Today, it’s spooky podcast time!
I do love me some podcasts. And I really love me the Sawbones podcast. Being a huge history of medicine, cultural anthropology nerd, scoping for new Sawbones episode is the #1 reason why I hit refresh on my New Podcasts feed.
Sawbones is usually Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her husband, comedian Justin McElroy. But sometimes they’ll have guest hosts; this particular episode has Sydnee’s sister Rileigh stepping in for Justin. And it’s right on time with the spooky. (Spoopy?)
To kick of October-ween, Sydnee and Rileigh did an “Aah, Real Monsters!” episode, and it’s fantastic. Synopsis!
This week on Sawbones, Sydnee and guest star Rileigh Smirl introduce you to the diseases at the root of some monsters myths.
Wanna know more about what kinds of things led people to believe in vampires, werewolves and more? Listen to it for yourself. Seriously, it’s not only a lot of fun, it’s science. SCIENCE!
