Know Your S**t

Know Your S**T: Inside Our Guts airs a new episode tonight Tuesday 24 January 2023 on Channel 4.

Episode 2 This time around, we meet a firefighter who is sick of being called “Stinky Grandad,” a Jersey girl who experiences excruciating stomach pain after eating, and a nurse who can go from a size 16 to a size 24 in a matter of minutes.

Sophie Medlin, a dietitian, and Dr. Rabia Topan, a gut expert, help them sort through their issues and embark on a path toward better health.

And in the meantime, identical twin hosts Alana Macfarlane Kempner and Lisa Macfarlane investigate the connection between diet and intestinal wellness. In order to observe some of the worst parasites that can infest a human host, they travel to the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
They also consult with bowel cancer expert Professor Phillip Quirke to discuss the alarming increase in occurrences of this disease and explore potential solutions.

It’s high time we broke the stigma surrounding bodily waste by revealing our feisty inner workings. Science’s exploration of the gut’s effect on the body and mind is one of the most promising new areas of study. Channel 4 has therefore opened Poo HQ, a clinic dedicated to dispelling poo-related myths and changing people’s perspectives on the subject.

In each episode, regular individuals reveal their gut issues to a group of digestive system specialists in the hopes of finding answers to their problems.

Airdate: Tuesday 24 January 2023 at 8.00pm on Channel 4.
