The questions are interesting- but I come to freakonomics for the data behind the pontification. Otherwise I could be listening to my great uncle at dinner.

The content is great. As soon as they start the podcast the titles change lol Example: “Do Kids Cause Divorce” is actually “Do Twins Cause Divorce”. Strange.

Nice to discuss topics but not helpful regarding what to do, how to decipher the data. More chatty than beneficial. Dig deeper, explain clearer, offer solid direction where ethical.

If this review stays up and isn’t cut short, it will be a miracle. How can the information here be trusted when the good doctor buys into the CDC/FDA/WHO/Fauci/Gates narrative of the Covid mRNA "vaccines"? He has ignored the early & ONGOING warnings of globally esteemed experts and...Read full review »
They're killing us via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/23
A research study/paper is often referenced as a basis/core of the conversation (i.e. , #75 What Is Sugar Really Doing to You?) but they don’t provide a direct link or even a citation. The host is an MD and PhD, he’s written enough papers to *know* to cite his references/source. Why wouldn’t it...Read full review »

Really disappointed in this episode. Yes, I think refined sugar is harmful. Yes, I was expecting this to be the discussion. The evidence discussed did NOT support this though. Suggesting a causal relationship when one hasn’t been proven is unethical. Even worse, if there is a causal...Read full review »

I’m a second year med student and really love this show- especially the medical mystery cases. I aspire to reach this level of excellent clinical reasoning skills one day!

I never miss an episode of this show. Bapu always gives facts and stats about the issues that are covered. The best part is that I have yet to see any real bias, except on behalf of the patients that the health care industry is supposed to be doing anyway. Thank you Bapu and the Freakonomics team!
FrankBlack00 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/23
Interesting dialogues and great information.
JBS(PA) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/23
Bapu’s thinking out loud and live analysis episodes are the best! Exposes me to a how-to-think mechanics, which I’ve applied in my profession (SF architecture design) to a great success. Another excellent addition to Freakonomics family!

This podcast has opened my eyes to so many aspect of healthcare I’m curious about. The episodes are well researched, interesting and nice and brief. I’ve worked in healthcare for a long time and always enjoy this podcast!

Excellent show. Very informative and entertaining. Dr Jenu is a great host
semipenguin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/23
Having worked in healthcare management the last 15 years of my career, the intersection of healthcare and economics has always fascinated me. The topics that are presented on this podcast are always interesting, informative and thought provoking. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to...Read full review »

I am always intrigued by the interactions between the medicine, the financial/health insurance aspects of the podcast. The mental health, the challenges of the patients with the hardest medical issues and the financial costs of that are interesting, but showing that we can, as a medical society,...Read full review »

Below is a review from a year or so ago; I’d given up on this show. Recently, they played one on the Freakonomics show (not Freakonomics md), so I listened in. The topic was breast feeding. First they had Emily Oster on (look up her podcast if you like data). Emily is probably left leaning...Read full review »

Social media is not in a good place in today’s world. People need to learn how to do something different.
eps1969 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/22
The show is really interesting ! The host is great. Topics are unique. Looking forward to more!
zoomba9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/22
Effect of mother’s milk on microbiome and development of immune system was not mentioned at all. Importance of human milk oligosaccharides. Missed to talk about the key factor.
Maria ZZ 76 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/22
Soft ball questions and doesn’t get into scientific rigor. Otherwise very political like race in medicine is all they talk about. I really liked the original topics but now I don’t listen anymore. Oh for the record I 100% abortion even third trimester. Abortion is necessary for society. And Covid...Read full review »

Fellow physician here Bapu. I have enjoyed your program a lot, but was very surprised you did not push back at all on Ashish Jha and the problem so many of us have with his Covid messaging. I’m quite sure you are aware of Dr Vinay Prasad’s frustration with Jha - why didn’t you ask about some of...Read full review »

