Medical Myths – Now Available

About a year ago I asked my readers and SGU listeners to send me suggestions about medical myths they would like to hear debunked. Now I get to reveal what project that was for – I was asked to record a course series for The Teaching Company. The final result is now available:

Medical Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths: What We Think We Know May Be Hurting Us

This is a series of 24 lectures, each 30 minutes long, on a variety of medical topics. It is available in audio (CD or download) and video (DVD) format. This was a year-long project, and contains a great deal of new material I have never written or lectured about before.

I had known about the Teaching Company before and listened to a few of their audio lectures. But of course I really got to know the company well through this process. They produce an excellent series of college-type courses meant for adult learners. Their production process is impressive – I feel they helped me bring my best content to the lectures. I do most of my work without a net, so it was fun to work with someone to help edit my content.

I am already discussing future projects with the company. Hopefully I can get them to do a hardcore skeptical/critical thinking course. If you do purchase my course please take the time to leave a review. They really matter. Also, feel free to suggest course topics or specific content you would like to see me cover in a future project.
