This is one of the best medical podcasts out there, funny and informative and incredibly entertaining. The cohosts clearly enjoy their work and each other, and share that with the audience. So glad I stumbled on this one! Subscribed about 2 min into the first episode.

Entertaining and informative!

Love this podcast! I just ran a half marathon and usually listen to music when I run. I took a chance and listened to “This Won’t Hurt a Bit” instead and it didn’t disappoint! I was smiling, laughing and making grossed out faces as I ran! It made the miles and time fly by! So glad I found this one!

Great show!

I love this show! The hosts are really funny and the medical topics are very interesting. I’ve learned quite a bit of new information just from listening to a few episodes. Shout out to whoever does the sound effects - they’re hilarious!

How did I never find this before?

This is a really fun podcast. Even if you have no medical background you're going to love it.And with a tiny bit of science background you'll love it even more!

Informative and gross (in a good way!)

I just discovered this podcast, and I’m so happy to be able to catch up on all the episodes. The hosts are wonderful and the content is really interesting. Sometimes it makes me cringe and sometimes it makes me laugh, but it’s always engaging.

This is one of my favorite podcasts. It is very informative, and talks about interesting topics that you may not learn about elsewhere. They do a good job at explaining everything in a way you can understand while not dumbing it down too much. Their listeners are intelligent people and they treat them as such. Much appreciated. I can't wait for more episodes!

Love it

What Sawbone Wish It Were

by snpkvp214 on Jun 18, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

This won't hurt a bit is a fantastic podcast that discusses topics in health and medicine. The hosts are informative, funny and easy to listen to. I binge-listened to the entire first season and now I am having withdrawal symptoms. I hope it becomes so successful it is on weekly or biweekly. I used to listen to Sawbones but found Justin so irritating with his attempts at humor that I had to stop. Sawbones has interesting topics and I likey Sydney, but I just couldn't do Justin anymore. I missed my medical explanation fix though and now I have found it with the perfect balance of humor and education. PLEASE, PLEASE HURRY with Season Two.

We need more! When are they coming?

My wife and I binged through the entire first season in about three days. She was medical anthropology major and I myself am a financial analyst and despite our incredibly different educational backgrounds we both got a lot out of the series as well as had a ton of fun listening to them. I highly recommend it. Can't wait for season 2!

This is a great podcast

I started listening to Mel on and wrap and my husband was always interested in and wrap as well because of the entertaining quality of the show. When this came out we started listening to the whole thing together. We love it! There's something in it for both of us. I highly recommend this podcast it's one of my favorites.

I was shocked with the production value of this podcast from the first episode. The medical content is amazing and the mixing of first-hand experience of two docs with rotating experts is a great combo. Dave rocks too as the "everyman", asking the questions I'd want to ask.

Fantastic Listens

I listen to the emrap podcast in addition to this and I find this won't hurt a bit to be just as entertaining and useful in clinical practice. I have used concepts and explanations from this in patient education. Plus it is a great way to spend the long car rides to and from shifts

My brother is an ER Doctor and recommended this podcast. I am very particular and really haven’t found anything I loved as much as Stuff You Should Know, but then I listened to this podcast and it was AWESOME!! I am learning real world stuff, entertained the entire time, and laugh a lot. What more could you ask for right? Truly worth listening to. I started yesterday and finished the last one this morning. So good!

Great podcast by great people!

This is a really engaging podcast. I studied biology in college, but work in tech now. I listen to this on my commutes. Please continue to keep making these! There aren’t many good medical podcasts out there, and you guys nailed it. Looking forward to more content. Love it.

Entertaining, informative, and thrilling! So far This Won't Hurt A Bit has become my new favorite Podcast to listen to. I am a student on my way to Medical School and I currently working as an EMT. Since I have a background and future in medicine and specifically emergency medicine, I find the topics discussed in this podcast awesome. I would suggest this to anyone interested in medicine, emergency medicine, health, or just interested in learning a thing or two about what makes your body the miracle that it is. Keep the podcasts coming. Can't wait to hear what is next!

I've always been interested in medicine and this strikes a great balance between storytelling and providing interesting medical facts/info in a way any layman can understand. The hosts all have actual personality and charisma that keeps you engaged throughout.I'm just sad I discovered the show so early and only have a few episodes to listen to. I'm already craving more content with this sort of format. Great stuff if you have any sort of interest or curiosity about medicine.

It really won’t hurt!
