The Best 39 Minutes You Can Spend Understanding the Various National Health Systems

NPR's "Fresh Air" broadcast a 39-minute interview with Jonathan Oberlander, a political scientist with expertise in health care politics and policy and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

If you want a straight down-the-middle 39-minute tour de force of leading international health care systems, as well as our own, give it a listen.
