A Thorough Examination with Drs Chris and Xand - A podcast by BBC Radio 4

Chris and Xand van Tulleken recorded live at the Hay Festival. They’re reflecting on how much their lives have changed since they started recording their podcast, A Thorough Examination. Xand has lost almost three stone and Chris has written a book about ultra processed food, which was the cause of Xand’s weight gain. They’ve navigated serious health concerns, major bust-ups in their working and personal life and are continuing to challenge their scepticism about each other’s ability to change and improve. In front of a live audience at the Hay Festival, Chris and Xand choose the most memorable moments from series one and two of A Thorough Examination. They revisit Xand’s lowest moments with his weight struggles, Chris’ misguided nagging and reflect on the most useful advice they’ve received from experts. All of this is in the hope that, as they embark on recording series 3 of A Thorough Examination, things will go as smoothly as possible… Recorded live at the Hay Festival, 28th May 2023 Presented by Chris and Xand van Tulleken Produced by Alexandra Quinn A Loftus Media production for BBC Radio 4 and BBC Sounds
