5 must-listen podcasts for health entrepreneurs

5 must-listen podcasts for health entrepreneurs(1)

I’ve selected 5 must-listen podcasts for health entrepreneurs that you should listen to. Because there are so many things to discover, and mostly so little time. So a podcast is a nice way to learn stuff and combine it by doing something else. For instance, I like listing to a podcast when I’m driving in my car.

In 2021, a survey on podcast consumption (Statista) revealed that 41 percent of U.S. adults had listened to a podcast within the last month, a figure which has more than tripled over the past decade.

Another survey found that in the first quarter of 2020, more than one out of three respondents aged between 26 and 35 years in the UK said they listened to podcasts on a weekly basis.

2021 holds the record for hours spent listening to podcasts with 15 billion hours compared to 12 billion just two years ago. (Statista)

While listening to different podcasts, I selected 5 podcasts any health entrepreneur should listen to. For insights, feeling with the target group, the end-user, or just for a good laugh!

3. Top Doctors: Patient Pedro by Pedro Elias (Belgium)

In ‘Top Doctors – Patient Pedro‘, Pedro has himself screened from head to toe by top doctors in Belgium.

You, as a listener, sit in the front row during all these examinations. In this way, he wants to finally find inner peace. Pedro is a hypochondriac.

In the episodes, every organ and part of Pedro is discussed: his prostate, intestines, heart, lungs and so on. While the doctors examine him thoroughly, he asks them questions. So, according to Pedro: exciting, painful, intimate and embarrassing. The examinations actually lead to some interventions.

4. Life Science Innovation in Poland is Thriving by Poland Technology (Poland)

Traditionally, Poland has a strong scientific base in life sciences and medicine but until recently was driven by the producers of generic drugs.
