SiriusXM’s Stitcher is expanding its partnership with the Freakonomics Radio Network with the release of a new show, This Won’t Hurt A Bit hosted by Dr. Bapu Jena, a Ph.D. economist and Harvard M.D.
The show takes a look at the hidden side of healthcare.
Each week, in episodes that clock in around 15 minutes, Jena will explore and explain a medical study to answer questions like: Is having surgery on your surgeon’s birthday a bad idea? Why do patients with heart problems do better when cardiologists are all at a medical convention? Do your doctor’s politics affect your healthcare?
