    Episode 7: Blood in the Time of Dinosaurs

    Episode 7: Blood in the Time of Dinosaurs

    In episode 7 of this season, we talk about Mad Max's terrible IV line management and the overuse of dino rex machina. Bedside organization is important even when you're working on a high speed scrap heap in the middle of a desert while being chased by War Boys. Plus, we finally take our highly anticipated trip to Jurassic World and discuss whether you can give good guy T-rex blood to a velociraptor. The main question is this: how many iterations of Jurassic Park do we need to build before someone tightens up these lax security protocols? (for full episode notes, visit docswatchpod.com)

    Episode 6: This Sith is on Fire

    Episode 6: This Sith is on Fire

    In this episode, we talk about why you should just say no to dueling inside of an actively erupting volcano. At least not without proper protective equipment. (But preferably not all.) Our favorite (not) medical droids make another appearance and are still in dire need of a software update. Who's in charge here anyway? And where's a scrunchy when you need one?

    Episode 5: Harry Potter and the Order to Sit Out the Game

    Episode 5: Harry Potter and the Order to Sit Out the Game

    In this episode, we talk about the casual child endangerment of the wizarding world's favorite full contact sport, Quidditch! Is Madam Hooch up to date with brain injury management guidelines? Does Hogwarts even have a concussion protocol if they don't have a "What to Do if He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named Shows Up at Hogwarts" protocol? Gravity still applies to magical worlds, and so does blunt force trauma. Which means that there is a woeful lack of helmets. What's the liability insurance sitch at Hogwarts?

    Episode 4: Jason Momoa's Aquaman

    Episode 4: Jason Momoa's Aquaman

    In episode 4, we ask the important questions about the Aquaman cinematic universe (and also spend a not insignificant amount of time thirsting after Jason Momoa). What is up with the physiological class stratification of Atlanteans? Is blonde hair a curse? Why is Pinocchio so important to this movie? AND WHY WON'T ANYONE TALK ABOUT THE DINOSAURS??? We answer none of these questions and answer a bunch of other ones in this ep! (for full episode notes, go to docswatchpod.com)

    Episode 3: AKA A Shotgun Blast to the Head

    Episode 3: AKA A Shotgun Blast to the Head

    In episode 3, we talk about, well, shotgun blasts to the head. But specifically when your head is impenetrable. When your superpower is being super dense, how are you supposed to get medical care? Also, let's talk about why Claire Temple is the real hero. (for full episode notes, go to docswatchpod.com)

    Episode 2: The Empire Needs BiPAP

    Episode 2: The Empire Needs BiPAP

    In episode 2, we talk about everyone's favorite mobile ICU from a galaxy far, far away. How does Darth Vader fit all of his medical equipment in his suit? How many backpack droids does he have? Also, we talk a lot about poop. Everybody poops. Even Darth Vader. (for full episode notes, go to docswatchpod.com)

This is Fun

This right here is my kind of fun. I’m a sci fi and fantasy writer (with a dozen short stories published in professional magazines) so this podcast is not just entertaining but also seriously helpful.

Nerdy, interesting, hilarious!!

Dr Deepa and Dr Jen are so fun much to listen to. They break down and answer a lot of questions that nerds like myself wonder about when watching pop culture movies in a way that is somewhat scientific yet entertaining! Love it!!!

Funny, engaging AND educational

Doctor Jen and Doctor Deepa really hit the podcast trifecta here: they’re super engaging, really funny, and they’re obviously way knowledgeable about medical science. They’ve got great chemistry right out of the box—I can only guess what they’ll be like together at episode 100. I subscribed in the first 10 minutes; it’s just a blast from bell to bell.
