Body Stuff with Dr. Jen Gunter

by TED

Should I do a juice cleanse? Do I really need 8 glasses of water a day? Is it actually possible to "boost" my immune system? You’re constantly bombarded with news stories, ads, and social media posts telling you how to optimize your health—but a lot of these sources that pretend to be backed by science have another agenda. Dr. Jen Gunter is here to bust the lies you’re told—and sold—about your health, debunking some of the stickiest myths out there while helping you to understand how your body really works. Produced in partnership with Transmitter Media.

    Helpful and informative
    I love how you dispel myths in this podcast.
  • Wendyntommy
    More please!
    I am enjoying your podcasts! I listened to while I’m working and have learned a lot.
  • Cooees
    Extremely informative, Love how you take all the false information out and laid out straight!
    Love your podcast can’t wait to hear more!!
  • Wolvocarlo
    More stuff for men please!
    I love listening to your no-nonsense approach to so many topics. You’ve already debunked several of my assumptions about nutrition, sleep, and aging. I’d enjoy more topics for men and about fitness and aging.

    Good content, just look past the cheesiness
    Yes, Dr. Gunter speaks in a childish voice. Yes, the music is cheesy. Yes, those things are distracting enough that I took a whole star off my rating. But if you focus on what Dr. Gunter is actually saying (rather than harping on the way she says it), you’ll find that her content is really informative and interesting. I’ve learned something in every episode so far, even episodes about topics I thought I knew a lot about. Women are so often unfairly judged for their presentation, voice, cadence, etc. in a way that men are not. I hope you can join me in looking past these aspects of Dr. Gunter's podcast so you can enjoy her great work!

    Good Stuff!!
    Thank you Dr. J for providing a rationale counter narrative to all the online insanity. Please consider doing shows on: aging males and the prostate, gluten, and feet. Thanks for the dedication to your profession and integrity.
  • RB✨
    Patronizing tone
    I’ve learned a lot from this podcast, but the tone of the host is really off-putting for me. It kind of sounds like she’s talking to the audience like we’re young children. I don’t think this is intentional at all. It’s unfortunate.
  • -Real-Reviews
    Love the content hate the pre/postamble
    Great content the world needs. Thank you. Please cut out all the 45-60 seconds of credits and thanks and fluff at the end especially but sometimes at the beginning also. Regular listeners don’t need to hear that every episode. Thanks
  • MikDaddyD
    Educational and fun!
    I just randomly came across this podcast, it is so educational but she still makes it fun/funny. I drive several hours a week for work and this is perfect to keep me focused!
  • Koshaugh57
    Stuff people need to know!
    I listened to the podcast about sleep. I’ve been struggling with insomnia since working the night shift years ago and menopause. I have tried many different things to help me stay asleep, since I usually don’t have a problem getting to sleep. Lots of good ideas here.
  • Oxnutes48
    Excellent information!
    I love this show, entertaining and informative!!
  • Rose in Iowa
    Good information!
    I love hearing fact-based truth!
  • Al_V_KC
    Loved the episode!
    Dr. Gunter,I just found your show and listen to one of the first episodes about water.It was great information and I loved the wayYou presented it.I do have one asked that I would make of you as your listener.When you were speaking about your patients you used the pronoun “she”.I understand that you are a gynecologist and your patients are, likely, predominantly folks that identify with the pronoun “she”.However, there are lots of folks out there, including myself, that see a gynecologist and use other pronouns such as “they”.Whenever possible using gender inclusive pronouns is much appreciated.I look forward to listening to more episodes!
  • Ohio Vick
    Season 2
    Glad Body Stuff is back. I missed learning about our bodies & Dr Gunter’s communication skills makes it easy to understand. Thank you! 😀
  • The Critical Consumer
    Some ok medical info, could do without the sexism and racism tones throughout
    The medical info is good, though the supporting data and rationale is often sparse and leads me to question the validity. My main issue is that every episode seems to find a reason to hate on men or on white people. Granted, there are inequities and white men have been probably contributed to those over time. But in the skin episode, Jen claims the reason for higher maternal mortality in black women is only racism. That is just patently untrue.
  • MangoTheGoat
    Premise is great but this is terrible
    I like the premise of the show and a doctor explaining medical things in everyday language who “shows their work” by backing up what they’re saying. Jen talks as though kindergarteners are listening. There is music played over her speaking which makes it very difficult to hear her words and they’re just distracting and pointless. Some of the subjects for shows sound good but she wanders off topic too much. She really lost me when she said not all women ever had ovaries and not everyone with ovaries is a woman. She’s a gynecologist and that just was baffling. That there lessens the believability of anything else she says.
  • *~*Kellz*~*
    Wish there were more!
    It’s so hard to sift through the mass amount of pseudoscience that’s out there these days, it’s nice to hear some scientifically backed info given by experts!
  • Bi'i
    Loves it!
    This pod is so dope! Sorry I’m aging myself with my slang— oooh that’d be a great topic: Aging! How we never stop changing, physiologically. All of this to say, please come back!!! We need another season stat 🩺
  • 🐓🦎
    Great show
    I really have enjoyed the episodes and have learned a lot that I didn’t know. It’s amazing how much about my own body that I never learned in my health or biology classes. Can’t wait for the next season!

    Jen Gunter Body Stuff
    Absolutely delightful to listen to and so very informative!! More please!
    Have to wade through all these biases about the stupid people who buy all the things natural. As if all science agreed they were stupid. I’m pretty sure we’re all stupid in some way, but seriously…I wanted scientific information and education. Not info about who is and is not stupid.
  • Haneen76
    Amazing podcast!
    Why did it stop? 😣 we want more podcasts

    So well explained - with ramifications from the time of birth to the color of our skin, and how medicine treats our needs. Well done! Thank you!
  • AlaskaPuffin
    Your audience is adult … treat them as such
    GREAT info, terrific guests with even more great info BUT Dr. Gunter’s style of presentation … using tones & inflections suitable for children … DRIVES ME NUTS !!! IM an adult and I’ll believe the majority of the audience is an adult so please please please please please present material as though you are speaking to adults

    Menopause for “women”
    I had to stop listening when she gave the caveat that not all women have ovaries and not all people with ovaries are women. I’ve had enough of the woke.

    I have listened to every episode more than once and LOVE LOVE LOVE them all!

Absolutely can not wait for more episodes!

    Facts in a fun way!
    So informative and interesting to listen to. Appreciate the facts to combat soooo much misinformation about that is coming at us. These podcasts are like conversations I wish I could have with my doctor. Thank you for taking the time to make this podcast! I am encouraged and empowered!
  • NYtimes home
    Fun and factual - Love the audio editing
    With so much misinformation about health, it is great to have a podcast that is informational AND fun to listen to. And it episode II, POOPHORIA. it doesn’t get any better than that! Actually, it does. After the 4th episode, I am updating my review to add that I love the sound editing. It keeps the show moving and adds more color to the show than just having Dr Gunter and guests talk. Amazingly well produced podcast.

    I love it!
    I think that this podcast is a great source of information and that it talks about very important things like race, gender and misinformation so that normal people can understand. I definitely recommend it.
