As someone “of age” it’s a mess! SC admits not enough vaccine nor providers to distribute. Being a red state, I hope they don’t turn down help from Biden Administration...I think vaccine hesitancy is not the issue, but too much demand & not enough supply.

As a user of hydroxychloraquine it can and has helped for many. We should use all avenues to get through this epidemic instead of only using very expensive drugs. It is too bad you follow the party line.

Dan is a perfect host. He has interesting guests for reasonably deep dives. He probes further when appropriate. Overall he leaves guests more (or newly) informed about critical issues in health policy.

Dan is a great reporter. Imthis is a wonky podcast that those who are interested in healthcare would really enjoy. It talks about policy and politics related to the health industry. Good guests appearances..

Just listened the the Scott Gottlieb interview, extremely articulate intelligent dedicated person. He will be missed. I love the in-depth coverage of issues. The interviews are the best. Conversations that last longer then just sound bites. Don asks pointed questions and his guests have time to...Read full review »

I have learned so much from this podcast. As a health policy student, pulse check has been my most useful tool in keeping up with health policy news. Its also taught me new things and gave me more insider knowledge than i could have gotten from a class! Love dan diamond and love pulse check!

Host has serious dry mouth Sounds really gross and disgusting No thank you, next
TheCompDoctor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/19
My go-to podcast for the latest and greatest health policy news. Fair and equal portrayal of the issues and Dan Diamond miraculously avoids business jargon despite being an ex-consultant. Pairs well with a New England IPA and the daily Politico Pulse newsletter.

The reporters at Politico are the best in the business. It is interesting to hear their panel discussion but my favorite episodes feature, as (the legendary) Susan Glasser put it in her podcast The Global Politico, "news-making conversations about [politics] with those who are helping shape...Read full review »

Have been subscribed for over a year now, and this is just a terrifically done podcast. The range of guests, from health workers to policy ppl to journalists to politicians to activists is remarkable and always keeps the perspective fresh. Huge respect to DD who is a fairly tough interviewer, but...Read full review »

Dan Diamond's interview with Dan Barber would have been better if he at least questioned some of the claims that Barber was making. Without any pushback, it makes it sound like an infomercial for organics, which are not as "wholesome" as the industry would distract you into believing....Read full review »

Love Dan’s passion and approach to changing the American food culture toward a healthier, far more delicious and pleasurable way of living. At the same time it simultaneously integrates more environmentally friendly food production. Terrific!

I love the in-depth healthcare news and the interviews. Dan diamond is a great host. I’ve scoured a lot of healthcare podcasts and this is a good one!
Taylorleekennedy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/18
Fantastic podcast- how about interviewing Rebekah Gee, MD the Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health? She’s overseeing a major paradigm shift in how the state treats hepatitis C. Louisiana is also addressing infant mortality rates and seeing real progress! New York and California better...Read full review »

This is very educational! Discussions take time and drill deep into subjects with lots of follow up questions. Significantly contributes to an informed mind.

Always covering the most current topics in health and healthcare and features fantastic guests to speak to current issues. Well worth a listen.

As someone interested in the healthcare industry, I find a lot of food for thought from this podcast. Dan Diamond brings in very interesting guests and is himself very knowledgeable. I would appreciate more episodes like the one with Slavitt and Galespie where two experts with differing views...Read full review »

If you’re interested in health care and health policy, Politico PulseCheck is simply indispensable. It’s the Classic Coke of health podcasts. Dan Diamond is a fantastic, fair-minded host. The guests he books are often titans in the industry. He asks excellent questions and also engages with his...Read full review »

Dan Diamond is a talented interviewer with a great voice (in every way). I just learned about Pulse Check and will definitely be listening on a regular basis.
willardjfilmore via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/18
Absolutely love this podcast! As someone who is rather new in the field of health policy, I enjoy getting to hear about other topics I don’t currently deal with and the segments about how these individuals started on their career path. I’m not sure if you have done an episode about gun violence...Read full review »

Dan- I am an avid listener Your coverage is broad, smart and always interesting. It ought one of the best was with Jonathan Bush (and of course Atul Gawande). Have you every interview Judy Faulkner of Epic? Would be fascinating. Thanks for your efforts! Keep it up.

I couldn’t stop listening to Dan’s interview with John Carreyrou. Such a good story with great journalists.
KD AV via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/18
Terrific interview with Carreyou. Valuable background and intrigue. More book authors? Health books of course.

Dan Diamond's Pulse Check is essential listening for anyone who wants a deeper dive into the most salient, current issues in health care and health policy.Read full review »

Dan has an earnest voice that doesn’t hold back when he interviews a smoke blower. Or vape blower for that matter. I’d like to hear more from officials at CMS and ONC who are making policy that impacts all of us in healthcare and the public. There are great bits of info in the Morning eHealth...Read full review »

Dan’s podcast is a must-listen not just for health care policy aficionados, but also for folks in biopharma, etc. (like me) who are trying to navigate the evolving landscape. His guests are consistently engaging and informed, and Dan is a first-rate interviewer who elicits thoughtful and...Read full review »

I am DONE with Dan Diamond and will seriously question the journalistic validity of any Politico publication going forward now that Pulse Check has acted as a platform to promote Marjorie Dannenfelser’s frighteningly warped views of women, women’s civil and human rights.

Best healthcare podcast out there. I work for a large payer and its so helpful to have this, helps me stay abreast of whats going on. I wish there was more on the private sector.

Great Podcast! Highly recommend for anyone interested in health policy. Would love to see Seema Verma on the pod!
Jimmeh jealousy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/18
The recent podcast on freedom of religion and the unfolding cost of the ACA is absolutely refreshing in its bluntness. No sugar coating. Give it to us straight, no chaser.
AZ-CPA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/18
I have to say that before listening to D.Diamond and the crew, I had zero to little interest in health care news. But with the battle over the ACA the past year, I had the good fortune of stumbling onto this podcast and it has been a must listen ever since. If you are interested in health care...Read full review »

Really great healthcare reporting and interviews. I never miss a new episode!
v_sub via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/18
I look forward to this podcast each week. The interviews bring me perspectives from government, business, nonprofit, academia, and media. The news roundups help me keep up with lesser known/covered but still important stories each week.

Reassuring voice addressing challenging topics

Intelligent discussions on current healthcare policies that are non-partisan and succeed at getting to the truth.
NYC Slayer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/17
I love this podcast with one caveat, which is that it struck me recently that Dan Diamond's tone and approach are reminiscent of Little Finger from "Game of Thrones" and now I can't stop thinking about it. Will revise to 5 stars if the host can switch to emulating a different GoT...Read full review »
