You’re worth it

Did you know that if a toilet is powerful enough, flushing it can aerosolize its contents and shoot them up to fifteen feet in the air? If you're glad you know that now, then you'll love Sawbones, a survey of the alternately horrifying and hilarious history of medicine brought to you by Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her hapless husband Justin. Did people used to give their kids opium mixed with alcohol for a tummy ache? You bet. Were tiny worms once blamed for cavities? Heck yeah they were. How long did it take for human beings to realize that rubbing feces in their open wounds was a bad idea? A lot longer than it should have! Take a deep breath, brace yourself, and enjoy Sawbones, a podcast that will really balance your humors.

Love this podcast more than leeches

I just finished listening to every single episode. Funny, punny, lovable and educational. The occasional modern episode is an important reminder of how pseudoscience slips into our everyday lives. Thanks for being you!

Started strong.... not so much now.

The early episodes were fantastic. Informative, fun and laughable. The newer ones are so opinionated and I was disappointed to hear the turn go from informative to opinionated. I was also disappointed that it wasn’t funny. It became more of a chore to listen than for fun. Social media is already fueled with negativity as it is. I would listen to this for an enjoyable change from all that. Now the episodes are exactly that.
You guys lost it.
