The QuackCast by Mark Crislip
How I missed this podcast eludes me. QuackCast, as described by the podcast’s website is “A podcast review of Quacks, Frauds and Charlatans. Oops. Thats not right. That should be Supplements, Complementary and Alternative Medicine i.e. SCAM.”.
The podcast is the work of Mark Crislip MD. The QuackCast won the People’s Choice Podcast Awards in the health and fitness category from 2009-2011. Dr. Crislip was US News and World Report’s “Best US Physician” in 2012.
If you are a critical thinker who looks for scientific data to back up medical claims, you shall love this podcast. The podcast is relatively short in length and each episode covers a topic examining the real science behind it. Items such as the design of the experiment. The doctor of infectious disease and president of Society for Science-Based Medicine analyzes everything from leeches, echinacea, to hyperthermic treatments logically and with a science-based perspective. References are also listed on the website.
