The Deadly Dose

Science #209Chemistry #3

A pharmacist and her longtime friend walk into a bar. What emerges is a dotty little science podcast, with a taste for toxicology. Poisons, medical mysteries, political assassinations, healing rituals, environmental disasters, pandemics & more - nothing is off the lab table here. This is the science of storytelling at its finest.

    I find it hard to trust even scientists who hold delusional beliefs.
    Why all the giggling?
    Stop giggling, it distracts from interesting content.

    Great chemistry
    I am so grateful I found this randomly - Harini and Megan are extremely smart, funny, savvy, and a great hang. They serve a perfect mix of science, history, pop culture, and banter. Entertaining and informative.

    At first sight appeared to cover in depth topics that could be informative and educational. Instead it is just millennial ego centric lack of self awareness whining

    Show review
    Love the show all around. You guys are hilarious and I can tell that you are doing this for the simple joy as opposed to just a mundane task. As a pure pharmacology and toxicology enthusiast I was a little disappointed that you didn’t spend so much time on those subject in the story of course that’s based on three or four episodes I’ve listened to thus far. Keep up the phenomenal work I look forward to your future episodes and I hope this show will go on for decades and centuries to come.

    It’s in the facts
    These two women bring the fact to the fictions. Explaining toxicology reports and diving into the psychological and scientific explanations behind unfathomable horrors that have haunted us for years. So if you are a true crime lover with an interest in deadly tonics, this is the show for you!

    Quirky Pod
    I really like this podcast. It’s full of fun science and history tidbits (almost feels like a murder mystery at times). Very quirky podcast that I enjoy. 5/5

    Unique podcast toxicology & crimes
    I really enjoy the unique aspect of adding a toxicology report and breakdown to different crimes. There are so many murder and crime podcasts out there nowadays that they can seem repetitive, but these fantastic ladies add a really interesting spin to it.

    Love this podcast!!
    This is such an interesting and refreshing take on the millions of overdone true crime podcasts out there. This podcast talks about stories where the poison or toxin is the suspect - super cool! The hosts have great chemistry and fun banter. As a fellow pharmacist I love the toxicology and science. Keep up the great work ladies!!
