Strange Daze is a bi-weekly podcast from the creators of Straight Talk MD, hosted by anesthesiologist Frank Sweeny. Each episode fuses narrative storytelling with science as our host examines a real case of a surgery or a procedure that went terribly wrong and dissects out why. Even the best doctors practicing at the best medical institutions make mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes have serious consequences. And sometimes, even when you do everything right, things can still go terribly wrong. The most cynical surgeons depict anesthesiology as 99% boredom and 1% sheer terror. Strange Daze is about the 1%.

Straight Talk to Storytelling
I love tuning in to Straight Talk MD and I'm so excited about their new storytelling podcast! I can't wait to hear these anesthesia-gone-wrong cases!
Was having withdrawals - glad your back
Couldn’t turn it off!
The Dr. can sure tell a story. I’m not in the medical field but just had a child and I reached my destination before the end and had to finish the last 10 minutes in the parking lot with the car idling. I didn't know what was going to happen, I didn't want to know what was going to happen fearing the worst but could not turn it off. Haven't been that anxious since Breaking Bad!