I find the topics interesting and well presented. Keep up the good work!
Former Skype user via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 11/19/22
A friend told me about the show a while ago. I’ve been listening since the start and I have to say the episodes keep getting better and better. The topics are great, host is clearly an expert, and it always makes me think a little differently.
healthnut84 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/30/22
I appreciate the prospectives that are presented concerning the decision making and thought process as it relates to medical malpractice. But, I am disappointed that the producers did not work harder to present both opinions/facts on such a polarizing subject as abortion and how it effects...Read full review »
skim583 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/21/22
Crazy to me that an entire episode on “defensive medicine” is really just a commercial for progressive politics related to abortion. Apparently abortion is the safest procedure out there. -with nary a mention of the other side -the baby. I’d be fine with the position, I’d only it were given...Read full review »

Interesting podcast, but always with a decidedly progressive bias.
browngangbc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/22
I’m a fan of the regular freakanomics podcast. I gave this one a quick try and it was just lacking in substance. I listened to the one regarding FDA Friday releases being detrimental and even deadly. While this was an eye popping news, the podcast could have been completed in 5 minutes. I would...Read full review »

Fully engaging and interesting in a quick bite sized format. Can’t get enough of this podcast.
er5sdfg via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/06/22
Would give this 20 stars if I could! Incredibly informative information, and very informative and easy to understand for someone that is not part of the healthcare community, and cares about personal health. Look forward to listen to this every week!
fit4life-chris via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/03/22
I love this podcast, i learn new things and look smart amongs my family and fiends when I make references to info I learned in this podcast.
dave.tremblay via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/29/22
Just found this podcast and am very impressed. Covered a lot of issues related to rankings-quite informative. Answered a lot of questions for me. Thanks for the podcast.
RKKiddienurse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/22
Thought-provoking topics, excellent guests, and a calm, concise host- couldn’t ask for more in a podcast! Great job.
DC Applegate via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/22
This podcast has episodes ranging from good to essential. Sometimes I’ll hear a trend or some history and wonder how I’ve made it so far in life without knowing about it. For some episodes, I’m left wanting a bit more depth. Maybe that’s because this podcast has the shortest episodes out of its...Read full review »

This podcast makes a stunning contribution to raising the questions we need to discuss about health issues. From research, funding, behaviour, to unintended consequences and perverse incentives- this is an eye-opener.
Ba5tien via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/06/22
It seems the advertised content on many podcasts is nothing more than clickbait. Certainly true for this show. Pairing the medical world and economics would be interesting were it not saturated in political and social bias. Good on the shows that are upfront and fully disclosed about who they are...Read full review »

What a pleasure to listen to a medical professional with such fabulous communication skills. The focus on medicine from an economist’s point of view may sound dry and clinical; it is neither. Clever, thoughtful questions, fast pacing and a master communicator make for a great listen!
ArtG1965 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/22
Thank you for the great insight information about hospitals and doctoring. I truly enjoy this podcast

Wonderful episode, salute

An excellent podcast, always very interesting.
dldnh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/22
Well presented and thought-provoking… Always leaves me with more questions… only so much one can do in a short podcast. Sometimes wish would do a series of episodes on a large topic to dive deeper… See one suggestion below gun violence is a public health crisis in the United States. could you do...Read full review »
Kermination via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/22
Almost every episode provides interesting and thought provoking material, that prompts me to want to learn more about the topic on my own. The one-star reviews seem to be coming from MAGA people who claim bias on everyone and everything that doesn’t bow down to their god.

Episodes are ok, gets a little draggy at times
DkHc4 via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 05/19/22
I’m a nurse, and I love economics. This show exists in the center of the Venn diagram, where medicine and economics meet. Every episode is super interesting. I’m glad I started listening.
MelAndCholera via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/11/22
Love this pod!
owsad1525 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/22
Great content - do wish they would cover medicine and economics in other countries - namely Canada for example. Thanks for the info.
