Get info about kids’ health, wellness and safety topics from Dr. Mike, a pediatrician at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
Parents have questions. PediaCast has answers.
Join Dr. Mike for the latest news parents can use, answers to listener questions, and interviews with pediatric and parenting experts. PediaCast has been an evidence-based, award-winning podcast since 2006. And with hundreds of episodes, millions of downloads and listeners in all 50 states and over 100 countries, more parents trust PediaCast than any other audio source.
Each episode of our award-winning audio program provides trustworthy, detailed and up-to-date answers to your questions. How do we do it? We start by searching the latest peer-reviewed journals. We find current evidence-based answers. Then we work a little translation magic, turning scientist-talk into parent-talk. The result is an entertaining listen that’s not elementary.
Of course, your child's doctor is the best source of information for specific questions regarding your child's health. We believe in keeping the practice of medicine in the examination room. But we also know parents have many questions that don't get answered. Why do kids get so many ear infections? Is a fever dangerous? When should tonsils come out? Many parents think about these questions AFTER leaving the doctor's office. Others remember to ask, but get the short answer instead of details.
