FFS Show 41: The rise of Dr. Google

Have you ever searched for your health symptoms on Google and freaked yourself out? That’s the topic of today’s FFS Show podcast interview.

Ali spoke to health researcher Taleen Ashekian from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, about the increasing use of Dr. Google and a phenomenon called ‘cyberchondria’.

Ali and Paul also look at a claim about what Liz Truss will be entitled to after leaving her six-week stint as prime minister.
