Following on from the success of the first health podcast series, Anna Richardson gets straight down to business in series two as she tackles the different facts and fictions surrounding a number of health topics – from sleep disorders, bowels, and running to diabetes, cardiology and concussion.

Joining Anna in each episode’s myth-busting educational chat are leading HCA UK consultants for a particular specialty, alongside celebrity guests who push their fame to the side and add a personal touch as they share their own experiences of living with different conditions.
