Calls to Health Podcast
About This Show
Show Info: The distortion of health research in the media is a real problem and I believe we can do something about it. The media assumes we are too stupid and not interested in the real facts and figures, but I disagree. In each episode of this podcast we will focus on a specific health news story and together, we will reemerge with a deeper understanding of why and how the research gets distorted and how to go about digging deeper if one is to actually find out more. Ultimately, as more informed citizens we can demand higher quality of health news, and then hopefully the media will reconsider their assumption that we are all stupid and don’t actually care. What can you do? When you see an article with “ a new study shows” or "research shows" in the title, tweet it at me @callstohealth or use the Contact page, and I promise to do my best to follow up on them. Subscribe to the show on your podcasting app and toon in every other week for a new episode. Together, let’s break the cycle of misrepresentation of health research in the media.
