each episode. The variety of topics covered - health, emotion, spiritual - are essential to our overall wellness.
16. Bittersweet - I have read so much on Dr. Hyman work and was excited to see there was a podcast. Tried listening to my first episode today. I couldn’t get past him interrupting the guest, rudely raising his voice commanding them to stop and mumbling over the information guest was attempting to provide. minutes in, Unsubscribing.
17. Dr Hyman - I’m a subscriber and haven’t taken the time to review but I’ve been really enjoying the Sessions enormously the last few months
and felt I should pass it along. Dr Hyman himself seems a little calmer.. not talking as fast .. and listening a little more intently to what his guests are sharing
You’ve giving me pause as well
Thank you so much… stay well

1. Longevity and health information superstar! - I have been listening to Peter Attia’s podcast for years now. You, Dr Attia have an amazing style and voice for so many interesting health topics. I look forward to checking a few times a week to see what has downloaded for my listening experience. I just heard you speak with Dr Huberman about emotional health and a glimpse of your own struggles and experiences. It was so moving. Thank you for showing that side of life with such honesty and heart.
2. Awesome & Informative - As a non-medical professional, I’ve learned so much from this podcast. Dr. Attia provides you the tools needed to be your own advocate regarding your health. He has wonderful guests and a great personality. I really enjoy listening and can’t wait for new episodes. Thank you for sharing what you know with the public and keeping us informed of our rights and crucial info so that we can be up-to-date on Healthcare news.
3. Episode The Fentanyl Crisis - Targeting Non Addicts - This minute episode is a “Public Service Announcement” made by Dr. Attia and broadcasted immediately after the interview. Please take the time to listen to the first minutes. That’s all that you’ll need to understand how important this episode is to you, your friends and family and this country.
4. Always interesting - I really like this show, especially because Dr Attia doesn’t shy away from getting very medical, technical and sciencey. You know he is passionate about improving health and lifespan from how into
Things he gets! This really makes this podcast stand apart from other health podcasts. I am a layperson, so things often go over my head, but I always learn things on each epidural. I recommend highly the most recent episide with Dr Layne Norton ( ) - it might be the most I’ve learned on health and fitness from any one single podcast ( it was over hours long too!) I also found the interview with Holly Baxter () - as a woman I loved that episode. Thanks Dr Attia!
5. Look forward to each episode - I am sorry that I hadn’t connected with you sooner. I learned of you from the Limitless series and searched for you. Thankfully you were easy to find. As a year old that is trying to change mindset and activity to create a longer and healthier life your content is invaluable. The more I listen, the more I learn so I can take more control of how I age. I’ve shared your podcast with my circle of influence and will continue to do so as the opportunity presents itself.
6. If Peter would only stop interrupting… - …the podcasts would be shorter and we could hear the guests. Interviewees are usually excellent, but Peter’s ego and need to demonstrate his superior knowledge dominate every podcast. I finally gave up with the upper extremity podcast - let the guy talk! The caloric restriction/fasting podcast was also a great example of Peter being unwilling to let actual data and information intrude on his beliefs/practices. I'm done.
7. A poor recommendation by MMM - I theory I should love this show but I can never get through it. I become so frustrated that the hosts talk about what they are going to talk about and - minutes in they still haven’t actually gotten into the subject matter. After three episodes I give up. GET TO THE POINT. So frustrating. You did me wrong Mr. Money Mustache.
8. Morning knowledge - I listen to this podcast before I start my day. I am thankful for you and all of the scientists who are digging deeper into our anatomy and learning the next level of health facts and sharing your findings with the world. Is there anyway to contact your team to ask specific questions? Thank you for the all the deeper science you are sharing and for the no nonsense approach in which you and your people express it.
9. Excellent Medical and Longevity Content, But Please No Politics - I’ve listened to this podcast for years now and have enjoyed the information and learning. I almost unsubscribed when Dr. Attia went heavy on the politics in the middle of the pandemic. I’m sure it wasn’t his intent, but his tone and approach was quite condescending in those episodes. Give him a listen for lots of good learning.
10. Content is generally helpful…. and I recommend that Peter develop a bit of humility - Yes, you are accomplished and intelligent. And you are arrogant. For example, In your interview with Andrew Huberman, you interrupted him frequently. Maybe you might consider developing some humility? You are not better than other people. You have a lot to contribute. Don’t diminish your impact by being arrogant. Humility is a strength, not a weakness.
11. Good information with a cost - I am thankful for the nuggets of information that come out of these discussions but sometimes the virtue signaling is a little heavy for my taste. I’ve been a subscriber for a few years and stick around to hear how I can stay as active as possible for as long as possible. I enjoy Peter’s perspective but it is hard to tell if he is elaborating on a discussion point to benefit the listener or to demonstrate the difference between himself and the “common listener”.
12. A Beautiful Blend of Knowledge and Humility - Peter Attia has done what most health professionals think they’re doing with their podcast: create a platform for open dialogue that, as far as I can tell, is truly dedicated to being evidence-based without being dogmatic. This is one of the greatest, most in depth health podcasts I have ever listened to.
13. Obsession with being muscled and finding evidence to support consumption of protein is damaging - My own father was concerned with being muscled and consumption of protein until the day he decided to retire. He rode his bike up to the pool to swim his daily laps and lift weights on his lunch break until he had a massive heart attack and drowned in the pool. High consumption of protein did nothing for his longevity when he died at from atherosclerosis eating a ketogenic style diet. There is plenty of supporting evidence that our overconsumption of protein is not benefiting us. Being muscled is absolutely important; however, going on intuition instead of current science regarding consumption protein is a damaging message to promote.
14. Episode with Matt Kaeberlein - dissapointment - I have been enjoing lots of deep dive health talks and was looking forward to hear about nutrition from Matt Kaerberlein. I was dissapointed with this episode. Too much talk about mice studies with no relation to humans, and about protein consumption timing. I expected to hear about effect of nutrition and excercise on mTOR, autophagy, effect on extention of lifespan in humans.
15. Treasure Trove of Information - I started listening to podcasts in search of information to heal myself and get on a healthier path. I started with Bulletproof Radio over years ago and have listened to an assortment since then. Revolution Health Radio was the peak for me until I found this show. You have to fight your way through some egotism and privileged perspective, but if you do there is an immensely bountiful treasure of knowledge. Peter Attia has an amazing breadth of knowledge, experience, and detailed attention applied to both. I love that this show does not pander to a lack of education/training in society and focuses more on thorough discussion of the topic utilizing all the information at hand.
16. Not what it really claims to be - I think you can delete the “full stop” in the intro. I think this is a podcast dedicated to the health and well-being of white males with lifestyles like Dr. Attias. I hear very little about the impact of bias in the research, women’s hormones, menopausal impacts on diet and exercise choices. Or what are gender differences in the research in mice that is frequently discussed. What applies or doesn’t apply to populations raised in poverty or who have inherited hypo pressure? Certainly there a ton of great topics but this is not meant for all of us. Full stop.
17. I didn’t think I’d be interested in this topic - This episode floored me in so many ways. I found myself riveted listening to it, Shireen clearly explains DBT and it’s benefits in a way that prompted me to get online to learn more. And I couldn’t stop thinking about in the subsequent days. I was surprised at how open and vulnerable Peter was about his own experience with this type of therapy. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to be a better human. Thank you for this episode!!
The practice of medicine–filled with moments of joy, suffering, grace, sorrow, and hope–offers a window into the human condition. Though serving as guides and companions to patients’ illness experiences is profoundly meaningful work, the busy nature of modern medicine can blind its own practitioners to the reasons they entered it in the first place. Join oncologist Tyler Johnson and medical trainee Henry Bair as they meet with doctors, patients, leaders, educators, and others in healthcare...

