Love it!

I’m surprised by some of the bad reviews saying they are alienating “communities”. And I just have to ask, are you really surprised that a DOCTOR has strong views on anti-vaccination or homeopathic “medicine”?

For myself, I feel like they are running out of topics and history, but I blame the listeners, we need to offer more suggestions 😁

Used to be good

Gave 2 stars because the audio is still good. However the hosts have been getting more and more “woke” and have started to include unscientific pseudo social nonsense. Hopefully they find the vaccination to this disease soon before people get confused.

Used to adore this show

I used to be Sawbones’ biggest fan. I’ve listened to most of the episodes so many times, I can almost recite them. But more and more, episodes are about modern topics and a lot of preaching is going on. While I agree mostly with their views, it’s just not... fun? It was fun to listen to historical cures that were gross and ridiculous. It’s not fun to hear about the current unfortunate fads and about all the ways they are hurting people, over and over and over. That concept sounds like a fine podcast, but not a comedy medical history podcast—not Sawbones. Also, I feel like Justin isn’t as goofy anymore. It’s all so much more serious. I skip all the modern topics, which is most of their newer material. Older episodes are amazing.
