This week on Sawbones, we celebrate a trip to Minnesota with an exploration of Viking’s Disease. You’ll meet the people it isn’t really named for and the guy who beat out a long line of researchers to get it named after himself. It’s a whole thing. You’ll see.
Music: “Medicines” by The Taxpayers
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!
