Jonathan is being more of a prick than usual by giving Chris a testosterone prick to boost his manliness. But is “low T” a real diagnosis or an ad man creation? Thanos, our comedian, takes us to his Brazilian jiu-jitsu class to interview sweaty men about aging and andropause. Back in the studio, Chris and Jonathan talk about the difficulties of measuring testosterone levels, whether or not T can reverse aging decline and will it give you cancer? Also: p-hacking in a famous food lab or how “hard work” doesn’t always pay off; Health Canada makes Chris sad; and why Montrealers are marching for science.