1. A Space for Mystery - The title is both of an episode and of a stance. This podcast series recognizes medicine as a moral art, intrinsically imbued with meaning that is beyond technological expertise. Wonder if Chatbots will replace doctors? Not doctors like those in the episodes! Grateful for wisdom in an age of burnout, economic efficiency and depersonalization in medicine. Keep going!
2. NAM President - Listened to episode with the NAM president and was impressed how much the hosts got him to talk about his personal experiences. It's valuable to hear how much he struggled during his career despite now being literally one of the most important and notable physician leaders in America.
3. Brutal honesty - Came across this recent episode with Arghavan Salles and it's amazing. She talks about the not-so-glamorous aspects of a medical career particularly through a DEI lens, and it's not until I heard this that I realized how uncommon these conversations happen. She's right, medical culture tends to shy away from talking about the negative parts of the job. I'm glad she's shining a light on it.
4. Bold - Found this show because of the episode on physician assisted dying. And...just wow. So bold of the guest to talk openly about this difficult work, and wonderful for the hosts for having her on -- even though one of them is against physician assisted dying. This episode gave me many new perspectives about this kind of medicine. Will be listening to more episodes now.
5. Stunning, poignant, thoughtful, insightful - What is most impressive about this show is that many episodes are not only for doctors, but for anyone who experiences/has experienced the pain of losing a loved one, the suffering that comes from a terrible diagnosis, the existential uncertainty of what living and dying all means, and the hope that comes from the compassion of friends during difficult times. Episode after episode, I keep finding stories that resonate with me deeply. Give it a try.
6. Stories to cherish - I was blown away by the episode with Wes Ely. Over the course of an hour, he shares stories that brought me to tears several times. He talks about his approach to patient care as a "burnout solution" and as a resident, I couldn't agree more. I'm convinced that no doctor who sees patients the away Ely does can experience burnout for long.
7. Incredible nurse episode - The Nov episode with the nurse is simply incredible. This nurse comforts patients in ways I have never seen from other healthcare providers. How I wish all nurses and doctors could learn from her, and how I wish all patients had the privilege of being cared for by someone like her. Please keep up this important work.
8. Against Burnout - Recent studies have repeatedly found that at least half of all doctors in America experience burnout, finding their work meaningless. This is a shocking statistic. I, like the hosts of this show, believe that helping people find hope and solace in life's darkest moments can be profoundly purposeful work. The stories on this podcast reveal the diverse ways that helping patients can manifest, and guests often share strategies for how to stay focused on the most meaningful parts of a career in medicine. If more doctors heard these stories and adopted the mindset and practices discussed on this show, a large portion of them would discover a salve for burnout.
9. Great (but US-centric) stories - Most episodes have great stories about medicine. Guests talk about a wide variety of subjects, from clinician burnout to medical humanities to health technologies. It can be a little US-centric, however, when they talk about the problems in American healthcare. I'm not sure how applicable these kinds of conversations are to non-US-based doctors. Would be good to have a guest who is a doctor from outside of America. Still, the patient stories have been universally relatable.
10. The truth about medicine - This show features stunning conversations about what it's like to be a healthcare worker in America — both the highs and the lows. The guests aren't afraid to really dig into what's wrong with medicine, but at the same time are willing to discuss some of the most difficult and rewarding moments of their careers. This is a side of medicine that isn't talked about nearly as much as it should be. This show nails it. Every minute is worthwhile.
11. Powerful stories - Show hosts Henry & Tyler have created a place for amazing and open dialogue both with patients and with some of the biggest medical thinkers of our time. Each episode is essentially a deep dive into the life and career of the guest. Each episode with a patient (or caregiver) opens up a whole universe of human experience, filled with everyday wisdom. Episodes with well-known thinkers shed light on aspects of their personal stories that say a lot about what makes for a purposeful life. Could not give this show a higher recommendation.
12. Recommended listening for my nursing students! - Even though your podcast is tailored to an audience of doctors, I feel that it should be highly recommended for all those who enter the healthcare profession. As a certified nursing instructor for many years AND a cancer survivor, I can think of many stories that would also be informative from my experiences…some positive and some not so much. I wish I had an avenue for sharing…maybe the guts to start my own Nurse podcast!
13. Life-changing episode - Episode with the dying patient was absolutely transformational. She was so brave for sharing her experiences honestly. The episode has changed how I approach illness and relationships. The fact that she passed away less than a week after the episode was released only makes it more meaningful.
14. Important for our time - The medical profession is facing a crisis of meaning, with rapid change coming in terms of technology, administration, social trends, and patient demographics. This podcast addresses all of these challenges and emerges hopeful. For all doctors and other healthcare workers who are wondering what this career means and where it is/should be headed, this show will be rewarding.
15. Much needed conversations - These are important conversations we need to be having: how to solve physician burnout, how to inspire the next generation of doctors, how doctors fail patients, how doctors can better connect to patients, and how doctors overcome heartbreaking moments in their practice. Love this show.
16. All Doctors — Please Listen - Absolutely fantastic podcast that profiles some of the best thinkers in medicine working today. The range of clinicians is a huge plus, from established leaders of healthcare to young doctors. A big thanks to the hosts for searching far and wide for the most interesting voices in healthcare.
17. Challenging, heartwarming, reflective, honest - I don’t know this for certain, but my sense is that medicine used to be a deeply humanistic profession. At least, this is what I feel from reading the range of physician-writers throughout history from Hippocrates, Osler, Maugham, Chekhov, and even modern writers such as Oliver Sacks and Atul Gawande. Over the last century, medicine has gradually become increasingly scientific and scientistic, with the idea being that the quantifiable and objective takes precedence over the intuitive, internal, reflective, subjective. In its own little way, this podcast is serving to highlight what the latter can do for medical practitioners. My hope is that more doctors (and other clinicians) find this podcast. I will be sharing it with everyone I know.
Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion: Western medicine isn’t helping people lead better lives. Now that I’ve realized this, I’ve become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. I hope you’ll joi...

1. If you have arthritis you MUST listen - Paul is probably the most knowledgeable doctor I’ve heard. While i am not a meat eater, his information and especially emphasis on oxalates is life changing. If you have arthritis you must eliminate oxalate foods. Even my dog was affected by oxalates (from organ treats) which caused her to develop a limp. When I removed oxalates my joints stopped aching! I have a connective tissue disorder and I’m sure it has to do with a lifetime of not knowing about oxalates. Thank you Paul for your relentless effort to get this information out!
2. Good studies to back up info - Good info, and I like that he uses actual studies to back up what he’s talking about, not just opinion. Also encourages you to critically think and not just accept all information. Agree that the ads are way too long, but I just look at the timeline and skip forward to the actual podcast. Any way these can go to the end? Also one comment, kind of difficult to listen to when he gives a little laugh under his breath every few sentences. Maybe can just say the statement straightforward without the added chuckle about things he knows to be false or silly. Thanks for the info.
3. Life changing - Dr. Paul Saladino (with his podcast) has done more for me than any primary care physician I’ve seen in person. He has solutions for a healthier lifestyle, when modern healthcare has clearly failed us miserably. I’ve known for a long time that mainstream medicine has been misleading us in preventative health and wellness, but this podcast has been a real eye-opener. I love that he investigates and finds interesting studies and research to back up his ideas. Would love to thank him for pushing through the naysayers and getting this message out! % recommend this podcast to anyone interested in improving their quality of life.
4. Answer to my autoimmune disease - I’ve been studying nutrition for two decades just for fun. I’ve tried everything out there, but totally poopoo’d the carnivore diet. Was whole food vegan for years and felt like dirt! Food allergies and gut issues worsened. My recent diagnosis with a serious and rare autoimmune disease sent me on a quest to get to the root cause and cure this thing. That’s when I stumbled upon Dr. Saladino. Everything he shares pertaining to vegetables, seeds, and grains and what they do in the body is spot on in my experience. In a short time I’m feeling better, rashes are gone, and I’m hopeful for my long term prognosis. My year old mom is even doing this with her advanced Rheumatoid Arthritis and Psoriasis. She noticed a difference in one day! There’s something to this! Be open-minded and learn!
