018 - Lyme Disease and Veritasium

Image of a majestic forest

An ill-judged nature hike leads to a conversation about Lyme disease, both the acute infection and the claimed chronic disease.

Plus: an interview with Derek "Veritasium" Muller on pseudoteaching, not fooling yourself, and parenting.

Also: Hate mail, funny medical codes, #SpoonGate, and the low-fat option.

Jingle by Jillian Kate.

Additional music by Kevin MacLeod.

Theme music: "Troll of the Mountain Swing" by the Underscore Orkestra.
