Corbin Weaver, Cole Cheney, Taz Khalid and Tony Rosenberg educate Dave on Snapchat.  Technology: scary!  We confront the limits and future of antibiotics as we hear about the new E. coli bug that’s immune from all of them.  We discuss how YOU can set up your own medical office, and get all your equipment from good ol’ Amazon. Corbin is on her psychiatry rotation, and it’s turning out to be a reflective time for her, especially as it relates to how we treat people with psychiatric disorders.

Also, does perceived femininity in a scientist erroneously signal an unsuitability for STEM? And Dave, being very concerned about dental health and its effects on overall health, wants to improve the frequency of brushing by adding savory to the range of toothpaste flavors.  The crew is happy to test out the recipes Dave came up with.  In this case, “happy” is a very relative term.
