The shortcomings and missteps witnessed during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic affirmed Ellis’ decision to resume the radio program as a Podcast. The podcast “Information is the Best Medicine” covers health-related topics such as Dementia, Heart Disease, Vaccines, End-of-life, and many other pressing topics that impact us all. Consistent with all his work in the media, audiences for the podcast are equally divided between laypeople and health professionals. Each episode is brief but filled with empowering information about your health.
