Love this podcast
Dr. Rodman tells fascinating stories about the history and origins of medical practice in a way that is compelling, enjoyable, and easily palatable. Probably one of my favorite medical podcasts. 10 out of 10, would recommend!
One of the Best
Of all the medical podcasts I subscribe to, this is one of the best. Interesting stories. Well laid out. Well produced and only one voice. Quality.
The Podcast I’ve Been Searching For
An entertaining and in depth exploration of medical history, epistemology, and biostatistics, Bedside Rounds is everything I’ve been looking for in a podcast and more. Thank you Dr. Rodman for filling my nightly commute with wonders of the world of medicine!
Thank you, Dr. Rodman for bringing history and philosophy together in this entertaining podcast. It helps to know how did we get here!
Fascinating to learn various aspects of the history of medicine.
Great for nurses too!!
I love this podcast. Great for during lunch or on the way home from work. Entertaining and useful for my profession. Makes for fun small talk.
Medical history nerdisms
Great podcast, brings in the medical history that is often glossed over in medical school and illuminates the often obscure origins of its innovations. My only suggestion would be to give a mid episode pause! There have been episodes when I’ve been listening and I can feel my brain get tired from all the sustained attention and rapid listening. Otherwise, keep up the good work!
Perhaps the perfect podcast for me
As a third year medical student and a holder of a BA with honors in medical history this was the podcast I never knew was seemingly designed with me in mind. A wonderful recent find I hope will be an enduring source of knowledge and entertainment.
I am a pediatrician who loves history like you. I love how you look at medicine through the eyes of history and remove some of the fog from our chosen vocation.
Thank you Dr. Rodman
Your podcast is highly entertaining and well written. I always learn something new that helps me understand how our current medical knowledge and practice is derived from the past. Your question/answer final chapter is a great way to wrap up each episode with interesting questions from your listeners. Thanks for all your hard work researching our medical past.
Best medical podcast I have ever listened to. I am a resident in family medicine and it is sooo cool to hear about the history of medicine and where all the things I was told was true came from. I tell anyone who will listen about the podcast. Top shelf sir, top shelf.
This is without a doubt my favorite medical podcast. I learn something with every episode, which are really diverse and not at all drawn out. I love listening to this on my way to classes -- please keep making more.
P.S. Would LOVE to hear more about your work in Africa!
Great story telling with real sources!
Best of all worlds with great medical storytelling by a real doctor on interesting topics with insights that make you thnk. AND sources always provided, which should get 6 stars. I can't believe he has time to produce this while being a full-time medical resident.

Stumbled on this podcast when trawling for pre-med inspiration reading and listening material. Absolutely perfect and thorough lesson set to learn and source of jumping off points to learn even more!
Absolutely love this one.
Adam has a contagious enthusiasm for medical history, and his deep-dives into the topic are full of fascinating details rarely covered by others. If you're in the medical field, or just interested in the history of medicine, I can't recommend this podcast enough.
best commuter companion
Excellent reviews w a wonderful perspective. For any one who is burning out and lost his/her compass, the content herein (philosophy, history, psychology, epistemiology, science) is the way back. Congratulations.
What a podcast should be
I recently discovered this podcast after seeing Dr Rodman’s excellent answer in r/askhistorians, and investigating his other works. In the past 2 days I have been listening nonstop, with each episode covering topics in meticulous detail and accuracy, infusing genuine insight, humor, and humanity into a subject that has often been made dry and unpalatable.
As someone who enjoyed the earlier episodes of radiolab, but found the coverage rather shallow at times, “bedside rounds” delves into fascinating and controversial topics, without being mired in impregnable jargon. I look forward to listening to this podcast for many episodes to come!
Requires listening for young docs
Dr. Rodman’s podcast is an outstanding education tool for intrepid young practitioners and interested laypersons alike. From enlivening biostats to exploring the paleopathology of The Empire Strikes Back, he edutains with the best.

