I have loved every single season of this and listened to them multiple times. My pod catcher has finally revealed to me the secrets of review. This was long overdue.

Sydnee teaches and Justin's a goof. Together they're an amazing team. Pick any episode ever and you'll be in for a great time!

Sydnee is doing really important work with this podcast, especially during COVID. Some of Justin's best comedy too

Sometimes a little too US-centric on more recent issues, but the historical episodes are consistently fascinating and educational, as well as entertaining.

I love this podcast. Syd and Justin are a stellar hosting pair. This and MBMBAM are my podcast staples

Educational and interesting. Great for all ages. Also it's obvious how much they love each other and I have low-key adopted them as my parents.

Very good, but... Understand this is a comedy podcast. Info is good but you need to be ready to hear something you might have believed or hoped be mocked. Still listening after many years. :-)

Sawbones is funny, clever and interesting. They do a great job looking at medical history and also tackle more modern 'alternative medicine' topics with a compassionate, science based approach. Justin and Sydnee are brilliant and I look forward to the new Sawbones episode every week.

This is my favorite podcast! It is such a wonderful blend of comedy, gross medical history, and the wonders of modern medicine. I've listened to every episode multiple times and I bet you will too. Love, love, love!

I adore this podcast. Both of the hosts clearly care about their audience, and this podcast has a great mix of humorous history and important connections to medicine as it stands today. As an Epidemiologist, I love that this podcast takes amazing stories from our past and helps make medical history relevant to a broad audience today.

Always entertaining and informative. Started listening to the episodes that sounded interesting, then found that even the ones that didn't sound it were still great.

Informative and entertaining! Dr. Sydnee McElroy is an absolute joy. She has a gift for explaining complex issues in a very accessible way, and her humor, quick wit, and compassion make history memorable and exciting. Justin is his wife's #1 fan and it's very sweet. He's got a good balance between comedy and empathy-- his commentary is usually light and a good audience stand-in, but he doesn't belittle serious topics and gets passionate about injustices right alongside Dr. McElroy.

I've listened to every episode at least twice (most of them more than that) and I never cease to be amused. Justin and Sydnee are wonderful people who make an equally wonderful podcast.
