Non-expert on non-topic

My brother Harris, who's a physician in California, has started a podcast in which he interviews people he knows about random things having to do with medicine. In this episode, he interviews me about medical procedures used in movies that don't actually work in real life. For example, using heat or fire to cauterize an open wound (see "Rambo III," "Star Trek: Beyond," "The Revenant," any light saber film, etc.), which is usually presented as stopping bleeding and infection, but would most likely just lead to more pain and death.

As I'm neither a doctor nor a filmmaker, I have no expertise here at all, but we had a good time with it, and I do reference Station Eleven.

  1. Awesome! That's the most thought anyone has put into Herbie the Love Bug in at least 40 years. Possibly 50.
