RP HealthCast is a podcast series with top-tier journalists interviewed on topics relating to the coronavirus.

For years, RP has been a consistent supporter of journalism organizations. But the daily assault on a free press compelled us to do more.

Giving a human voice to great journalism and journalists is our way of supporting a free press, turn a few heads and, hopefully, influence a few minds.
