After weeks of degrading medical professionals we turn to a true hero of medicine. He revolutionized psychiatry, he signed the Declaration of Independence and he’s still influential to this day. There’s just … there’s just one tiny problem. We’re talking about Benjamin Rush this week on Sawbones and you’ll want to join Justin and Dr. Sydnee when it all goes horribly wrong.

About the show
Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin welcome you to Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine. Every Friday, they dig through the annals of medical history to uncover all the odd, weird, wrong, dumb and just gross ways we’ve tried to fix people over the years. Educational? You bet! Fun? We hope!
