About


Bedside Rounds is a medical podcast by myself (Adam Rodman, @AdamRodmanMD) about fascinating stories in clinical medicine. I started this podcast for a couple of reasons.

  1. I was unable to find an interesting narrative-based medical podcast a la Radiolab or 99% Invisible; and
  2. I have too many great stories to tell about medicine and too few cocktail parties to tell them at (this problem greatly upsets me).
  3. And I guess that by telling great stories, I can explain, maybe just a little bit, how doctors approach medicine, and what this means for the rest of us.

This podcast is purely a labor of love. I don’t make any money off of this, but I do have a ton of fun making it. I started when I was an internal medicine resident, and I’d like to think now that I’m an attending the quality and frequency have both increased considerably. I appreciate any and all feedback, from any of the contact links on the sidebar (though Twitter is my favorite).

And finally, like I say at the end of my podcasts, while I am a real doctor and I don’t just play one on the internet, Bedside Rounds is meant to be purely entertainment and education, and should not be construed as medical advice. If you have any health concerns, please contact your primary care provider.
