About this program

The longest running community radio show in the universe dedicated to all things health and medicine and well-being - curing Saturday night hangovers every Sunday morning since March 1996!

A team of irreverent (but relatively well qualified) medicos and special guests from around Australia and the Globe shed light on everything from Asthma to Zika Virus, your headaches and your heartaches, your sneezing and your snoozing, your meditation and your medication - it's your prescription with your Triple R subscription!


The podcast intro and outro theme is Soft Illusion and was generously provided by Andras.