5. Meat the Doctor! - Doctor Paul Saladino is a trailblazer in the realm of nutritional science. His ancestral perspective on diet, back by his assessments and knowledge of nutritional studies has shined the light of day on the anti-nutrition diets presented to us as optimal. My mood and body have changed immensely for the better since I began eating an organ rich animal based high protein diet. I cannot thank him enough for presenting the information that he does in every show.
6. How to ignore scientific evidence - Listen to this podcast if you enjoy listening to a man with no specialized training dismiss the vast majority of best available evidence on nutrition and physiology. It’s basically just cherry picking information and Paul riffing about his terrible understanding of nutritional epidemiology and anthropological evidence (spoiler alert: ancestral humans lived much shorter lives than modern ones)
7. Changed my life - Thanks for all your info Paul!! You’ve helped change my life with your info! Healthier than ever, arthritis pain almost completely disappeared, skin is nicer than ever, I’ve been converting so many people by sharing all your teachings and information! Thank you for leading by example!! Much love!
8. Salt - Hey Paul love the content! Your podcast is one of my favorites and I always listen to it while at work to help me get through the boring hr shifts lol. I tried Colima salt and it’s amazing, I’ve also seen you recommend Redmond (will probably try as well) but I’ve also been looking into other salts and found that Celtic Kosher salt is also from Colima Mexico and was wondering if you ever heard or tried them. They have a few different kinds of salts sourced from different places and was curious about your thoughts. Thanks!
9. Dangers of a keto diet - Dr. Paul, slam dunk with this episode! Packed with high quality info. Loved it. Thanks for what you do. Keep it up, brother. Our son was on keto for years. It cured his epilepsy after years of horrible drugs that failed. So, we have studied keto extensively and lived it as a lifestyle and this podcast really resonated with me. Thank you.
10. Dr. Gundry episode - Amazing podcast with Dr. Gundry, I highly respect him because he has helped me with gut issues. Also, I think it was amazing how you challenged him about the sesame oil and how important fruit is for humans. However, it would be nice to see if you could leave the hadza tribe for a year and check if they do really eat the honey the whole year around ! Keep doing what you are doing,
11. Paul Saladino is THE guy - Paul Saladino is the man. I’ve been following him since I caught him on Joe Rogan. Very well educated, happy to see him grow and evolve in his thinking and diet from strictly carnivore to animal-based, just goes to show he truly practices what he preaches and follows the data where it leads. Super informative and extremely entertaining just listening to Paul’s passion for radical health.
12. Fresh Perspective - Dr Paul’s passion to uncover information in the area of regenerative farming and eating more quality meat in one's diet is extraordinary. He backs up his assertions and conclusions with medical studies and expert opinions. He’s not afraid to debate, which seems to be a lost art in a world of misinformation, propaganda, and big money dominating a narrative. Even if you are vegan and think you’ve heard all there is to know about veggies and avoiding animal products, you owe it to yourself to listen to his side of science. And if you into eating meat and animal products, do yourself a favor and listen to his advice how to do it in a healthy and responsible manner since not all meat is raised and produced naturally without side effects. Medial professionals like Dr Saladino should be applauded for taking the time and effort to seek truth and not earn their money from corporations that don’t necessarily have your best interest in mind. One of the best FREE podcasts on modern-day diet studies!
13. Radical heath - There is no other place you’re going to get honest and researched information on how to truly improve your health the right way. Doc Paul truly educates you on health tips the mainstream health and pharma industries don’t want you to know. Join the team and re-educate yourself the right way with Paul Saladino. Also Doc if you happen to read this I just want to say thank you.
14. Never got to topic! - I heard of Dr. S and have no doubt about his commitment to health and his expertise. I found an episode that interested me (Feb ) and started listening. There were so many ads related to sponsors I had literally had to stop listening.
I am a physician and big podcast listener and this was the first time I actually could not go on.
I’m sure the material is excellent but this was like trying to watch TV and get through all the commercials. Very disappointing.
15. Eye Opening - I started listening to this podcast and also viewing content from Carnivore MD on Instagram at the beginning of April. The information and eye opening thought process I have received so far is mind blowing. I’ve started adding a couple ounces a heart and more fruit but less vegetables and harmful plants into my diet and am going to purchase desiccated supplements for Heart & Soil at the beginning of May! I feel amazing. Body weight is very stable from day to day. Recovery and sleep scores on my Oura ring are well over consistently! Thank you Carnivore MD!
16. Whew! - I had listened to the water episode a year ago, and as a result looked up my local water stats. As a result of that I ordered Mountain Spring water which Paul said he used when in Austin. It is delivered to my home in five gallon bottles. Very affordable and good customer service. As I listened to this recent one on water I was worried he wd tell me of some scary findings in spring water but NO! I feel even better about my water choice. Thanks, Dr Paul. Also a happy customer of the desiccated liver (among other products!) as are all the important people in my family.
17. forever grateful - I listen to your podcast weekly and have implemented your radical lifestyle suggestions. I was diagnosed with endometriosis and medicine resistant depression and have been fighting related symptoms my entire life. My story is totally crazy, and it perfectly exemplifies the failures of western medicine. Recently, I completely cut out seeds, nuts, roots, stems, and leaves and started taking Heart & Soil supplements (beef organs, Firestarter, and trachea). Within one month, my inflammation went down so much that I lost pounds and my skin cleared up drastically. I have noticed an incredible amount of energy and immense brain clarity. I am now convinced that my diagnoses are autoimmune and trigged by either something I was or was not getting in my diet. I am finally pulling out of my year long depression and I cannot thank you enough. People now think the way I eat is so radical and I don't give a ! Dr. Paul, you have given me the greatest gift; the ability to laugh and play with my daughter. I am forever grateful.
Hot flashes, vaginal dryness, leaky bladders, weight gain, hair loss, inability to orgasm? Nothing is off limits in these fact filled, solution-driven and often surprisingly funny podcasts that address the specific symptoms women face as they navigate perimenopause and post-menopause. Each segment is like having an in-depth consultation with Dr. Lauren Streicher, a nationally recognized menopause expert and the Medical Director of the Northwestern Medicine Center for Sexual Medicine and Menopaus...

1. Awesome educational podcast - Thank you, thank you for this podcast. I am and am in Menopause. Educational materials are hard to find! Thank you for being my go-to resource for science based facts. Highly recommend! What do you recommend for a year old woman who has a tester one level of ? I am currently doing pellet therapy. Is there something else you would recommend? Thank you for your help! Meggan in Nebraska
2. Hot Doc - Great information explained in a clear way. One of the many helpful podcasts on menopause I pass on to my patients. Listen despite her bazar cover. Not a fan of her showcasing her skinny self while drinking a cocktail. Strange image for a menopause provider! Esp with the new information of the dangers of alcohol. But with that caveat- a good resource.
3. Highly informative and entertaining! - I recently found this podcast, and am going back to the beginning and enjoying listening to every single episode! Dr. Streicher shares a wealth of menopause knowledge and has a refreshingly sex positive attitude. She provides the perfect combination of no nonsense information, compassion, personal anecdotes, and humor. Thank you for this Dr. Streicher!
4. Prolapse - I had complete organ prolapse at right after my third baby in I was ’ lbs. Not your typical candidate I went to my gyno and had a hysterectomy. Then my bladder fell. Went to a urologist and had that “tied up” When my rectum fell soon after I finally got to the right doctor and saw a urogynecologist . He finally diagnosed me correctly and I had a third surgery in two years and he fixed it all. It’s been years and the mesh he used is still holding strong. I am thankful I finally found the right doctor but it took me advocating for myself and searching for the right solution. Same thing happened when I had horrible menopause symptoms. I didn’t give up until I found answers. HRT helped me immensely (I’m still looking for the answer to losing the lbs I gained! ) I think the biggest thing about maintaining good health is doing research for yourself and not stopping until you find a doctor that is willing to help you find the answers.
