In Star Trek: The Next Generation S06E05, "Schisms," Commander Riker and the Enterprise crew suffer from sleep deprivation. This is something doctors have first-hand experience with. Dr. Jackson, Johnny, and guests Dr. Courtney Nicholas and Dr. Greg Winter discuss the effects of sleep deprivation on the body and on the medical community and attempt to assess the medically accuracy of Star Trek.
This week we're talking about an episode of TV that's gotten a lot of flack from the medical community. On S07E02 of The Blacklist, there's a chest tube insertion that's depicted rather poorly. Jackson and Johnny thought that'd be the only thing we'd have to talk about from this episode. We were very, very wrong.

Jackson and Johnny discuss the medical accuracy of Hobbs and Shaw, the latest entry into the Fast and Furious Cinematic Universe. In the film, an apocalyptic super-virus is eliminated when The Rock helps Jason Statham's sister undergo dialysis using an iPad. We loved this movie.

It's our most topical show yet! We're discussing American Horror Story: 1984's "Episode 100," which first aired October 23, 2019. How medically accurate is the execution? Are the inaccuracies just a red herring? Was there, for once, too MUCH blood? Our intro this week came from Tom Feeney of The Deep Dive Podcast. You can send us an intro too!
