This is the podcast for HealthNewsReview.org, a website that helps people become smarter health care consumers by helping them sharpen their critical analysis of claims about health care interventions. The 1st 25 episodes were hosted by our Publisher, veteran health care journalist Gary Schwitzer. Now multimedia producer Michael Joyce brings you the stories. The aim is to improve the public dialogue about health care. You'll hear stories and interviews with people who are passionate about helping people get accurate, balanced, complete health care information so that they can make better decisions. It's a rubber-meets-the-road health care reform initiative. All are archived on HealthNewsReview.org at http://www.healthnewsreview.org/toolkit/health-news-watchdog-podcasts/.
