Snapchat, Psychiatry, Femininity, and Savory Toothpastes

Is Dave ready for Snapchat? Corbin Weaver, Cole Cheney, Taz Khalid, and Tony Rosenberg try to convince him to start one up for the show. Are antibiotics really dead, now that the first totally resistant E.coli bacteria has been found in a US patient? Amazon reviews of common medical equipment leave everyone a bit unsettled. We explore Corbin's reflections on psychiatry and whether patients are helped or hindered when healthcare does the tasks of everyday life for them. And since dental health is so important for overall health, Dave creates some savory alternatives to traditional toothpaste flavors, and the crew tests them out, to see if any of them are a good idea.
