Where does a medical cure come from? 100 years ago, it wasn't uncommon for scientists to test medicines by taking a dose themselves. As medical technologies get cheaper and more accessible, patients and DIY tinkerers are trying something similar—and mainstream medicine is racing to catch up. Prognosis explores the leading edge of medical advances, and asks who gets—or should get—access to them. We look at how innovation happens, when it fails, and what it means to the people with a disease trying to feel better, live longer, or avoid death.

Customer Reviews

A podcast I want to listen to

I want to like this so much - I find the material very interesting, but I'm not sure I can continue. The extreme vocal fry and annoying voice of the reporter just makes this too painful. It's a podcast, people - you have to make it something easy to listen to. Such a shame

Interesting & love the topics, but......

This could be an amazing podcast, but the way the interviewer speaks almost trivializes very serious & potentially life altering information. A (sounds like) 20 year old sorority girl squealing about picking up a frog (omg, they’re so cute, are you sure I won’t hurt it?) just makes it seem like they just hired the first person who interviewed for the job. The way she exaggerates the last syllable of the last word in every sentence is like nails on a chalkboard, and now it’s all I hear. Ugh.

Excellent Intro to Healthcare Issues

This podcast provides excellent overview of the various healthcare issues, with emphasis on economics and innovation. I like it’s focus on history of inventions and the range of experts interviewed.
