Electroconvulsive Therapy: This Will Come as a Shock
Welcome back from another break! We've learned that as life is returning more to normal, our free time is not. So we are trying to make up for lack of frequency by providing content with real Shock value! This week we discuss ECT, also known as Shock Therapy, and discuss the movies Requiem for a Dream, A Beautiful Mind, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Shock therapy may have a bad rap, but we want to keep the good raps coming, so thanks for listening and providing suggestions!

Back Pain: Except Much More Exciting
Welcome to the episode Nick has been waiting for. We tried to make a boring old back pain episode, including a discussion about a Simpsons episode, but this thing got a little out of control. We had a special request to do a breakdown of There's Something About Mary, and while this movie has lots of back pain issues, it also has...a lot of other medical mishaps. And we pull no punches discussing them. So sit back, relax, and enjoy our newest episode - which almost needed an explicit tag!

Space Medicine: We Don't Really Know Anything About This
You thought we had done all possible environmental medicine subjects, didn't you? Altitude medicine, check. Arctic medicine, check. Deep water medicine, check. But I bet you didn't think of Space Medicine! We promise it's a thing. Just not one we know much about. But we do have fun discussing Total Recall and Apollo 13, and we think you'll have fun coming along for the ride and listening to our vacuum of knowledge on the subject!

Vaccines: Not Throwin' Away My Shot
This week we wanted to do a podcast about vaccines, and watched Doc Hollywood thinking it had a scene about vaccines. It didn't. That's what you get when you rely on google! And this is what you get this week: vaccine talk surrounding the movie "World War Z," and then just random medicine commentary about various Doc Hollywood scenes. And we don't regret it one bit.

Scars, Allergies and TB: Prepping the Oscars!
Cinema's great excuse to party is right around the corner! And I'm not talking about Adam and Nick's birthdays, although those are here too. The Academy awards are a fun time for movie shows like ours to take a close look at this year's contenders, and past winners and losers. We took this opportunity to discuss the medicine depicted in past winners, including Unforgiven and Parasite. Then we deep dive into a discussion on which Best Picture winners were most and least deserving. Enjoy!

Proof that we're here to tackle the most controversial of issues, welcome to the episode where we discuss what marijuana does and doesn't do, and why movies that are all about weed are so dang funny. We break down 3 cult classics: "Dazed and Confused," "Pineapple Express," and "Friday." And Adam tells some stories, coming to you straight from legalized Oregon. You'll want to hear these.

Frostbite and Hypothermia: My Cold, Frozen Heart Will Go On
All things cold. Just what you were looking forward to this winter, right? We delve into the movie Titanic, and have a heated (or cooled) discussion about the temperature of ocean water. We also throw in an episode of Seinfeld! And a few other movies you probably haven't seen, but should see. Like Frozen (no, not THAT Frozen, the other one), and Arctic. Listen in and learn about the treatment of hypothermia, and what to do with those frozen toes.

Hearing Loss and Tinnitus: A Hum in the Drum
Today is Nick's first born son's rapping debut and you are all the first to hear it! Speaking of hearing, we hope this episode brings some awareness of what it means to have adult onset hearing loss and tinnitus. This is possibly our favorite movie lineup so far. We start with Baby Driver, then discuss A Star Is Born, and finish up with Sound of Metal. If you haven't seen these three movies, put them on your list!

We also discuss the excellent movie "Radioactive." Learn answers to questions like "why do radioactive things glow blue-green?" and "what would a nuclear fallout do to my skin?" and "should I worry about a dirty bomb?" and "what are the northern lights?" and a million other questions you never knew you had. Be ready to grow your brain.

Transplants: My Heart (and Face) Will Go On
Transplant medicine is pretty dang complicated, but not if you're Nic Cage and John Travolta and in the need of a new face! Or if you're Denzel and want to take a hospital hostage! This week we discuss face transplants in the ridiculous crazy Face/Off. We also talk heart transplants using John Q and 21 Grams as backdrops. Buckle up because this discussion gets wild. Also, be an organ donor!

This week's episode has our first ever special guest! Big welcome to Nikki Frederick, who provides invaluable insight into the life of a type one diabetic as we discuss the disease with the backdrop of some true classic movies.

Sports Injuries: Hands Shoulders Knees and Blows
This week, Justin successfully cajoled Adam and Nick into discussing some of his favorite sports movies, including Warrior, which is the best sports movie ever made (not up for debate). So naturally, this is the best podcast episode ever made (up for debate). We talk shoulder dislocations, broken hands and forearms, and ACL tears. And Carlos Boozer. Sorry, Carlos.

Crazy For Swayze: Ultimate Patrick Fan Episode!
Welcome back from the holiday break! We decided to do a special episode for Nick and dedicate an entire hour plus to his hero and idol, the one and only Patrick Swayze. We get a little lost in the discussion about such classics as Dirty Dancing, Road House, and Point Break. Also, don't get shot in the chest with a shotgun, it doesn't end well.

Home Alone + Christmas Vacation: Christmas Special Edition!!!
Welcome to your special bonus holiday episode! For this Christmas bonus, we decided to break down some of the injuries to Chevy Chase and Joe Pesci in the Christmas classics Christmas Vacation and Home Alone. Overall, Joe Pesci gets the worst of things. In fact, we aren't sure he would have survived if Home Alone worked a little harder on realism. But come listen and decide for yourself!
