Episode 28- This week we stay on the topic of medicine, but the species is a bit different as we delve into veterinary medicine with UK equine vet Naomi Mellor. While some of the terms & concepts may be similar, Naomi proves the old adage, “a whole different animal” really rings true when treating horses compared to humans.

Episode 26-  Storytelling is a powerful part of human culture as clearly evidenced by the power of podcasts particularly this one, which focuses on medical anecdotes to both entertain & inform. However, the emotional response of anecdotes can be used to spread misinformation & create harm when used to contradict evidence based medicine by anti-vaccine or so called “alternative medicine” advocates.

Lucky for us, Dr. Jonathon Howard, a neurologist & psychiatrist, who has written a book on critical thinking & cognitive biases in medicine joins the podcast this week to explain why are brains like stories & how that can be used against us.
