A Genuinely Messed Up Situation with An Arm And a Leg Podcast

I’m really excited to have on reporter Dan Weissman to talk about his freshly-launched show, An Arm And a Leg podcast, which dives into the unique stories that come from the hellscape that is American health care. But it’s not depressing – it’s a nice conversation about everyday people vs American health care. As Dan puts it “ We’re like all blind people with this giant elephant – this giant terrifying fanged venomous elephant. And we got to get our get our picture of it together.”

You’re not going to you’re not going to wake up with a five hundred thousand dollar grocery bill all of a sudden and not know how you got it. But it’s entirely possible to go into the hospital because you’ve got a pain in your side and then get an appendectomy and be looking at a six figure bill.

 

We talk about:

  • Some of the interesting ways  people are still getting health care without going through traditional insurance
  • Why Dan is focusing on storytelling with this new show
  • Middle class guilt over being on Medicaid
  • Being a Jewish person on a Christian Health Sharing Ministry plan
About An Arm And A Leg Podcast

Health care – and how much it costs – is scary.  But you’re not alone with this stuff, and knowledge is power. We may be screwed, but we’re together – and together we may figure out how to get a little less-screwed. Also (this will sound weird, but stay with us) it’s going to be fun. Take a listen.
