Full Episode description

It sounds like magic – a pill that makes you feel better, even though it contains no medicine. Yet, strangely enough, fake drugs called placebos really do work. In this episode, Ciaran and Dan explore why the pills can fool us, and why we should be wary of their evil cousins, the nocebos.
