   The Podcast...

Ethical Side Effects is a weekly podcast for the science nerds who are undercover crime addicts. This podcast was created to not only give those with an interest in medicine another type of crime fix,  but to bring awareness to what the standard care of medicine should be: "do no harm". Although the field of medicine has made quite the stride in recent decades, there is no doubt that medical mistakes and malpractice can still go, shall we say, "untreated". Whether these malpractice cases are due to innocent human error, lack of proper medical advancements, or plain maliciousness and bias, Lillee and TJ want to explore why these complications are still so common. As aspiring physicians, they also wanted to bring you along for the ride as they learn more about the side of  healthcare that no one ever talks about, as well as tell the many stories of those who have been wronged by the healthcare system.
