The show is hosted by Devan and Tyler, who explore important and sometimes controversial topics in bioethics and medical ethics. Each episode navigates through historical and contemporary cases, addressing the ethical dimensions of various medical practices, legal decisions, and healthcare policies.

The episodes cover an extensive range of subjects including landmark cases in medical ethics such as Willowbrook State School and Dax Cowart's refusal of medical treatment. The podcast frequently tackles dilemmas involving vulnerable populations and the ethical boundaries of medical research. Issues of consent, patient rights, and the ethical implications of medical treatments and decisions are recurrent themes. For instance, episodes discuss the ethics surrounding life-prolonging treatment, organ transplantation, and the autonomy of patients and their surrogates in making healthcare decisions.

A number of episodes focus on specific cases that have broader implications for public health and policy, such as the judicial review of drugs, vaccine mandates, and the ethical considerations of new reproductive technologies. The podcast also touches on bioethics in the context of mental health, disability rights, and healthcare provider-patient-family dynamics.

In addition to case studies, the podcast explores the historical and societal contexts of bioethical issues, such as the legacy of eugenics, forced sterilization, and the impact of seminal legal rulings like Buck v. Bell. Moreover, there are episodes that address pressing contemporary issues like the opioid epidemic, COVID-19 vaccine distribution, and religious exemptions in healthcare.

Special episodes include discussions with guest experts, reviews of significant publications, and reflections on the hosts' experiences with the podcast. There are also themed episodes around holidays or specific events, offering a lighter or more thematic approach to bioethics.

Overall, "Bioethics for the People" provides a comprehensive and varied exploration of bioethics, making complex ethical issues in healthcare understandable and relevant for anyone interested in the field.
