You didn’t know you needed them

Sarah and Chrissy are so entertaining! The topics and content are great. I love that they let me suggest topics and even cover them within a few weeks. This couldn’t get better even if Stefan from SNL did the intro like “this podcast has everything: asbestos, cults, syphilis, those medical words no one can pronounce…” 😂

An informative, yet fun escape!

I absolutely love learning new things, so Oddly Medical is a nice change of pace after a long day at work and a long commute. Chrissy and Sarah add a great comedic twist to some dark historical medical theories. I am so glad to have found this podcast!
