Podcasts: Sawbones

I was converted.

To my surprise and from my own ignorance I realized podcasts aren’t outdated at all! And there are so many! I’m looking forward to this newly discovered thing…for me… I can’t believe it took me this long.

One of the one’s I’ve recently discovered after someone recommending it is “Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine.

It’s hosted by Dr. Sydnee McElroy and co-hosted by her husband Justin. The two will cover a topic and all the different types of treatments, research, etc. that happened throughout history prior to the methods we use today.

It’s quite interesting whether you are into medicine or not. It’s crazy to hear how certain things were treated or viewed years and even centuries ago. If you’re into podcasts I encourage you to give this one a listen!
