It's the newest streaming hit that is spilling all the tea on how Gen Z actually is using social media, what influencer parties are like, and why guinea pigs sometimes cause social media mayhem, and we're all obsessed with it, so let's talk about it! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by NouvellasBy Rileigh Smirl, Sydnee McElroy, Teylor Smirl
 
We love talking about music and all our favorite artists on our show, and sometimes it's because their work means a whole lot more to us than we even realize, and that's true for Tey this week as we dive into the discography of Elliot Smith. CW: mention of suicide, brief discussion of depression/mental illness Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by …
 
Hank Green in 2018 joked that everyone should take Metamucil, the fiber-rich powder that is supposed to help with your BMs. But is he right? Well . . . “should” is a strong word. Dr. Sydnee goes through the history of the supplement itself, made of psyllium, as well as our understanding of fiber and its use in human nutrition. And yeah, you probabl…
 
In the late 1800s, Dr. Herbert Snow observed cancer patients and considered that a mix of different medications might do the trick for slowing down its progress. The Brompton Cocktail, as it was called, was mostly cocaine and morphine. Though used for a long time for pain relief, the cocktail proved to have its problems – but maybe not for the reas…
 
Around the early 1900s, it was discovered that a high percent of ethanol was useful for killing germs, and worked great if there was no available soap and water. Dr. Sydnee and Justin go through viral internet stories and odd patents to explain how we eventually landed on the hand sanitizer we know and love today. Hey, if you can, though, wash your…
 
The overturning of Roe has created an astounding number of questions and problems, and the fact is that we don’t know for sure how the landscape will change in the next few years or even months. This week, Dr. Sydnee uses the best available information to answer listener questions about what the Roe decision means for those seeking medical care rel…
 
Back in 1917 radium was all the rage. The fact that it glowed made people believe it was healthy and important, so they included it in things like toothpaste, cosmetics, even water. The Radium Girls, factory workers who used radium-laced paints to detail watch faces, were among the first to indicate that it may not be as safe as we imagined. Charli…
 
What’s the deal with vomiting? Justin and Dr. Sydnee meditate on the various ways we get nauseated, from smelling something gross to getting hit in a sensitive spot, and what we’ve done over the years to help alleviate it. Although sometimes kids just vomit for no reason and we can’t really help you there. Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers https:…
 
We’re back with Sawbones Medical Questions! Justin acts as stand-in for the listeners while Dr. Sydnee answers questions about tall people getting COVID, eye goop, nose goop, labor organizing in the medical field, and corn in poop. This one’s for the Sawboners. Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers https://taxpayers.bandcamp.com/…
 
You may be worried we’re headed into another global health crisis in the form of Monkeypox. But it’s not new, and we already know quite a bit about it. Dr. Sydnee explains what it is, how to treat it, and the recommendations at the moment from the CDC, all compared to COVID (which is now unfortunately our standard for how to relate to potential pub…
 
It's yet another super influential media moment from the younger years of the older Smirl siblings that's been rebooted for the modern age: it's Chip and Dale! Sydnee and Teylor both had STRONG feelings about this one back in the day (most specifically about Gadget) so of course we had to revisit the reboot. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by No…
 
With the recent news about Roe v. Wade, it’s important to talk about the history of abortion in the United States. The right to autonomy over one’s own body in regard to medical care is one of the basic tenets of medical ethics; but no matter what anyone personally believes, banning abortion doesn’t stop abortion. It just makes it unsafe. Music: "M…
 
It was the multiplayer video game experience that defined the younger years of the older Smirl siblings, complete with such classic bits as DK mode and slappers only: it's Goldeneye! (Those GRAPHICS though...) CW: This video game is a first person shooter game, meaning there is brief mention of video game violence/guns. Music: "Baby You Change Your…