5. Never Boring yet Informative - It’s getting harder to sort through the misinformation ads on on social media targeted to perimenopause ppl and beyond so fortunately for us Dr Streicher is here to educate and empower. So much to learn from her episodes and appreciate that she’s continually educating herself to keep her listeners up to date with the current knowledge.
6. Great source of knowledge. - As a physician I often have the same discussions about menopause with my patients. Like many other docs I have trouble explaining to my patients in lay terms some complexities of the menopause without making myself too wordy or “dry”. Dr Streicher has a talent for this and that is why I am in awe with her work and podcasts. Evidence- based and straight to the point!
7. BEST podcast you will find on menopause - Every personal opinion backed up with evidence OR logic based on other research! I trust the podcast more than any other because… No ads! No “sponsorships” ONLY CITED research based advice!!!! I learn so much with every episode - it’s like free doctor visits to the best experts in the field. THANK YOU for taking the time to do this podcast for women who don't have an expert that can not only diagnose but also explain BOTH the diagnosis AND treatment options so simply AND thoroughly.
8. Excellent podcast! - As always, Dr. Streicher provides the most accurate and up-to-date information in a relatable and lighthearted way. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone wanting to learn about the changes that occur around the time of menopause or to those going through perimenopause or menopause themselves (basically everyone)!
9. Not Just for Women! - I overheard my wife listening to this podcast the other day and found myself drawn in by Dr. Streicher’s engaging energy and the cascade of information that left me thinking everyone - not just women - but men with menopausal women in their lives - should listen! Surprisingly entertaining, this podcast is not only chock full of useful, easy to understand information and expert insight, with every episode I feel like I’m becoming a better, more informed partner.

1. I love your jokes - …. & digestible material that is applicable to real life practice. I am able to take what I learn on CS then actually use it. I also appreciate the continuing education credits. Full package with time we’ll spent on my commute (have to take a break from serial killers / true crime drama sometimes right?)
2. Excellent Podcast - It helped me diagnose pain pre-ulceration of the kissing ulcer kind. I prefer that there would be more scientific presentations from diverse persons who can include narratives of their struggle and fewer presentations about inequity and oppression. I am preparing for a test, so my perspective may be biased towards more test-subject material and away from deep-meaningful societal inequities.
3. Excellent podcast for practicing clinicians - I am a nurse practitioner in a rural clinic. Curbsiders provide a wonderful variety of topics, providing practical evidence-based advice and pearls useful to many aspects of practice. The case studies are relevant to what we face in clinic or hospital. Their sense of humor is fantastic as well and I appreciate the depth of topic coverage.
4. BCPS Study Help - Pharmacist here. This podcast was a great listen while I was studying for my BCPS exam. Perfect blend of entertainment and practical knowledge/clinical pearls that I could listen to in the car, doing the dishes, or mowing the grass. Really appreciate the content this team creates! Thanks!
5. Informative!!! - As a patient, this podcast is extremely helpful to understand medical issues. I have learned so much! It has helped me navigate doctor visits and equips me with great questions to ask my doctors.
I love the case studies and hearing several medical professionals decide the possible treatments. Thank you!!!
6. Excellent podcast - Really informative with very knowledgeable guests. The presentation of medical information is easy to absorb and remember. The conversational style of this podcast is probably the best way to learn and remember new medical information for most people.The hosts keep the conversation lively and interesting. Thankful for their effort in putting out this podcast. Keep up the great work.
7. I want these docs… - As a lively, despite heart and spine issues, yr old patient I listen to almost every issuance. Having been around old tired Docs I am comforted by knowing you young folks will be available to the next gen. Stay fun ..be human ..and have a demanding hobby or life outside work. Cheers.
8. Amazing Content - I am a new Family Medicine PA working in an underserved areas where we also tend to do a lot of IM. This is the podcast I listened to most often on my commute to work. I like the humor, the guests who breakdown things so well, the questions the hosts ask, the topics covered, and just about everything. I am hoping that they will cover NAFLD at some point since it’s so relevant in our everyday practice of medicine. Thanks y’all!!! You rock!!!
9. Specialty Practice, General Knowledge - As a PA who works in a surgical sub specialty I really value the content of these podcasts to help me stay informed on general internal medicine topics. The content is delivered in a way that maintains your attention and you can tell that a lot of time and energy is invested into producing this. I listened to this podcast nearly daily to help me prepare for the PANCE when I was a student making long commutes to rotation sites and I have recommended it to several other health care providers and students! Keep up the great work.
10. A must for all clinicians - Have been listening for a couple years now and it’s one of my favorite podcasts. I work in family practice and many times I will listen at the end of the day when I have a particular patient problem that I can’t figure out and % of the time there is a episode about it. This is a truly invaluable resource plus, !!slap yo mama!! we get NOTES too! I would gladly pay for this as the time and effort you all put into it shows. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
11. Learning that’s entertaining - Just found this podcast while looking for a way to study passively for my IM recert exam. Reminds me of the camaraderie of residency and fellowship. Thanks for putting together such a great show. I can’t wait to binge listen to all the old episodes and feed my brain. Yummy.
12. The Best! - One of my favorites podcasts! Informative! May I suggest les chit-chat and talk slower! I know intelligent people speak faster. I’m in medicine but sometimes I can’t keep up! Love the info! Very useful to laymen. Provides info so people don’t need to waste Dr time! Podcast invaluable!
13. Such a valuable resource! - I am a new Primary Care FNP and I find this podcast to be more valuable than my clinical rotations in school. It provides uninterrupted time and education from specialists in the field with information that is applicable to my daily practice. The podcast and website formats are thorough and well-organized while also entertaining. I feel I hit the jackpot finding such a valuable resource!
14. The BEST Internal Medicine Podcast out there, - Funny, informative, guests who are leaders in their fields. I am a Physical Therapist and every level healthcare professional should find this podcast extremely meaningful and helpful. Go back to show and listen to all of them, it will make you a better, more educated clinician or educator!
15. My favorite medical podcast - I am a FNP working in a charity clinic. I listen to this podcast everyday to and from work. I really enjoy listening, not only is the content excellent from an educational standpoint but the host are entertaining and funny and make the material enjoyable. I have been listening for over a year & My only regret is not finding this podcast sooner!
16. Great information, but… - The guests and the information they provide are great for med students and interns! I usually don’t review shows, and I don’t mind them having fun on the podcast, however, the first minutes is often over the top with extraneous stuff and has become really distracting. There really is no need to discuss politics, there are enough podcasts for that without infiltrating a show about EBM.
17. Life changing - I am sure some will think this review is hyperbole but this podcast truly has been life changing for me. It is long past due for me to review this podcast. The Curbsiders has had such a large impact on my life and I have previously failed to express even the most basic level of gratitude. I started listening years ago and continued weekly since then. This is such an effective and up to date way to learn while also being highly entertaining. Dr. Matthew Frank Watto and Dr. Paul Nelson Willams have contributed more to my medical knowledge than almost any other physician. It’s like having a second residency. With how much time I’ve listened to them over the years, I consider them both my friends. It is one of my life goals to meet the curbsiders team and laugh at some awesome puns together and thank them in person. The knowledge gained has been invaluable. I have listened to all the podcasts, summarized all the show notes into my own personal notes, and learned immensely. I cannot believe this is a free service and would happily pay the for this service to keep it going for my whole career. Compare this to of CME lectures that cost hundreds to thousands of dollars yet still deliver lesser content than the Curbsiders. I love the spinoffs of the Cribsiders and Curbsiders Teach. As a family Med doc I just need a Curbsiders Obstretics and this would be everything I need for my CME. I recommend to all my fellow clinicians and trainees to not just listen to but study this podcast. I would not be the clinician I am today without the Curbsiders. Listen to this podcast, it may just change your life.
