Books about health and the NHS have proved popular in the last few years, but in light of the events of last year and the ongoing effects of the Covid 19 pandemic, there is now a growing appetite for information and analysis around public health.

In this week’s episode, host Razia Iqbal is in conversation with Madeleine Bunting, former Baillie Gifford Prize longlisted author for her book Labours of Love, and doctor, TV presenter, and 2019 Baillie Gifford judge Dr Xand. The guests open up about the way the pandemic has affected their personal and professional lives, as well as pointing to some of the severe flaws in the health and social care system that have recently come to light. The discussion touches on some key topics related to health and information that are shaping our understanding on the current world around us.
