Summary

A show about the cost of health care that’s more entertaining, empowering, and occasionally useful than enraging, and terrifying and depressing. Reporter Dan Weissmann digs in to show how we got into this crazy mess and how we just might live through it.

Reviews

A brilliantly named show with a simple mission: to get us all talking about the cost of health care. Season two includes an excellent series about how prices got so high in the first place, delving into MRIs, drug prices, insulin, and CPAP machines Ma’ayan Plaut "Best of 2019 So Far" Discover Pods

This show does some seriously good journalism about healthcare in a perfect balance between informative and entertaining. And this particular episode does a better job of explaining pharmacy benefit managers—the biggest, richest, middlemen nobody knows exist—than anything else I've seen on the topic.

The podcast features investigative journalism, but it centers on Weissmann’s actual story, giving An Arm and a Leg the feel of something similar to creative nonfiction. It’s well-reported, but it’s also personal. It’s about a heavy, stress-inducing topic, but it’s also funny and casual. 1) It’s well-researched, showing many different sides and takes on the story, and 2)It sounds incredible.
