Strong Points: Coverage of hot news topics
Weak Points: Nothing significant
As the speed of Internet connections has increased, so too has the volume of content hosts are willing to provide. One of the most useful of these is NIH Radio, which provides streaming audio content on the many health topics covered by the agency. The audio files are readily placed onto an iPod or played on a laptop. New audio files are posted weekly and are available as transcripts. Discussions cover late-breaking health news. With report archives going back to 2005, NIH radio is a must listen production that will likely make it onto the calendars of everyone interested in the latest health-related news. Kudos to the NIH for putting these together.
