Adam Ruins Everything Episode 40: Dr. Arjun Srinivasan on Antibiotic Resistance

| 0 comments

Is the antibiotic resistance apocalypse approaching? This week's guest, Dr. Arjun Srinivasan, who appeared on Adam Ruins the Hospital, says yes. On the podcast, Adam and Arjun discuss how doctors are overprescribing antibiotics, an incredibly dangerous practice. Overprescription actually makes our bacteria more resistant to antibiotics; if we become immune to these antibiotics, they can't help us fight against mild infections -- let alone extreme ones. Arjun says doctors should be intentional in how often they prescribe antibiotics and patients shouldn't think of them as a cure-all. Additionally, governments should be investing in funding for methods of battling antibiotic resistance, including new drugs and research. 
 
Arjun is the Associate Director for Healthcare Associated Infection Prevention Programs at the CDC.

Adam is on Twitter @AdamConover and you can find past episodes and bonus content from the TruTV show at AdamRuinsEverything.com.

Then Amita and Sean revisit one of their favorite segments of the past year and share their discussion of the music by some of their favorite female singers that has defined pivotal moments in their lives. Whether grappling with life in the closet, coping with feeling like an outsider, celebrating the joy of a new found independence or discovering a strengthening friendship we highlight the music that has provided an essential soundtrack to our lives. Our "Defining Divas" include Mary J. Blige, Annie Lennox, Mariah Carey, Lauren Hill and BOTH Knowles sisters - Beyonce and Solange.

And then Sean rates the final big sell of the year - the single "Underdog" by singer/songwriter Banks.

| 0 comments

Ross and Carrie tune in for more extraordinary claims from the Flat Earth International Conference. With the help of flat earth celebs like Mark Sargent and Mr. Thrive and Survive, they learn that the sun is just a projection, The Truman Show is basically a true story, the Chicago skyline proves the earth isn't round, and Islam is wrong. But this isn't a religious thing. Plus, play our new favorite game: "Which Elon Musk quote is a lie?" (It's all of them.)
