Latest Episodes

All I Want for Christmas is Two New Base Pairs

Join Dan (@drusyniak) &Howard (@heshiegreshie) as they explore the world of gene editing with Dr. Jillian Theobald (@JillianTheobald). Dive deep into CRISPR and how it is revolutionizing the way we view the genome and what can be done with it, both good and bad. From Bristle blocks to genetic terrorism, it’s a warm hand-knit Holiday Snuggie for you to enjoy the end of the year. Happy Holidays from everyone here at Dantastic HQ! Delicious Links Here are a few videos that give an overview of CRISPR and how it works, including a TED talk from Jennifer Doudna who co-invented the technique. Here’s a great episode of Radiolab that also discusses CRISPR. Here’s Part 1 from 2015, and then the update from 2017. “It’s you, Daddy!” Bristle blocks, an indelible toy from childhood. How your morning yogurt revolutionized gene editing. CRISPR is a powerful tool. Many now see this easy-to-use technique as a threat to national safety. Or an uncertain future for humanity. While it can certainly be used nefariously, CRISPR can also help to determine the characterization of putative cancer genes. Or, you can build a better vaccine. Or cure a devastating neuromuscular disease like Duchenne muscular dystrophy? There’s a CRISPR for that. Some even try to build a better self by biohacking their genes. Whenever I read a story of self-experimentation, I always have to link to Who Goes First? The Story of Self-Experimentation in Medicine by Lawrence K. Altman. Got Mutation? Advanced gene editing can correct one base pair at a time. Even the tomatoes aren’t safe. How CRISPR is revolutionizing crops. Just because we can kill all the mosquitos, should we? Here are the most important gene editing stories of 2019. Special Thanks Thank you for your continued support. As always, we are looking for feedback - comments, questions, suggestions, recipes, etc. Let us know. Reach us at @toxandhound. We want to hear from you!

All I Want for Christmas is Two New Base Pairs

Am Vs Have

Join Dan (@drusyniak) &Howard (@heshiegreshie) as they set out to change the conversation about substance use with Bill Kinkle (@billkinkle). This one comes with a warning. We will discuss graphic descriptions of drug use, addiction behaviors and stigmatizing language. Help us to end the stigma associated with addiction. Take the pledge. We pledge to use compassionate, person-centered language when discussing a person with a substance use disorder, and to stop the stigma associated with addiction. Words matter. We pledge to use better ones. Delicious Links As we will continue to repeat over and over, words matter. There’s evidence that word choice impacts on recovery. Biased labels influence medical care and perceptions by health professionals, although it's not so clear for individuals in recovery. Dan is taller than Howard. Dan is better at podcasting. Therefore, taller people are better at podcasting. Think that those things are related? Well, maybe in this case, yes. But, you may be suffering from Berkson’s Bias (or Paradox) . . . Don't treat Berkson’s bias with Maslow's hammer . . . Decriminalization works. Just ask the Portuguese. Institutionalized racism and the war on drugs. Highlighting the analogy of diabetes, albeit in a tongue in cheek fashion. The Use of Insulin in the Treatment of Diabetes: An Analogy to Methadone Maintenance A really good twitter thread from Renee Johnson, looking for suggestions ways to addressmisperceptions about substance use. Safe injection sites. Another excellent tool in the battle. Why don't we approach substance use disorders like other illnesses with risk mitigation strategies and looking for the root causes? Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and social determinants of health may be the direction to follow. Learn more about the neurobehavioral underpinnings of addiction with Dr. Andy Chambers in one of our earlier episodes, Life Is a Highway (S01E07). A fascinating look by Maia Szalavitz at addiction that challenges the idea that it is a disease with a radical perspective. If you want more resources by people who are really good at this, check out Changing The Narrative. Special thanks to them for inspiring this episode. Listen to more of Bill at the Health Professionals in Recovery podcast. Or check out their website or twitter account (@ HPIRPodcast). Read moreof Bill’s story here. You really only need to watch this to understand. Narcan Saved my Daddy. Bill with his son Micah in the waiting room of a local urgent care. At the time of this photo, Bill was in acute opioid withdrawal, which negates the idea that people who use drugs don’t care about anything except drugs. Special Thanks Thank you for your continued support. As always, we are looking for feedback - comments, questions, suggestions, recipes, etc. Let us know. Reach us at @toxandhound. We want to hear from you! We love doing this podcast, and don’t want to stop (Dan . . . ) It takes a lot of time and effort to produce each episode. Like what you hear? Buy us a cup of coffee!

Join Dan (@drusyniak) &Howard (@heshiegreshie) as they get deep into the nephron with Dr. Josh King (@nephrotox). Gather round as we quote Homer Smith, learn why we have a heart (to pump blood to the kidneys, ‘natch), trigger Howard about lithium, and always remember to request the right dose of dialysis. Delicious Links The one, the only, Homer William Smith. "Superficially, it might be said that the function of the kidneys is to make urine; but in a more considered view, one can say that the kidneys make the stuff of philosophy itself." A great article that frames our discussion of how to define kidney injury, Han and Bonventre 2004 "This is analogous to beginning the treatment of patients with acute myocardial infarction 48–72 hours after the coronary occlusion." Here are the AKIN criteria for acute kidney injury And a nice review of biomarkers in acute kidney injury Learn about the signs and symptoms of dialysis disequilibrium syndrome and the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of hemodialysis emergencies. For the DIY crowd, the CKD-EPI equation and calculator (AKA where that GFR on the labs comes from) Dr. Mitch Halperin’s fantastic physiology study of toluene and why it doesn’t cause RTA . . . Nice review of Balkan endemic nephropathy (and aristolochic acid) The EXTRIP workgroup for extracorporeal treatment of poisoning Here’s the paper by Amdisen and Skjoldborg that showed lithium exiting the CSF in 1969 Here are some more Dad jokes if you didn’t get enough from this episode . . . and of course, this.

Delicious Links A brief history of Rock Medicine. Learn more about the Wall of Sound, “the largest, most technologically innovative sound system ever built”, and it’s inventor, Owsley Stanley.

Release the Kratom

Join Dan (@drusyniak) &Howard (@heshiegreshie) as they speak with Dr. Ed Boyer about therapies for opioid use disorder, including kratom, ibogaine, and loperamide. Great stuff, deep science and a dispelling of some myths while recognizing some less than savvy science out there. . . Looking forward to part 2, where we find that the dulcet tones of Dan and Howard are the right frequency to treat your blues.

Release the Kratom

Join Dan (@drusyniak) &Howard (@heshiegreshie) as they speak with Dr. Ed Boyer about therapies for opioid use disorder, including kratom, ibogaine, and loperamide. Great stuff, deep science and a dispelling of some myths while recognizing some less than savvy science out there. . .

Dan cleverly tricked Howard into being the foil for his live presentation. Enjoy a couple of turkey burgers as they discuss MDMA and other amphetamines, brown fat, fatigue and why Dan is going straight away to rat-hell. Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year from all of us at Mus Maximus. Delicious Links (or a brief preview of Dan’s CV . . . ) What area of the brain mediates exercise-induced fatigue and exhaustion? Very likely the dorsomedial hypothalamus (DMH). Just in case you were wondering, inhibition of the DMH decreases hyperthermia and mortality from MDMA given in a warm environment. But, you may ask, how does one go about suppressing the MDMA-evoked sympathetic and behavioral responses? Running on the treadmill,...
