Banner Health launches podcast featuring medical stories

Phoenix-based Banner Health has launched a podcast called "Bedside Stories" to give listeners the opportunity to hear some of the most engaging stories of patients and clinicians at the system.

The 15-minute episodes feature medical challenges, tense moments and inspiring successes. The podcast's narrative storytelling is similar to shows such as "This American Life" and "Serial."

"These truly brave and unforgettable people are sharing some of the most intimate and profound moments of their lives," said Corey Schubert, host and narrator of "Bedside Stories." "That sounds heavy, but there’s a lot of laughter, too. These are stories that remind us how we're all more alike, as humans, than we are different."
