Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine


The Daily Stoic was featured in edition #22 of the Find That Pod newsletter.

Sawbones is a highly entertaining and educational podcast that explores the history of medicine, navigating the weird and wonderful ways that people have attempted to cure illness and disease throughout the ages. Hosted by Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin McElroy, the show is one of the most fascinating podcasts I’ve ever listened to, providing a fascinating insight into the evolution of medical science. 

Each episode of Sawbones focuses on a different aspect of medical history, from the bizarre treatments of the past to cutting-edge modern science. Dr. Sydnee is a knowledgeable and engaging host, bringing a unique perspective to each topic that she covers. Her passion for medicine is infectious, and she has a talent for making even the most complex medical concepts accessible to a lay audience.

One of the things that set Sawbones apart from other medical podcasts is the sense of humour that runs throughout the show. Justin is a funny and loveable co-host, providing witty commentary and making jokes that keep the show light and entertaining. Despite the often grim and gruesome subject matter, the McElroys manage to keep things fun and engaging, making Sawbones a pleasure to listen to.

Sawbones also makes a serious effort to ensure the show’s factual accuracy through extensive research, which is an additional layer of awesome that makes this podcast a highly recommended show. 

Dr. Sydnee is a practicing family physician and brings a wealth of medical knowledge to the show. She takes great care to fact-check all of her statements and provide accurate information to her listeners.

Overall, Sawbones is a fantastic podcast that I would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in medicine, history, or science. The McElroys are excellent hosts, and their chemistry makes the show a joy to listen to. Whether you’re a medical professional or a layperson, there is something in this show for everyone. So if you’re looking for a new podcast to add to your rotation, give Sawbones a listen – you won’t be disappointed!
