77 episodes

Doctors talk about what Hollywood gets right and wrong about medicine and how the body works. Each week we discuss how a film or episode of television depicts illnesses, injuries, and the lives of medical professionals.

As we wrap up each episode, the film or show being discussed is graded for its medical accuracy in comparison to 2010’s The Human Centipede, which marketed itself as “100% medically accurate.” Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, for example, is considered “140% medically accurate” when compared to The Human Centipede. Luc Besson’s Lucy, meanwhile, was awarded a 10%. Midsommar earned our highest rank yet, at 400% - which means it's roughly four times more medically accurate than The Human Centipede.

New episodes Thursdays!

    Morbius - "I've got a bat tube guy"

    Morbius - "I've got a bat tube guy"

    We're sorry. We thought it would be a good idea to watch Morbius, and, as part of Hortober, discuss its medical accuracy. 
    It's never a good idea to watch Morbius.

Amazing!

These guys are great, glad I found them!

I can’t wait for it to get better

Step one in starting a podcast: invest in a very good sound system. 2: give all participants their own microphone. 3: prepare the room to eliminate echoing. 4: encourage participants to not talk over someone each other. I know this sounds harsh but I really like the idea of this podcast as I am in the medical field and I want this to be great. I’m usually doing something else while I listen like driving or washing dishes. If I’m straining to hear it or understand what was said, I’ll usually turn it off. I will definitely check back in a few months to see if the sound has improved but for now I’ll probably find another podcast with better sound quality.