18. Excellent, Entertaining, Useful - Thank you for ensuring there are transcripts available to make this podcast accessible to those of us who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Thank you for this podcast and for hosting guests who are so thoughtful in the way they work through cases while sharing clinical pearls from their own practice and research. This is an ideal podcast for students and residents to stay a few steps ahead in contextualizing our understanding and approach to patient care.

1. So much GOLD!! - Thoroughly enjoyed Take Ownership of Your Life with Jen Gottlieb. There was so much value, so much GOLD!! I love Dr. Gabrielle’s questions and insights - she brings so much to the conversation in such a natural, engaging way. I’ve heard Jen speak several times before and Dr. Gabrielle did an incredible job bringing out Jen’s best mindset tips and action steps to get you where you are meant to be. It was truly inspiring! Our mindset, belief and actions are everything! If you want to do big things in your life and you’re holding back like I am, LISTEN TO THIS!! I always need the reminders and encouragement, so thank you so much for this podcast!! I’ll be sure to keep listening!
2. Everyone needs this Podcast in their life!! - Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is hands down one of the BEST physicians and fitness professions that offers advice that is evidence based not just opinionated. I have learned so much her podcast and continue to better myself because of her. EVERYONE need Dr. Lyons in their life!
3. Five stars - Dr Gabrielle Lyon is a phenomenal asset to all the savages of this world. Her expertise and the expertise of the guests she interviews on the podcast is truly beneficial in my life and my practice as a RN. Listening to the information that she shares helps me better understand my own health as well as implement small changes to my practices as I care for my patients. Myself, my family, and my patients are all gaining from Dr G and her concept of muscle centric medicine. I will continue to support this concept and look forward to sharing more information with other professionals that work along side me.
4. My new favorite podcast! - Loving this podcast from Dr. Lyon. Such great, approachable content for those interested in health and fitness. Dr. Lyon and the help of her guests dig into the research behind all the health topics we hear about in mainstream media and clear up any confusion or debunking thats needed.
5. Muscle!! - I absolutely love Dr. Lyons method and her style when it comes to nutrition and healing. I am a provider myself and I am constantly learning from what she shares and talks about. The knowledge she providers her patients, audience and other providers is of high value. My favorite topics are on protein, muscle building and particularly peptides :)!
6. Good topics but not great interviewer - The interviewer has some good topics but really a nurse as an aesthetic expert? She should know credentials better as a doctor herself. I’d appreciate insight from a more credible source like a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. She also has an abrupt interview style that is more about her sharing all of her knowledge without highlighting her guests with a lot of impatient interruptions. I like Dr. Lynn’s work and was hoping for more.
7. Misleading titles - I have been following for some time but recently listened to podcast titled why plastic surgery is on the rise. There was zero discussion about this. It was basically a review of the popular types of procedures being performed and a long commercial for the surgeon being interviewed. Not what was advertised. Gabrielle needs to work on her interview skills as well.
8. So informative, but… - Working in the health field (Cardiology RN) I definitely appreciate the breaking down of the process of traditional medical care and the support & validation for the emerging field of truly preventative and wholistic health care.
my only minor complaint would be that it seems like Dr Lyon interrupts her guests at inopportune times :/ I feel like she gets excited to ask a question but the guest hasn’t fully finished their answer. That’s all, I Love all the episodes Dr Lyon, thanks for all your hard work
9. Needs a better interview technique - I’m listening to the first episode, and I am intrigued by the topic at hand, but I can’t get over the interviewer and how she interrupts the interviewee while she’s telling a story. The interviewer says “mhm” after every sentence, and it is very distracting.
10. Kettlebells - Dr. Lyon is a brilliant doctor and advocate for muscle health. We truly enjoyed being on the show to share our message. Dr. Lyon is a pioneer in her field and we couldn’t be more grateful to share our message with an aligned purpose in mind. We hope we touched many lives and appreciate Dr. Lyons knowledge and ability share our message!
11. Big Fan - Dr. Lyon’s podcast has become the podcast i look forward the most to listening to. When I open the podcast app this show is the first place I look for new episodes. She touches on a vast variety of topics all which I find interesting. She also gets the leading professionals on the topic to come speak. Her show is honest and does a great job providing information in a non-bias way.
12. Another shill - Just what we need. Hyperbaric oxygen usually requires daily treatment for at least five days and several a week thereafter for a total of - treatments risking, per Johns Hopkins Medical Center: Lung damage. Fluid buildup or bursting (rupture) of the middle ear. Sinus damage. Changes in vision, causing nearsightedness, or myopia. Oxygen poisoning, which can cause lung failure, fluid in the lungs, or seizures.( Came by to give her one more chance and boom! Quantum medicine pseudoscience mumbo jumbo.

1. NC-BC from Collective !! - I am so pumped for this inspiring podcast with Heather and Peter!

Grateful for these two beautiful humans that have put fire and drive behind this movement that WILL change healthcare! HECK YEAH!!!
2. Graduate of Nurse Coach Collective and NC-BC - In I had plans to go back to school to become an FNP but then The Nurse Coach Collective was introduced to me by a co worker of mine at the time. She told me this was something she thought would be a great fit for me and highly encouraged me to do it. She sent me the link for Heather and Peter’s program and after learning about what Nurse Coaching was I immediately booked an enrollment call. I became board certified in April of and launched my private nurse coaching practice within that same year. Their program is hands down amazing and life changing. I will be forever grateful that someone pushed me into this specialty. I am so honored to be at the forefront of this empowering movement. The best is yet to come!

Heather and Peter have created an amazing program so we can get truly back to why we came into nursing… To truly help our patients with long term results. I’m super excited to keep listening to this podcast to spring my private nurse coaching practice Forward. Thanks for this Heather and Peter! I also love that we get to hang out with you in a more relaxed setting ;)
The Nocturnists is an award-winning, independent medical storytelling podcast, hosted by Emily Silverman, MD. We share stories that aim to humanize the practice of medicine, support clinician wellbeing, and transform the healthcare system. Each episode brings the humanity of healthcare workers to the fore, from stories told at The Nocturnists live shows, to raw audio diary recordings in our special documentary series, to insightful conversations with authors and filmmakers whose work intersects ...
Release date: 2023-03-23
1. We are together - Frequently shows and podcasts on medicine are touching, wonderful and sometimes heart-breaking. The Nocturnist does this profoundly well and shows us the best parts of humanity. But for those of us in healthcare, what is particularly powerful about the Nocturnist is how it illuminates the challenges that we as healthcare providers struggle with. Hearing these stories feels good because it reminds me “I am not alone”.
2. One of my absolute favorite podcasts! - I’ve been listening to the podcast since season one, prior to my starting PA school. Now as a new grad about to begin my career, I plan to carry all of the invaluable lessons/stories I’ve learned from The Nocturnist with me into every patient encounter. I often go back and re-listen to my favorite episodes as they remind me of the big reasons why I pursued this lifelong journey of being a medical provider. I recommend this show to all of my fellow PAs whenever I get the chance!
3. The perfect creative outlet! - I am a full-time RN and worked bedside through Covid. I needed a creative outlet for myself that was completely unrelated to healthcare. I grew up in LA and loved acting. I currently live in TN and decided to pursue voiceacting. I now do it part time and it has been so therapeutic to tap into my creative side. I came across this podcast about a year ago and it is my favorite one to listen to by far. I was so excited to find a company with similar values. Medicine is both and art and a science! Thank you for sharing your many stories!
4. What a community web creator! - Really loving and respecting this podcast. Especially in a period of time when our healthcare workers are being put to the test and often abused by the greater population, politicians, and the media, these stories help create a web of compassion and community — we hear the overlap of our experiences, and can more deeply appreciate their investment in healthcare and healing. Thank you all for sharing your stories and offering such beautiful perspectives of your lives and desires!
