AUDACIOUS MYTHS: Testosterone, Pain, and Brown Recluse Spiders
The older I get, the more excited I am to be corrected when I’m wrong.
Sure, it may sting for a second because hearing someone say “actually…” can be kind of annoying, and if I’m wrong about something, then that means that contrary to my sparkling self-image, I don’t know it all.
But as you know, a lifetime of listening to public radio has a tendency to remind you that there’s always stuff to learn - and to unlearn. And it feels good to unlearn!
The three segments you’re gonna hear today - about pain, testosterone, and the Brown Recluse spider - are going to once and for all change the ways you may have been seeing these things. And? They were all inspired by past episodes of Audacious.
