If you’re the type to be captivated and fascinated by true stories, a new podcast titled “Bedside Stories” will be right up your alley.
The narrated podcast will highlight some emotionally compelling stories that include personal experiences taking place behind the scenes of the world of health care.
It will take listeners through various medical challenges that include tense moments and inspiring success stories with patients, medical staff and others. Approximately 15 minutes in length, each episode will offer tightly woven storytelling that is comparable to other famous podcasts such as “This American Life,” “Ear Hustle” and “Serial.”
One recent episode features an interview with a 34-year-old woman who died from a heart attack — and was revived — while giving birth to her daughter, both of whom are now in good health. Another episode consists of a miner sharing his experience of being trapped alone for more than 48 hours in a dark mine shaft in the Arizona desert, 100 feet down, surrounded by deadly rattlesnakes.
“These truly brave and unforgettable people are sharing some of the most intimate and profound moments of their lives,” said Bedside Stories host and narrator Corey Schubert. “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.”
A former NASA editor and journalist whose work has been featured on Dateline NBC and Discovery ID, Schubert is a public relations specialist for nonprofit Banner Health, which produces the podcast.
Headquartered in Arizona, Banner Health is one of the largest nonprofit health care systems in the country.
Bedside Stories is available on iTunes, Spotify and Anchor.
