UKCVFamily: Episodes six, seven and eight - talking science, everything being poop and mean people

Updated: Sep 9, 2022

In episode six, Caroline speaks again with our resident expert Dr Harriet Carroll who gives us further insight from a more scientific point of view. Episode seven digs deep with a look into fear and its effect on us, while in episode eight, Charlet and Caroline discuss encountering hatred and long-lasting friendships.

"I had a reaction, and for the first six or eight months, I didn't really talk about it because, like a lot of us, I thought it was just me" - Dr Harriet Carroll, NHS Researcher and UK CV Family Volunteer.

In 'Episode 6, The Scientist's Back', Harriet returns to talk with Caroline about the placebo effect, open-minded doctors, and acupuncture of both the intentional and accidental kinds! And let us know in one sentence — why did you REALLY get the v?
