Registered nutritionist and science communicator Pixie Turner has launched new podcast In Bad Taste alongside surgeon and presenter Dr Nikki Stamp, in which they watch and discuss terrible health documentaries so that you don’t have to.
In the podcast, Pixie and Nikki will be casting a critical eye over some of the most popular health documentaries of recent times. They will be unpacking the pseudo-science and examining the key claims made in a different documentary each month, beginning with The Game Changers, a 2018 documentary supporting plant-based diets for athletes.