Top notch podcast. When I subscribed, I expected something totally different, case studies, evidence based medicine, and the like. Instead, such a wonderfully researched and presented look at medical history. I am hooked, and sharing with my friends.
Dr. Rodman's telling of medical history is riveting and his research is impressively thorough. I can't stop talking about the fun things I've learned. Dinner guests and patients alike have been subjected to my retellings of the Filth Parties and other bizarre and sometimes gross medical history.
This is an incredible production that goes into fascinating details about medicine, society and history. I am an internist but would recommend this anyone. I hope that these episodes get collected and released as a book as well.
Great podcast! Super interesting, intelligent and fun.
Highly recommended for all medical professionals - super informative and enjoyable!
Thank you so much! Big fan of this great podcast. Excellent work!
Found this podcast only a few days ago and I’ve already made it through over fifteen of the episodes. Really easy to listen to and incredibly fascinating! Find myself googling topics he covers for more information because they’re so interesting. Highly recommend!
Great medical podcast
Nice length episodes, well delivered - I'm really enjoying
Great medical stories. Flows great
The topics are interesting and very thoughtfully chosen, and the depth of research that goes into episode is great. Although Adam addresses some intense topics, he still manages to keep the tone of the show light and enjoyable. I appreciate all the nerd jokes!
Awesome for the drive to work
Nirvana for the Medical History Nerd
I've loved medical history and narratives since picking up my first Berton Roueche book in fifth grade. I have a pretty good knowledge of medical history so even if I've heard the stories before, it's always cool to hear them from a different perspective. Adam makes my lunch-time just fly by. This pod is well worth your time if you have even a passing interest in the subject.
Anyone of us
This is a great podcast for anyone with any interest in medicine, history, or people & society in general. The host and senior producer have great chemistry and tell stories with great care and depth. Thanks & keep up the good work!
Excellent and informative
Excellent medical information and knowledge that is off the beaten path
Educational and entertaining!
What I really appreciate about this podcast is that Adam manages to keep the conversation relevant to the topic while being entertaining. Part of me wishes the podcast episodes were always 20-30 minutes long, but then I couldn't listen to a whole episode on the way to work!
The topics are super interesting and Adam is an excellent podcast host. I look forward to this podcast every week!
Adam is a character
Adam Rodman KILLS it in this great show on medical stories.
Keeps me wanting more!
Easily my favorite podcast out there. Keep up the good work!
These have made my morning commute to the hospital MUCH more enjoyable!
I absolutely love this podcast. Rodman asks intriguing questions and supplies well thought out, entertaining and well researched answers. Great for both medical professionals and the insatiably curious. Well done Adam !
Listen to this podcast!
Pretty entertaining overall. It occasionally veers into being too medical for my tastes (but I'm not a doctor). My favorite episode so far has been "The Iceman" -- give it a listen!
Really hit its stride
the masked doctor
This podcast has really hit its stride recently! Short, entertaining, enlightening stories from the history and present of medicine. As a doctor, most of these I either didn't know about, or was only aware tangentially. Really speaks to the human side of medicine.
Internal medicine resident loves this on the commute in
Dr. Rodman is fun, clever, and has a radio voice that I'm sure stands out on bedside rounds at the hospital. THe podcasts are extremely well researched and quite a bit of fun.
Dr. Rodman brings me great joy
I love this man. Such melodious voice. Such discerning consideration. Such erudition. Such amaze. So wow. Wow.
Favorite medical podcast
Just a great podcasts that focuses on interesting stories in clinical medicine. Great for health care professionals and regular folks alike
exxcccelllent(Mr Burns voice)

The human side of medicine
A bit unpolished (but moreso as it goes along!), but Bedside Rounds really shines in showcasing the tidbits and interesting stories that show the human side of medicine.
Great for a short drive to work!
Insightful, quick segments of information. Not at the sound quality of RadioLab but making giant strides with great potential in just a few episodes. Looking forward to upcoming episodes!
