Dispelling nutrition myths, ranting, and occasionally, raving

Follow Friday: BS Medicine Podcast



I used to be a big fan of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe Podcast. I love listening to podcasts on long runs. However, their tone has really turned me off. It’s one thing to be right about stuff, and understandable to get annoyed with misinformation (not that I would know anything about that, no, nope, not I), and a whole other thing to be condescending jerks about it. Cue Best Science Medicine Podcast (thanks to my friend Emma for telling me about it). It’s a Canadian podcast that shares recent scientific research and developments in an accessible way. James McCormack and Michael Allan try to present the information in an interesting and entertaining manner. Well worth checking out on your run, commute, or whenever else you listen to podcasts.