5. Burnout mixtape - Every physician has a screenplay with their “war stories” in a tightly guarded drawer. It’s rare that we get the chance to eavesdrop on the table read, but we do with this podcast. A few years in, The Nocturnists is coming into its own as a reader’s theatre for docs who have no time to read but spend lots of time worried no one’s thinking what they’re thinking. Worth it to hear the voice cracks, yells, and tears without outside interference. Has an amateur’s rawness and eagerness to please but is not amateurish (storylines edited and curated thoughtfully). I rank out of rather than to motivate listeners to earn that th star and make these stories a regional organizing tool for systems reform.
6. Amazing Podcast - Really LOVE this podcast. The stories are so intimate and insightful. Enjoy the narratives as well as the discussions afterwards. The podcast provides a space for reflection and community that is so needed in medicine. By doing so, it counters burnout and perhaps -by promoting physician self-awareness - it can improve ‘doctoring.’ Moreover, by humanizing doctors it offers insights to patients with the potential for improving doctor-patient relationships.
7. This was my binge during the pandemic - Everyone has something they craved during quarantine and for me it was this podcast. Not only did I get the opportunity to contribute my stories but I also heard from people like me in clinic, industry, and the Bay Area tell their story in medicine. I look forward to the next season and for more projects from Ashley and Dr. Manning and the Nocturnists team.
8. The Nocturnists is a Medical Podcast For Every Body - I’m a medical student, and this podcast is a guiding star to me. Give your wizened raisin of a heart the reviving gift of this listen! These stories are the true moments from lives of doctors, medical professionals, and the lives they intersect with— there’s a thrum of urgency about mortality and what happens when life is your work under every narrative here. The Black Voices in Healthcare series is the most wonderful, difficult, joyful, searing series yet! Highly recommended.
9. Incredibly well done - I love this podcast and look forward to its new episodes weekly. They’ve done a fantastic job with the pandemic episodes - very real and raw. And as a medical student, listening to all the other seasons/episodes has been inspiring and really given me something to look forward to as well as help me become more mentally prepared (as much as possible, anyway). It’s been comforting to hear the human side of medicine from the people we consider the heroes, and realize that they too go through their fair share of self-doubt, second guessing, and challenges. Thank you for creating this podcast, I truly can’t recommend it enough!
10. Listening to epicenter - Just found this podcast while searching through browse.
I’ve been taken to a place deep within. These hotlines into this podcast tell what only those who are on the front can adequately report. I pray for all your safety and for continued courage while you battle for our protection. These are not just stories. What I hear conveys souls tortured with fear while taking risks few would or could. There’s still the Hum of a busy self in their voices. I can thank them and much more—-wanting to hug them and tell them we will get through this. Every thing will be ok. That’s never enough but know we are filling our days with prayers for them and those they touch. They make great sacrifices. God Bless.
11. Listen and learn! - Please listen to this amazing podcast especially during this time of COVID . You think you know but you have no idea how much our healthcare workers are going through. Once you listen to the first episode of diaries your mind will be blowb. FFS the best way to support them is not clapping but staying home!
12. Helps me deeply reflect - Every episode provides me with new material to reflect on and relate to. I don’t always agree with the author’s perspectives or thoughts but that’s a great aspect of listening because the podcast has incited reflection and review. Overall, I think this is helping me become a better physician and person. This podcast has truly helped me cope during residency (my own “wellness” strategy!).
13. Heartening for Patients - I have struggled with the power that doctors have over me and my loved ones in times of illness, and this shows opens up the minds and hearts of doctors and lets me recognize their struggles as well. I find myself wishing for a doctor as compassionate and thoughtful as the doctors who tell their stories here. Plus, it’s just great story telling.
14. Love love love this insightful podcast - As an incoming M, I’ve been exploring different books and podcasts to grow more familiar with what it truly means to be a physician. This podcast has brought up so many excellent thinking points. It’s emotional, respectful, and very entertaining. I’m so excited for this next season!!!
15. Amazing, eye-opening, a window into the reality of patient care. - As an aspiring doctor, these stories allow me to experience the perspectives of physicians and patients as well as the emotions that both go through on a daily basis. The stories are so candid and the questionnaire following allows the listener to get to know the physician and understand the story better. The length of the podcast, the transitions within, and the content is great. This is my new favorite podcast.
16. Family - I love this show. It helps me put a lot of my thoughts into words. Additionally it helps me convey these things to my family. Often they asked about my day and cause I feel I can’t explain I say “good”. But like in the episode where her pediatric patient overdoses I was able to relay this fear to my father, the fear of not knowing what will happen when people leave the hospital. Thank you for what you do
17. Great for residents - It is refreshing to hear these physicians (and other health care professionals) tell their stories that so frequently ring true to my experience. How many times have I finished a shift thus far this past year struggling with the medical record and getting the checklist done and thought to myself like SEp I'm missing it! Dr. Silverman isn't afraid to ask hard questions and the dialogue that follows is so rich.
18. Wonderful stories and discussions - This podcast is thoughtfully curated and very entertaining. Not just stories of patient care, it also includes discussions of real life issues that can affect everyone in health care. Not all of the storytellers are doctors, but all do work in the health profession. It shows a human side of medicine. I can't recommend this enough for anyone who has ever had an interaction in health care (yes, pretty much everyone reading this review).
Additionally, it should be required listening for anyone entering or thinking of entering health care as a career.
If you aren't lucky enough to make it to their live shows, download this podcast!
A podcast about health, science, nutrition, aging, and fitness.
Release date: 2023-02-28
1. Good— but biased - As a medical professional, I have a hard time with Podcasts like this because it’s really difficult for the listener to know what biases the host holds. In this case, I especially noticed that Dr. Patrick is very poorly informed about weight management and obesity. On a recent episode, she confessed to using the words, overweight and obese interchangeably! Just shows her woeful lack of education on this topic. There are people in the health research community today who can address the nuances of weight, lifestyle, diet, and exercise. Higher weights can be associated with poor health outcomes, but it’s much more complicated than fat bad every time. I wish Dr. Patrick would host one of a guest whose research on this topic is up to date, instead of contributing to weight-shaming so regularly. Personally I’m not overweight, but I deal with patients who are and it makes me sad to listen to this anymore.
2. Life changing information - This is one of my ‘go to’ podcasts. The information presented is thoroughly researched and explained on a high level (science and MD talk) while also being explained and delivered to the novice so that it resonates. You can feel the intelligence and passion oozing through the sound waves of each episode. I’ve made valuable changes in my life because of what I learn while listening. Thank you!
3. So glad I found this show! - Rhonda and her incredibly knowledgeable guests offer excellent information around the latest science on all things health and exercise. She is intelligent, thoughtful, and easy to understand. Thanks so much for putting out such a spectacular show, Rhonda - keep up the great work!
4. A fantastic LONGEVITY, Healthy Living podcast, - A must Podcast to have in your rotation if longevity and healthy living are important to you. Always research based and constantly interviewing the top researchers and/or clinicians in their fields. Rhonda Patrick’s energy is infectious and adds to the listening experience.
5. Meh - I loved her on Joe Rogan’s podcast because he could facilitate/navigate the conversation for the listeners who are not academic, to put a nice bow on what she was saying. She does not help break down what her guest speakers are saying on more involved topics so that a lay person can better understand. Or maybe I’m just dumb. Lol.
6. Credibility - The Covid- episode is not going to age well. What was advertised to be an open minded and non-biased look at Covid and treatments, is anything but a promotional episode for the MRNA treatments. There is so much rambling to try and justify the safety of the vaccines and downplay other treatments that could reduce hospitalizations. If HCQ and Ivermectin (proved safe over decades) had not been demonized early in the pandemic we would have reduced deaths by as much as %. Instead only the vaccines have been pushed. What about fitness, nutrition, reducing comorbidities, natural immunity of those that have recovered, and herd immunity?
