Great podcast Tegan. As an ex-shift worker I’d really love to see some serious studies on sleep. The sort of studies that governments and employers have to take notice of. Keep up the good work.

Completely superficial treatment of the subject. Really worthless. Might as well not have bothered. Also Norman’s comment about husbands not bothering their husbands - really trivializing what is a serious concern for many relationships

Some episodes are fascinating but I mainly use it to sleep

I’ve been listening to the Health Report for years, but like all ABC content I’m giving it up. Unsubscribed from today. The endless North Korean style far-right Royalist propaganda for slave-wealth billionairess Liz Windsor makes it clear the ABC is just and only an enforcer of official...Read full review »

Support groups like NA & AA are essential but have had to close due to the pandemic. Substance abuse will be a major problem going forward. Fascinating interview - thank you.

As usual a thought provoking report that shows via evidence (although evidence itself suffers from gender bias) that womens health and the way their bodies work and react to treatments can be different and that most treatments are skewed to men because studies are done prominently on men.

Just listened to the gender bias in medical research and treatment. So appalling to hear men have been the guinea pigs in medical trials. I’m glad that women will now will also be guinea pigs. It reminds me of shocking Tuskegee Syphillis trial where black men’s syphilis was left untreated for...Read full review »

Great coverage of the year by experts who are highly talented and at the top of their game as well as being excellent communicators. My sincere thanks to them (and their teams) for their hard work and commitment to public health and thank you Norman for bringing them to us.

Norman has the ability to keep the show on the road and constantly interesting.the health report today 21 dec 2020 is a great international summary of the year. A must hear for those with even the smallest interest in COVID -bruce arroll auckland New Zealand

I love the shows’s format but I just can’t listen anymore because Dr Swan continually interrupts the guest speakers. I can see why he us doing it - to clarify a point for the listeners, but it’s rude.

Congratulations Norman on that great interview with Eric Topol. What a fantastic contribution he is making to medicine!

Used to be brilliant. I feel with the new format it has gone downhill. Too much banter now, not to the point, and the information provided is not of the same depth or substance. The same reason I stopped listening to Coronacast. The banter got in the way of the good quality factual content. I...Read full review »

I thoroughly enjoy your podcast and the clarity you bring to health issues. Listening to you on the way home motivates me to open the laptop again (to do my own research) after playing footie and a full day at work.
Ba5tien via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/17/20
It’s a great shame, especially during current times that you chose Prof Lloyd as your advisory on ME/CFS and rehashed treatments that are so detrimental. He is so out of touch and a virus pandemic like we’re in could lead to so many more who have their lives permanently damaged by this...Read full review »

Dr Norman Swan does an excellent job of clearly communcating everything to do with our anatomy, whether it is funcioning as it should or not. That information can really help to allay fears and make life easier.
Save the Climate via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/25/20
I love Dr Norman Swan’s cheeky and interrogative style and he holds the medical and research communities to account. I think I have this podcast to account for increasing my health literacy and keeping me up to date by translating research and evidence. Thanks!
Banksia Activist via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/22/20
I don’t usually listen to ABC Radio National, so I am grateful this weekly report is available as a podcast. The 30 minute time frame allows material to be presented in some depth, and more than one topic can be addressed. Dr. Swan is an excellent presenter and the material he selects is very...Read full review »

A most informative show, the only one I trust and believe, apart from the show, I don’t think there is a woman over 50who isn’t in love with Dr. Norman Swan
sylvi.bilby via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/30/20
A truly valuable program. Thank you for your excellent service to truth and quality analysis in these challenging times. Trusted sources such as yourselves, the BBC, Guardian and ABC will emerge from this episode as pillars of strength. You are what will hold us together. Thank you.

James Bullen does an excellent job replacing Norman when he’s away. However, the quality of delivery from his guest this week, the ABC science reporter, is questionable.

Unlike every other RN presenter, the host of this one is constantly cutting in and speaking over the guests. Norman is so rude, abrasive and quite arrogant.
