A 30-minute video about health insurance terminology has racked up more than a million views.
Host Dan Weissmann spoke with Brian David Gilbert, the person behind the video.
Gilbert is best known for his videos for Polygon, a media company focused on video games. But when he left that job to strike out on his own, he needed new health insurance. In this episode of the “An Arm and a Leg” podcast, Gilbert explains how his quest to find coverage inspired him to tackle one of his most difficult subjects yet: U.S. health insurance.
