Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine

Screenshot
Sawbones was originally featured in the 8-4-2016 Scout Report and since then it has added approximately 100 new episodes. Recent topics include "27 Reasons Why You Should Get Your Flu Shot," the nutrition ideas of Dr. Price, and a tour of the many ways of dying on the Oregon Trail.

Sawbones is a podcast hosted by spouses Dr. Sydnee and Justin McElroy (hence, the title) that explores a variety of misconceptions throughout the history of medicine. On this website, readers can listen to regularly updated episodes (147 so far) that address issues like the ailments of former U.S. presidents, the history of earache cures, and fasting throughout world history. While this podcast mainly focuses on medical history, it also features a regular segment called Goofy Medical Questions, which addresses common queries that many folks have wondered, but are perhaps too sheepish, to ask their doctor (e.g. "Is it really so bad to pop a pimple?"). Each episode is approximately one hour in length. Interested listeners can subscribe via Apple Podcasts or RSS feed.
