This is the podcast I can recommend to everyone without any warnings! The history of medicine is hilarious and bizarre - and the combination of a medical professional and a comedian makes this accessible, funny, and informative. I cannot recommend this (or their book) more highly!
Medical history, research, a doctor’s perspective. It’s a wife and husband team you need to follow! The McElroys always produce great content.
My fiance and I are both soon-to-be physicians and we listen to this podcast together regularly. Justin is hilarious and brings so much fun to the podcast while Dr. McElroy does a great job telling the best historical medical stories.
One of my favorite podcasts! Sydnee and Justin work very well together to make me laugh, learn something, and also become slightly nauseous. But it's cool! I'll just grab me some leeches, that'll fix it right?
Educational, hilarious, and who doesn't love laughing WHILE learning? Sydney and Justin are a delightful couple to listen to and this great to listen do while doing other things. If learning about weird medical practices seems interesting, even in the slightest, I HIGHLY suggest you listen to this!
I think it's really useful to understand some of the really bonkers things we've done in the name of medicine.
Super interesting podcast like you won't BELIEVE all the things people have done as medicine over time and the reasoning behind things. it's wild. I especially like the episodes that focus on a specific historical figure and follow them around.
Informative and entertaining. Dr. Sydnee always presents the subjects in a way that regular people can understand, and Justin is... well, he’s Justin.
So interesting and funny
I always learn so much from this, and yet it makes learning so fun instead of scary. I would trust Dr. Sydnee McElory with my life.
Hilarious, educational and meaningful as more recent episodes have tackled contemporary health fads and trends, always with humour and heart.
Never not entertaining. Always interesting. I came for Justin and stayed for Sydnee, and they make an incredible podcasting pair. I have loved every episode I've listened to.
As a scientist and someone who loves comedy, if you're not listening to each new episode; then you're missing out. Dr. Sydnee and Justin are a comedy duo powerhouse and make medical learning fun, even if you're not a nerd like me.
I think this is an important podcast based on how much misinformation there is out there in the medical world. I enjoy Sydney's logical approach to all topics and their banter is pretty funny too.
Love it. Informative, entertaining a great listen.
Not funny at all, could not finish this one. Sydnee said some facts and McElroy just reacted, trying too hard to be funny. Nothing special.
This one needs way more editing. It's goofy and slow. If you know some medical history, it's also pretty boring. I love medical podcasts and I wanted to like this one, but it is just not tight enough to hold my attention. Not recommended.
This is a long running favorite that's not slowing down on the awesome content and professional quality. I'm a huge fan! My favorite episodes always mention family favorite Pliny the elder.
This is my McElroy entry-point. I think I'd prefer it to be more in depth?
Great blend of info and humor on all sorts of medical subjects. Justin plays a great "clueless guy" to Sydnee, who is generally pretty knowledgeable about the stuff they are discussing.
