Fantastic podcast

An excellent podcast by two experts who are obviously enjoying themselves. Dr Nikki’s laugh worth the price of admission alone. So good to hear we’ll articulated science communication.

Great

An excellent example of how to critically consume content- funny, informative, highlighting the hypocrisy and false equivalencies used in the types of documentaries.
Also empathetic and kind- hard balance to strike! Great job!!

Fantastic

I found this podcast after talking to a friend about unwell and I really appreciated their perspective on the wellness trend; and how they analysed the shows presentation. I was surprised by how much I had missed in the episode and the true dangers behind it all. Also what is wrong with US hospitals
