    Yes friends, that's the actual name of the U.S. government's race to creation a coronavirus vaccine. It's either radical or a huge embarrassment, depending on which Sawbones co-host you are. This week, we'll talk about the progress so far and what work still remains.

Informative, funny, and friendly.

This couple is not only an amazing dynamic duo, but they play off each other’s strengths like they were born to be podcast cohosts. They pull you in and leave you asking for more! My favorite new thing is to drop strange medical history facts on my friends and family whenever possible.

Great Research

This is an amazing podcast for people that love medical history. I’ve been hopping around and listening to episodes I want to know more about. I would also like to remind everyone that this is a free form of entertainment and you don’t have to listen if you don’t want to listen.

Getting Too Political

I love the content but as of late they have gotten too political. What happened to “why can’t we just have fun for an hour”?
