The Philadelphia Podcast Festival is upon us once again, and along with a variety of funny, educational, and niche podcasts, our city is being graced with the presence of Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin of the McElroy Brothers family of products!
If you’re a listener of any other Maximum Fun podcasts like The Flophouse, Judge John Hodgman, or Bullseye, you’re likely familiar with Sawbones. The marital tour of misguided medicine explores the bizarre, disturbing, and often hilarious ways people have tried to fix each other in the past. Sydnee and Justin discuss everything from eating dirt and lobotomies to why we once thought goat testicle implants sounded like a good idea.
Sawbones is one of many McElroy podcasts, including My Brother, My Brother and Me, The Adventure Zone, Shmanners, and Rose Buddies. If you’re a fan of any of their other shows—or simply think a medical history podcast hosted by two very funny and engaging hosts sounds interesting—I definitely recommending giving them a listen and checking them out at the Philadelphia Podcast Festival.
