Back in 1917 radium was all the rage. The fact that it glowed made people believe it was healthy and important, so they included it in things like toothpaste, cosmetics, even water. The Radium Girls, factory workers who used radium-laced paints to detail watch faces, were among the first to indicate that it may not be as safe as we imagined. Charli…
 
What’s the deal with vomiting? Justin and Dr. Sydnee meditate on the various ways we get nauseated, from smelling something gross to getting hit in a sensitive spot, and what we’ve done over the years to help alleviate it. Although sometimes kids just vomit for no reason and we can’t really help you there. Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers https:…
 
We’re back with Sawbones Medical Questions! Justin acts as stand-in for the listeners while Dr. Sydnee answers questions about tall people getting COVID, eye goop, nose goop, labor organizing in the medical field, and corn in poop. This one’s for the Sawboners. Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers https://taxpayers.bandcamp.com/…
 
You may be worried we’re headed into another global health crisis in the form of Monkeypox. But it’s not new, and we already know quite a bit about it. Dr. Sydnee explains what it is, how to treat it, and the recommendations at the moment from the CDC, all compared to COVID (which is now unfortunately our standard for how to relate to potential pub…
 
It's yet another super influential media moment from the younger years of the older Smirl siblings that's been rebooted for the modern age: it's Chip and Dale! Sydnee and Teylor both had STRONG feelings about this one back in the day (most specifically about Gadget) so of course we had to revisit the reboot. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by No…
 
With the recent news about Roe v. Wade, it’s important to talk about the history of abortion in the United States. The right to autonomy over one’s own body in regard to medical care is one of the basic tenets of medical ethics; but no matter what anyone personally believes, banning abortion doesn’t stop abortion. It just makes it unsafe. Music: "M…
 
It was the multiplayer video game experience that defined the younger years of the older Smirl siblings, complete with such classic bits as DK mode and slappers only: it's Goldeneye! (Those GRAPHICS though...) CW: This video game is a first person shooter game, meaning there is brief mention of video game violence/guns. Music: "Baby You Change Your…
 
The United States is currently in a dire formula shortage, and people are taking to the internet to propose some less than ideal solutions. Dr. Sydnee talks about the origins of how formula came about, how the shortage came about, and why people on the internet are wrong. And just in case you miss the message: do NOT try to make your own formula. M…
 
Rileigh felt a need to introduce her siblings to a movie she watched incessantly with friends in high school, neglecting to remember just how ridiculously sad it is, so she's sorry about that. Also, discussion on weird British party games takes up a good amount of this episode, so buckle in. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas…
 
Harry Beno (not BEAN-o) one day walked into a barn hungry for biscuits and emerged the poison king. Believing himself immune to strychnine, Beno took to eating poison for an audience. From there his act escalated to the next logical step, hammering nails into his head and burying himself alive. Justin and Dr. Sydnee tell the story of “Beno the Wond…
 
Even though Sydnee brought this one to the table, it's a movie that the Smirl siblings have long associated with their mom, and there are a lot of reasons why. So, to celebrate only one week until Mother's Day AND MaxFunDrive, let's talk about Cher! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by NouvellasBy Rileigh Smirl, Sydnee McElroy, Teylor Smirl
 
Some people believe that men in the world are getting softer and masculinity is under attack. But not to worry, there’s a solution: tanning your . . . nethers. Although the idea of exposing your soft bits to the sun may be embarrassing, there's also, as Dr. Sydnee explains, zero evidence that it's beneficial. Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers htt…
 
Teylor is always introducing their sisters to cool, meaningful, and just overall really good stuff from their life, and this week is certainly no different. This album was new to Sydnee and Rileigh, while packing a whole lot of meaning for our middle sibling, so come check it out with us! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas…
 
A very long time ago, in 2019, we talked about the Corrupted Blood plague, a pandemic within the World of Warcraft. How it affected the digital world was used as a model for how people might behave during an actual real-life pandemic. Well . . . we’ve got that real-life pandemic now. So how did it actually play out (and is still playing out) versus…