So professionals that have participated in that demonizing narrative have serious credibility issues. This episode cherry picks studies that promote the vaccines only…not really open minded and fair balanced. Using the slice of cheese analogy, your episode encourages people to only rely on the vaccine slice of cheese. I think you have a political bias and you don’t even realize it. That’s not good medicine.
7. Progressive Science and Spirit - You are clearly a facts-based awesome fountain of knowledge and I respect all of your work - I believe the world requires scientists like you along with spiritualists like the Deepak’s of the world to truly achieve the ultimate state of earth-ship nirvana that will take us to the next level. I have only great things to say about you. Blessings to you and your incredible work!!!
8. FACTS! - I love that Dr. Rhonda is so ethical! She is NEVER willing to make a claim she can not back up. As a microbiologist myself, it has been EXTREMELY frustrating seeing everyone think they understand scientific research, make harsh claims and bizarre speculations (with non-ethical sources or zero evidence to support these claims), and worst of all attack other people because they don’t understand or refuse to understand! Reading the comments was just a slice of how ignorant and nasty people really are!
Thank you for sharing such an elaborate podcast! I can’t express this enough! It’s long overdue that the right people started talking to the public about this information little do people realize we would not have the population we have with out vaccinations uhhh!
9. EXCELLENT - Thank you for all the excellent work you and your guests produce. I am not on any social media, so I loved your episodes on COVID and the myths. I cannot believe the negative comments I read, and I just read a few. Your thoughtful, unbiased, and thorough explanations helped me be more understanding to people that fear the vaccine. I can see how data can be misused or misunderstood. I avoid prescription drugs whenever possible due to several severe and permanent side effects from previous medications. However I got the vaccine even though I knew with my history and chemical sensitivities I would be more susceptible to serious side effects. Vaccines are taken for the larger community, and this virus has its own set of serious crap. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR SUCH GREAT, INTELLECTUAL, AND HEARTFELT WORK. I will definitely share the COVID episodes and believe they will shed light in these troubled and divisive times.
10. Love Rhonda Patrick - I really do enjoy and take in Dr. Rhonda Patrick’s info and content both on here and the JRE. But this latest episode on vaccines is pretty confusing. She claims that vaccines are so safe, and she almost blows off every death that’s come from the vaccine saying the reporting is wrong and is coronation not causing. And Yet she doesn’t eat sugar because it could potentially could cause issues in years but then this covid vaccine has been out less than a year and she is claiming it’s .% safe. How does she know?… has there been years on research on this? Mass amounts of a new mRNA vaccine given to billions of people. No there hasn’t…. If I eat sugar for a year it’s going to be safe but down the road it’s going to cause all sorts or issues and possibly be the reason of death. But ya know these vaccines that have been out for seconds and haven’t even see hardly any long term studies but Rhonda claims are safe. Terrible advice and totally a political issue for Rhonda. If that wasn’t a political opinion podcast then she wouldn’t have talked about it being a political issue at the beginning of the covid vaccine podcast. I wish scientists would actually be honest and let us know the truth and the facts. But also that there hasn’t been long term studies and you should go about it with your own risk and look at all options. That is not what was said in the episode.
11. Pharma shill - Used to like you but you are clearly now a robot in the machine. Nothing is clear cut and so if you can not acknowledge any points by the other side you are clearly not unbiased. No side is % right so when you suggest that a side is % wrong you are tipping your hand as a shill. It was Tim Ferriss that first turned me on to you but fair or not I now question his judgement.
12. Used to Love This Podcast - Dr. Rhonda Patrick has been great in many areas of health. However, when it comes to COVID, she has so obviously dropped the ball. I can’t figure out is she truly isn’t understanding the real data or if she is ignoring it to toe the party line but, either way, I can no longer trust her health analyses and judgements. There are many of other great doctors and phds that provide similar information while also being truthful about COVID and the vaccines and I will listen to them instead.
13. Lost Credibility - Found Rhonda to be very credible, but after her last JRE interview her new stance on the current illness spreading across the globe makes her lose all credibility. Wont find me supporting her anymore, especially when she was trying to dispel misinformation but only spewed misinformation herself.
14. Rational, Reliable, essential information - I found out about Dr Rhonda Patrick thanks to the JRE, I always love listening to her content, she like Dr Andrew Weil for me, is one of a handful of people who views and approaches health the way I thought all medical doctors should. She’s always putting out incredible content with the best resources. Every time I think of anything related to health I first search what information & resources Dr Rhonda Patrick has related to the subject and I’m never disappointed. She’s incredibly thorough, and extremely intelligent in her approach to researching and sharing information.
15. This Podcast Might Help Save Your Life - Dr. Rhonda Patrick is fulfilling an important need in her “Found My Fitness” podcast that has been neglected by contemporary society—translating the complex research of medical expertise into language that is understandable to the general public. The consequences of this neglect are devastating. The common person is inundated with so much conflicting information that they find themselves in a state of perpetual confusion. The typical reaction to complexity is resignation or opportunism—give up or cherrypick those pieces of information that justify preexisting preferences. Dr. Patrick rolls us a ball of twine out of this precarious labyrinth Western Medicine has in general taken a fatalistic approach to the ailments that are the consequence of its emotionally stressful, artificially nourished, sedentary lifestyle. The result is a massively expensive and elaborate medical infrastructure designed to mitigate and manage the effects of chronic disease. What is so refreshing about Dr. Patrick’s approach to medicine is her focus on addressing the causes, the “onset before the onset” of chronic diseases. In her podcast she lucidly outlines the science of well-being, one topic at at time, to demonstrate how each behavior and lifestyle factor contributes to our health and well-being. Whether sleep, nutrition, exercise, or various non-pharmacological interventions such as sauna, cold therapy, or fasting, Dr. Patrick distills an exhaustive body of peer-reviewed research to a set of fundamental truths for the listener to consider applying in their own lives. Perhaps most impressively, Dr. Patrick has responded to the challenge of the COVID- crisis by providing her listeners with guidance for strengthening their immune systems and avoiding chronic disease caused by COVID. Dr. Patrick’s interview with Dr. Roger Seheult on proactive measures one can take to bolster one’s immune system in the fight against COVID are particularly salient. Dr. Patrick has long been advocating for the importance of Vitamin D supplementation, and research into the importance of Vitamin D in the prevention and mitigation of COVID finds her message vindicated more strongly than ever.
16. Found My Fitness is amazing! - I have been listening to Dr Rhonda Patrick for a few years. I have used information to help myself, family, and friends. She always backs up her information with studies and data and makes it clear when she is stating something is a hypothesis of hers. She is a wealth of knowledge! Would % advise everyone listen to her if you want to take your own health and happiness into your own hands!
17. Please don’t delete episodes - It seems like some of the interviews have gotten deleted, which is a real bummer because I have wanted to go back and re-listen to some and also share them. It looks like you have more available on YouTube, but I really love the convenience of the podcast format. I also love all of the interview episodes and really appreciate you finding and recruiting scientists to be on your show! As a fellow research scientist, it’s nice to be able to hear about other areas of research in a scientifically sound and intellectual way.
18. My go to source - Dr. Patrick is my go to source for nutritional biochemistry information and reviews of the the latest and emerging research. She is smart but speaks in a way that is easier to understand. As a trained Dietitian, it is refreshing to stay abreast of the evidence based research and emerging trends in anti-aging.

1. Small time investment - Small time investment for such terrific information that you’re not going to get anywhere else. I would love to know how to stop taking Ambien and get a good nights sleep. i’ve been taking it for a long time but I’m just finding out about the terrible effects of it. I would like to know what Dr. Walker would suggest. and how do you know if you’re really sleeping well? Sometimes I lie in bed and I have these dreams but I don’t know if they’re thoughts or am I having a dream. How can you tell the difference?
