Health Matters Armistice Show

100 years ago, at 11 AM on November 11, 1919, British leaders observed a two-minute period of silence to honor those soldiers who had died in World War I. That celebration spread around the world, triggering the predecessor of our Veterans Day. Many things have changed in the era of modern warfare, but unfortunately the loss of human life to achieve political ends remains. We salute our war heroes from all wars with this offering regarding handwashing, taking your blood pressure medicines at

13.5th Annual Fall Fall Spectacular show

Subtitled “Dead Men Don’t Move”, this show is about pronouncing a person dead, dealing with families, remaining upright, osteoporosis, and shoes with tread. Our two favorite articles are the fall prevention intervention from China that was badly translated, and the “Dead or Married” article illustrating the rising gap in life expectancy between married and single adults.

13.5th Annual Fall Fall Spectacular show

You Had Me at Meat Show

This show is dedicated to reviewing the latest findings regarding red meat and processed meat consumption. Nutrition experts issued a week recommendation that there is no reason to change your current meat intake to improve your health. This is opposite the recommendations of many groups, and sure to create a controversy, but their numbers are very large and their math looks sound. Grab some red meat and listen to us expose our ignorance.

You Had Me at Meat Show

We Got Board Show

We celebrate the (anticipated) close to the fall fundraiser with this show, reviewing the benefits of magnetic helmets in Alzheimer disease, the dangers of vaping, especially vaping marijuana, Kentucky's massive outbreak of hepatitis, and the use of fans during extreme heat waves. This reminder from our sponsor, the Vaccination League: get your fall flu shot, and enjoy the show.

We Got Board Show

Do We Soundboard? Show

Okay, this is fairly simple. Morehead State Public Radio needs money. You got money. How about we make a deal? We give you classical music, jazz music, bluegrass music, folk music, national news, state news, regional news, local news, weather, sports, interesting historical tidbits on The Readers Notebook, storytelling-- even the traffic report from Isonville (mostly clear with a chance of tractors). You give us money. Then we buy a new soundboard, and we do it all again.

So Long, Vikram Lander Show

This show gives us a chance to expound on the things that vex us – teenage children, werewolves, optimism, women’s health, vaccinations – while paying our respects to the ill-fated Vikram Lander. Just as it crashed on the moon's surface, we show you that radio shows can crash as well. The Vaccination League reminds you it is time to get your flu shot. But wait until after the show.

September: Still All the Bugs and All the Heat Show

It is September, it is still hot, there are still chiggers and ticks, and the Health Matters crew is still discussing the definition of middle-age. We can only hope that the season and the show will change. This show talks about the epidemic of pulmonary disease and death due to vaping that, at time of recording, still baffles the CDC. We talk about moving more and sitting less, suicides, mental health days for high school and college students, and Robo docs to improve access to healthcare.

September: Still All the Bugs and All the Heat Show

Welcome to the Middle Ages show

Due to uncertainty among some of our co-medical hosts (Rick) about when middle age begins, we developed this show to provide clarity. We revisit the question of middle aged men smelling worse than any other age group, talk about germ suits, discuss seven foods to avoid at all costs, and discuss why the US healthcare system is so darned expensive.

Why Does the Hubble Constant Change so Much? Show

Scientists believe our universe has been expanding since the Big Bang. The Hubble constant is a number expressing the speed of expansion of the universe. There are several methods of measuring the Hubble constant, and each one leads to a substantially different value. Scientists don’t blame each other when the numbers don’t add up, they simply agree that they need to understand the universe better. We need to understand each other better, which is why we talk about vertigo, lying about your age,

Reminds Me of Freshman Year Show

Brought to you by skin safety (“blame it on the melanoma”), we have our top 10 true false questions about melanomas, advice on healthcare policy and a look at the Affordable Care Act from Ezekiel Emmanuel, a discussion of life and the value of life after age 75, and some information about CBD oil.
