Today, I’m recommending this podcast done by Dr Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin McElroy! I came across the podcast thanks to the wonderful recommendation of Sanne, of booksandquills fame and one of my favourite Booktubers.
Just as the title says it’s a marital tour of misguided medicine. Each week they pick a medical topic to talk about and they go in-depth on the history of it. It combines both medical history and comedy in a way that just works. Also, it’s amazing how far we’ve come today in achieving modern medicine. I found myself laughing out loud numerous times whilst I’m in the train, doing mindless chores – it’s a great way to pass the time whilst still learning something. I’ve only listened to a couple of episodes so far (it’s annoying that iTunes only keeps the latest 100 episodes) but my favourite so far is the one on Royal Raymond Rife. God, that man must have some strange ideas in his head when he created his (failed) inventions.
