Summer reissue: Emma Espiner on Getting Better

The Fold is taking a short break over summer. We'll be back with new episodes soon, but until then here's one of our favourites from 2021.

Emma Espiner is a writer, commentator, podcaster and doctor. She won Opinion Writer of the Year at the Voyager Media Awards in 2020, the same year she completed her medical degree – her podcast about that final year as a Māori med student navigating New Zealand's inequitable health system, Getting Better, was then named Best Narrative Podcast at the 2021 Voyagers. In this episode she talks with Duncan about making Getting Better, the way the media interacts with healthcare and how it’s been starting out as a junior doctor in 2021.
