Join Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin McElroy for a tour of all the dumb, bad, gross, weird and wrong ways we've tried to fix people.
Even More Weird Medical Questions
Is it possible for your medical questions to be ... too weird? That's a question you may be asking yourself on this latest Q&A episode of Sawbones, which explores the contents of poop and a secret button above your buttcrack that makes you pee.
With news that a COVID-19 vaccine may be on the horizon and flu shot season in full swing, we take things back to basics with a history of the hypodermic needle and syringe. Also, a strangely large amount of car talk for you gear heads.
On a chilly, rainy Civil War battlefield in Tennessee, soldiers started noticing something strange: Some of their wounds had begun ... glowing. Stranger still: Those with the glow tended to fare better than their illuminated counterparts. The assumption? Angels were bringing them back from the brink.
An incredible story.
This week on Sawbones? You guessed it, Dr. Sydnee and her old buddy Science are gonna ruin the whole thing.
A Health Care Voter's Guide
If, by some set of unexplainable circumstances, you are still an undecided voter in the U.S. we've prepared something special for you in anticipation of next week's presidential election on Nov. 3. If you're not undecided, you'll at least have a better understanding of how important this election is.
We'll be reviewing the major tenets of the healthcare plans of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Who will have the better plan? You'll have to listen to find out. (It's not Trump.)
There's been a lot of discussion about herd immunity in the face of COVID-19, but did you know that anyone who talks about achieving herd immunity without a vaccine (something humanity has never pulled off ever) is a big stinky liar goofball?
We'll explore that truth and so much more on this week's episode of Sawbones.
Sawbones: Osteopathic Medicine
Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.s) have been thrust into the spotlight recently when one was tasked with caring for the world's most famous COVID-19 patient. Some even went so far as to dismiss the president's D.O. for those two letters following his name. But is that fair?
This week on Sawbones: Do D.O.s do what M.D.s do?

One of a Kind!!
I absolutely LIVE for this podcast! I’ve listened to every episode. Sydnee and Justin are amazing people, always informative, always funny, always politically correct. Which I think is fantastic and important when touching upon certain archaic and historical topics.
I’m an artist and I play this when I’m working in my studio, it gives me inspiration, concepts and research prompts. I find myself breaking to take notes all the time. I find medical history fascinating! So I enjoy the opportunity to listen to it, rather than reading about it all the time.
Sydnee does such a wonderful job at researching the topics and Justin has hilarious commentary. I look forward to listening to your show every week.
I commend you for getting so far, and improving with every episode!
You’ve done some monumental work for the community. I appreciate the jokes, but I also really appreciate the facts and serious tones!
This podcast is EASILY my most favourite, for so many reasons. I always learn something new that I pass along to my friends / family. I’ll also suggest this show when people are looking for new listening material.
Your both awesome!! Thank so much, for what you do! Keep them coming!!!!!
I was hooked from the first minute.
