      You’re awfully kind for saying so. I wasn’t too happy with this one. I was still pretty under the weather. I think the episode that releases tomorrow morning will be a lot of fun, though. :)

    A truly great episode. All of the cultural ones are loads of fun but I like this one especially due to the fact that I study Nursing. Nontheless, good job and thank you for this amazing podcast.

    Two comments (so far).
    1. Cupping (without cutting the skiin) is considered an effective medicine.
    2. We do blood letting today, its called donating blood and for men (who don’t go through menstrual cycles) it is a good practice (bi-annually) because it makes the body replenish iron in the blood (that’s from what I heard from a doctor recently)
