PHYSICIANS/POLICY: Another Podcast with Eric Novack

So here’s another podcast recorded at the tail end of last week with me chatting with surgeon, talk radio host and "free-market" advocating surgeon Eric Novack. This one focuses on why health care costs so much and why we can’t stop physicians behaving badly. We discuss evidence-based medicine, managed care, capitation, end of life care, practice variation, and defensive medicine — and it’s still incredibly civilized. Don’t worry — we’ll keep having these talks until we really start laying into each other!

Here’s the MP3 to download (this one’s a little over 30 minutes listening time). Enjoy and please tell me what you think

  1. Hmm…I’ve downloaded it twice and it seems to work. Please keep reporting on whether it works.
    Did anyone download it using a Podcast aggregator

  2. Matthew,
    Excellent piece – continue to explore issues in this format.
    I noticed that my download appeared to stop after twenty minutes or so – just as you were getting to core comment.

  3. I had some problems with the download. It only played for 7 minutes. I’ll try again and see how it goes. Good work on the bit I heard.
