I produce Truthseekers - Health Justice Podcast - focused on health justice and false corporate narrative around U.S. health insurance reform. Because the server failed on the former link, I recently converted and moved the podcast audios to a YouTube Channel titled Truthseekers - Health Justice Podcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCw__m5s6qrfljXiBxmD9oMg
One podcast describes how Neoliberalism has yielded "Wealthcare, not Healthcare." I also produced a piece about how Libby, Montana residents came to be covered by Medicare following environmental catastrophe - an example of a means to achieve Medicare coverage for all those subject to COVID and its aftermath, and many more, if the political will can be discovered. Currently I am working on a podcast titled "Hedgefund Healthcare" about the takeover of management of many sectors of U.S. health care by Wall St since the '90s. By 2020, half of U.S. emergency rooms were reported managed by Private Equity firms, as well as many hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, and other departments. Private Equity firms, Hegdefunds and other investors have boosted profits by cutting hospital staffing, pay and benefits, and even closing hospitals that are not profittable.

I have also worked with Dr. Tom Gottlieb for four years as he and Eldon Van Der Wege have written a financial plan for "Extended Medicare for All" - online at https://extendedmedicare.info/ - a 40+ page paper integrating Social Security Law, etc. as a means to extend Medicare to all residents of the U.S. I know that Dr. Gottlieb has registered for the conference, and would urge that he be included in the discussion about the path to financing Medicare for All.
