Health & Society Podcasts


Welcome to “Health & Society”, a new podcast series featuring early career researchers in the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine at King’s College London. Each podcast features one researcher discussing their work with interviewer Nigel Warburton. Our researchers cover subjects across a broad range of the most important health-related issues facing the world today, ranging from reproductive technologies through to population ageing, and many areas in between.  The podcasts are informative and accessible, aiming to support improved understanding of pertinent issues while remaining entertaining. We hope that the use of new media will allow us to convey valuable understandings into the public realm in a more meaningful way than traditional written or presentation mediums of knowledge transfer allow. To further our outreach, we have also pursued a variety of media platforms for Health & Society. We have an online presence within King’s College London and a dedicated Health & Society website, where our podcasts, transcripts, researcher biographies and further information can be found. You can also access our podcasts through our YouTube channel. Our podcasts are also available via iTunes and SoundCloud. We hope you enjoy Health & Society podcasts.
