Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine is a weekly, comedic medical podcast hosted by Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her husband, podcaster Justin McElroy. The show is distributed online by Maximum Fun.
In each episode, Sydnee discusses an element of historical medical practice, while Justin provides a comedic foil. The show normally focuses on antiquated medical practices that are unusual to modern listeners, but occasionally covers rare and unusual disorders and occurrences.
Sydnee and Justin McElroy had previously worked together on a short podcast series entitled Losing the Sheen, focused on watching Two and a Half Men. The show only lasted nine episodes before the two became tired of it, instead starting a medical podcast based on Sydnee's expertise. While developing the idea for the show, the McElroys decided that it would be irresponsible for them to give medical advice to listeners, even with Sydnee's background. They opted instead to focus on the historical aspects, which had been an interest of Sydnee's. Like other shows by the family, such as My Brother, My Brother and Me, Sawbones is distributed via the Maximum Fun network.
Sawbones has aired over 300 episodes with content on "medical history to uncover all the odd, weird, wrong, dumb and just gross ways we’ve tried to fix people over the years."
Sawbones has on occasion been performed live, such as the November 2nd, 2017 performance at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center in Huntington, WV.
In June 2018, a book adaptation of the podcast was announced, under the title The Sawbones Book: The Horrifying, Hilarious Road To Modern Medicine. Published by Weldon Owen, the book became available in October 2018. The book showed up in the top 10 Audible bestsellers for the week ending April 5, 2019. The book was illustrated by Sydnee's sibling, Teylor Smirl.