2. Such helpful info here!! - This is really a great podcast. The information is given in small enough bites that I have time to listen to the entirety, and he is just now getting into some information that is helping me better understand the sleep info that I get from my garmin watch ( not that this info is particularly correct, but it’s something to go on) Thank you Matt for your clear concise and important sleep information, and I also love your calm kind thoughtful delivery.
3. The best sleep podcast I have listened to - This is a Fantastic podcast! I have attended countless lectures on sleep and treated hundreds of patients with sleep disorders, this podcast is by far and away the most complete and easy to understand of all time. Each episode is limited to - minutes and confined to a single sub topic. Anyone with or without a sleep problem will find each episode fascinating and motivating information and can start to make changes in their life to really make a difference. I enthusiastically recommend the Matt Walker Podcast.

4. Fabulous!! - Like many other reviewers of this podcast, my introduction to Dr. Matt Walker was via his extraordinarily interesting book “Why We Sleep.” I recently found his podcast and it is fabulous! The podcasts are brief, usually around minutes each and are very informative and engaging. Dr. Walker’s passion for the topic of sleep is infectious. I also love his humorous comments. His twitter account is a must follow too.
5. My insomnia is going to hate you - As a long time to suffer with insomnia, finding good and trustworthy sources on ways to deal with it can be a challenge. He may not be a doctor, but he is a scientist and that is what I am more interested in because he really knows about your subject! This is very easy to listen to and I love the very short shows because it makes it possible to listen to it even when you don’t have much time. There’s lots of good solid information without it being an inaccessible for non-scientific people.
6. Informative and accessible - Thank you for this excellent content and for the incredibly accessible way I which you present it. Good sleep is something I took for granted when I was younger, and something that has grown increasingly difficult to attain as I get older. I’ve found your research incredibly useful. I apologize if you’ve covered these in your later episodes (still listening!) but I hope you might be able to discuss the effects of other potential sleep enhancers such as meditation and yoga nidra, as well as those of pharmaceutical options such as those that include atypical benzodiazepines (z-drugs), trazodone and orexin receptor antagonists. Many thanks.
7. Very insightful and well-researched recommendations, presented in an accessible manner - This podcast provides extremely useful and fascinating information about the value of and recommendations for maximizing sleep. Sleep is examined from a variety of angles and in relation to a number of biological and environmental factors. I also find it extremely helpful that most of the podcast episodes are minutes or less.
8. AMAZING!!!!!!!! - You are amazing…your personality is Amazing, your book is amazing and I am just grateful for everything you are sharing. You have a simple (and very kind) way of sharing the science and making things so understandable for those of us who love to dig deep and understand everything…yet maybe aren’t scientists or drs. I find myself rewinding and replaying each short episode over and over (so my mind can retain…ha!) and I never wanted to stop reading your book and listening. It all makes SO much sense to me — as just like water — I understand why truly restful and full sleep is vital to every cell and function in my/our/humanities being. You are the BEST! Thank you for sharing everything so ‘freely’. I am grateful.
9. Wish I’d found this sooner. - Dr Walker, where have you been all my life? I have suffered from many sleep issues since I was a child - sleep paralysis, insomnia, lucid dreams, false awakenings. I’ve thankfully gone out of the sleep paralysis. I’m only in episode but hope you cover sleep paralysis, sleep walking, and false awakenings. I’d really love to understand these better any why I might’ve experienced them so regularly for so much of my life. And PS. LOVE your personality. No need to apologize.
10. An inspiration for future scientists - Dr. Walker’s contagious passion for sleep science and educating others has been a major influence on my research career and an inspiration for pursuing my PhD. When I was forced to read his book years ago, I had no idea the impact it would have on my future. He breaks down complex concepts into digestible pieces with relevant applications that makes learning easy for everyone. Sleep was the first topic I came across during college that I WANTED to learn about, and his book ‘Why We Sleep’ jump started that interest. It has been the only book that I’ve ever been forced to start reading, and have finished by choice. Years later, I share his same excitement for science; I’ll talk about sleep to anyone and everyone that will listen, repeatedly incorporate sleep into journal club discussions, and intend to pursue a career that allows me to educate people the way he does. After years of reading the published literature, there’s still plenty that I learn from each of his podcast episodes. Thank you, Dr. Walker, for sharing your passion for science with others and for inspiring me to pursue a career in research.
11. This is such important and practical information - Dr. Matt Walker is supremely ‘easy’ to learn from, whether as the author of the wonderfully readable book, ‘Why We Sleep,’ TED Talks speaker, guest interviewee or podcaster. He is enormously skilled at making sleep science ‘accessible’ to all of us. He's at once impressively humble while at the same time supremely knowledgeble about sleep research findings.
12. Brings awareness to the importance of sleep - I first heard about Matt Walker when Joe Rogan said it was the most interesting podcast he’d ever hosted. Since then I’ve been ferociously devouring Matt’s content and have found it remarkably useful and insightful. I appreciate how he simplifies complex ideas and breaks them down into actionable steps. Well done!
13. Thank you - I read the book Why We Sleep. I ignored your recommendation to take sleep seriously my words.) I regret that. The feeling with malaise, getting colds often, and more I made a decision that a full night sleep
is as vital as drinking water. I’m thankful for the scientific research you are communicating to us.
14. A fair alternative to the book “Why We Sleep” - There’s no debate that Matt Walker’s book, “Why We Sleep”, is the best resource on the everything sleep related: importance of sleep, sleep optimization, etc… Second to his book, are discussions where Matt Walker is interviewed at length on other podcasts. This podcast is an easy-to-consume introduction if you haven’t read the book or listened to his conversations on other podcasts, but I personally find it a bit too slow, repetitive, and do no enjoy the format of the - minute episodes.
15. Enthusiastic and educational - This short-style podcast is educational, based in science, communicated so all can understand easily whether their background is in the sciences or not, and filled with Dr. Walker's unabashed enthusiasm for learning and teaching. I love the short and to-the-point episodes. They are just right for listening to when you have a spare moment, and the information sticks well. His enthusiasm is contagious and a wonderful mood booster during the long days of the pandemic. Hopefully, these will be continued for many more episodes to come--and hint, hint, maybe will accompany a second book in the future (no pressure!) with more information on advances in sleep science. Highly recommended :) Updating //: Love the Sleep Is Bloody Remarkable episode and hope for more in this style to come in the near future! Updating //: Really enjoying this series and putting the knowledge to use. Having taught at the college level, I understand how much time and effort goes into producing an excellent lecture and so thank you so much Dr. Walker for all the heart, soul, and enthusiasm you put into this podcast :)
16. Sleep is therapy!!!! - I found out about Dr. Matt Walker through Sam Harris’ Waking Up app, and the episodes on The Kingdom of Sleep! I listened to them all and am so impressed with his level of knowledge and ways of explaining things to his audience. Sleep is so critical to our mental health and I would love to see more talk about the benefits of sleep in the mainstream. Amazing work, Dr. Walker!!! I love what you’re doing and I love your personality and authenticity shining through in your speaking. Malee Van Wie
17. love the sleep series--more please - I think you only touched the surface of what we know. I would appreciate a deeper dive into sleep and dreams since you are one of the foremost experts. I would enjoy a conversation with another expert to delve into more about why we sleep and dream and what happens when we are deprived of them. I really enjoyed the series so far. If I can think of specific questions I had come up while listening that you didn't explain or explain enough, I'll message you on Instagram. Thank you.
18. Matt Walker Never Disappoints - I have been following Dr. Walker and his research for years. As always, his way of breaking down complicated neurological/scientific data is brilliant! He is clear about methodology and how and what the data suggests in our every day lives! I use the information I learn from him when working with people from years old to years old.
