Pertussis! Pertussis! Pertussis!

Anyone who heard Anthony on O&A today may have questions about Pertussis (Whooping Cough) and their risk of contracting it. Here’s some information:

Pertussis is caused by the bacterium Bordetella Pertussis and it is highly contagious. Children are vaccinated against it (the famous “DPT” or Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus vaccine) but a lot of doctors forget to vaccinate their adult patients, assuming this is a childhood disease.

From the CDC: “Since the 1980s, there’s been an increase in the number of cases of pertussis, especially among preteens and teens (10–19 years of age) and babies younger than 6 months of age. In 2010, …

Casting call: The Opie and Anthony Channel HBO series

Every once in awhile I think about how an O&A movie or Tee Vee show would look.   If the boys didn’t play themselves, who on Earth could do it?  Then I watched “Sons of Anarchy” and realized the show had already done the casting for me.  Here’s how I think the producers of SOA would cast “Spreading the Virus: The Opie and Anthony Story” for Lifetime Television:

Finally! A Technique for Penis “Enlargement” that May Actually Work

From BodyODD:

“Package deal: Injections make penis grow, study finds

By Dr. Tony Youn
Does penis size matter?

A group of researchers from Korea University apparently believes it does, considering they discovered a way to make it happen

They recently published a study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine that analyzed how injections of a hyaluronic acid filler (Restylane Sub-Q) could increase penile girth.  These physicians injected an average of 20.5 cc (about  two-thirds of a medicine cup) using “a back-and-forth technique” into the deep soft tissue layers of the penises of 50 men.  The product was then ‘homogenized with a roller.’

The men’s penises had …

Missing Patrice O’Neal

From Weird Medicine (Excerpted for the Patrice Tribute this weekend on Sirius 206, XM105):

“As I write this, I just got word that Patrice O’Neal has passed away.

I met Patrice at Opie’s wedding and the first thing I noticed about him was just what a sweet guy he was.   ‘Sure Doctor Steve, I’ll do your little show’…I always thought we had all the time in the world to have that conversation on the air about Diabetes and being in show business.  Lesson learned.

Patrice was a big hearted guy;  Chest Pain Rob reminded me today …

Weird Medicine Addendum Sept 24: Post Beer Fest Edition

Well, we made the mistake of going to a Beer Fest and carried the party to the house afterward.  Then someone said “hey!  Let’s do a show!”  See if you can tell whether some people (certainly not me) were impaired during the taping of this podcast.

Tonight’s topics:

1) Supraluminal Neutrinos
2) Breast Reduction Surgery
3) The connection between your belly button and your genitals
4) The causes of dry mouth
5) A guy bleeding from both ends
6) e cigarettes and smoking cessation
7) Weird Chantix Dreams

and a bunch of other malarkey.

We were featured in the Stitcher.com weekly newsletter this week and this is the best we …

Weird Medicine August 11 2011 LIVE Podcast Part 1

Weird Medicine Addendum returns, now on Stitcher and iTunes.  If you haven’t checked out Stitcher yet, it’s a really cool on-demand radio service for your smart phone.  The app has low-overhead and there’s virtually NO lag unless you just have a crappy connection.   After you listen to Weird Medicine, check out The Joe Rogan Experience and other cool stuff.

I’m breaking this show into two 30 minute podcasts just to see if people like it better in small chunks.  I still have such a low self-esteem that I can’t imagine anyone would want to listen to AN HOUR …

This was our second attempt at a LIVE show from the Weird Medicine studios and our first try with our own Ustream channel. Thanks to Anthony Cumia’s retweet on twitter, we set all kinds of records for listeners this night…a feat we’ll not repeat soon (unless we can convince Ant to retweet us again when we’re on).

The weird thing about this is that I was actually nervous going into this.  Knowing that there are real, live people listening and wanting to interact with us is way different than answering voicemails and doing a show to 4 people in the …

After we did the 30 minute podcast, the Ustream listeners wanted to get involved so we experimented with taking some LIVE calls. It actually went better than I thought and we talked about gout and some other stuff and even got a call from Lady Trucker (who stumped us).

WE WILL GET BETTER AT THIS. The technology for taking live calls and streaming live isn’t new, but it’s new to us. We had a blast interacting with our friends online, though, and will do a lot more of this as time goes on.

So glitches and all, …
