Fingers on buzzers! It’s the first (and possibly last) episode of What’s in a Name: Medical Edition! Join host Jonathan and his three contestants in figuring out the origin of common words used in biology and medicine! It’s fun, we swear!


In the hot seat: social media manager Melissa, medical resident Niko, and cardiologist Chris!


Who will win? Who will lose? Will their egos recover? Do points even matter? What are the rules again? You’ll hear about biceps, botulism, and that disease that got its name from a really old poem!


It’s What’s in a Name: Medical Edition!


Recorded in late December, 2021.
