This podcast is about strange medicine. I will use my experience as an ER nurse to explore the world of medicine. True Crime, coroners cases, medical mysteries, bizarre treatments from around the world, scary diseases and medical breakthroughs. Real life stories from the Emergency Room. Sometimes it's the cure that kills you!

Thank you!!! Really really THANK YOU!!

So I work night shift and tonight on my way to work I realize I have a freakin mouse in my vehicle (I live in the middle of nowhere Montana USA) I drive approx 30 miles both ways to and from work. I was stressing the entire 12 hour shift about my ride home and how I was gonna deal with it! I know, I know...it’s only a mouse!! Well I finally get the courage to start my vehicle to warm it up bcuz it’s snowing like crazy out. Long story short I put my headphones in turned ur taintlishious podcast on and before I knew it I was home and I laughed most of the way!! Thank you for distracting me from the killer mouse in my glove compartment and maybe even saving my life 😉!! Keep these coming ladies!! You ladies are hilarious and have great chemistry with ur storytelling abilities!!! Thanks again!!!

The BEST

Seriously one of the best podcasts out there. I LOVE true medical stories and these are done respectfully and with care, and often with a little humor (suture room!) and maybe not even not enough gore lol. The respect and research for mental illness is incredible. I just wish there were more episodes for me to binge!!! But I know there will be! Can’t wait!

Love it!

You are awesomely objective and subjective in all the right places. So informative but it wouldn’t work without your caring heart. I am a nursing student and so happy to have found this podcast to get me through exam to exam!

Real talk

I really enjoy your podcast when you are interacting with someone. Also, when you are just telling stories. I don’t care for the narrator part of the podcast. It feels like you are just reading a book out loud or article of some sort. Btw Erica sounds hot. Is she?

So interesting

I can’t stop listening. The dr freedman/lobotomy series was fascinating. Can’t wait to get into 2018-19. I’ve been a nurse for 14 years so I really enjoy the suture room. Some of our stories Sound like fiction but as a nurse I can tell you I have an interesting story every shift. Keep up the episodes coming.

Good material... host is a little much

I really like the content of STAT but the host is a little over the top at times- tries to make jokes that just don’t get laughs, etc.

One of my favorites

This is one of my favorites. I feel like I know Karen. She puts so much of herself into each episode. She is funny, and down to earth. Love it. I’m so glad there’s a few new episodes.

Love this podcast!

I absolutely love listening to all your podcast episodes. The hardcore ER episodes are my favorite!!!! You have had so many different and interesting experiences while working as an RN. Thank you so much for all the care you have given to others and thank you for sharing those pieces of your life. It can’t be easy to relive some of those difficult memories and experiences. I can’t wait until you release a new episode. - P.S. watching you on an episode of Haunted Hospitals on Tru Tv!

Informative and Entertaining

Karen does a great job with research and story telling. She is definitely passionate about medicine, nursing, and treating people with compassion. She tackles difficult subject material, but does so with humanity. I especially appreciate her educating listeners and advocating for those with mental health struggles.

The content is interesting

... but that’s it. The storytelling itself is very dry. The host editorializes the content quite a bit (inserting her own opinions and more colorful language into the story), but not in an amusing or entertaining way. There are so many awkward pauses even in the suture room segments that it makes me wonder whether she has even read the script before. Even the personal anecdotes are told in a very halting, awkward manner. It is also very easy to tell when she goes off-script onto her own tangent. Additionally, she says she is a nurse but she often seems very uncomfortable with explaining medical terminology and processes and sometimes does so inaccurately. I suspect some of the 5-star reviews come from people who the host knows personally.

Great info - so interesting!

The host puts a lot of research into each episode, and also is fiercely passionate about the subject matter. Her own experience as an ER Nurse really shines through. I’ve had a lot of fun listening
