Let’s talk about something we’ve all experienced: Hiccups. They can strike at any age, and for most of us, they’re just an annoying inconvenience.

But have you ever wondered what actually causes hiccups? Or if the old tricks of holding your breath or drinking water actually work?

In this week’s episode, we’re diving deep into the weird science of hiccups.

Did you know that premature infants can spend up to 2.5% of their time hiccupping, and that the world record for hiccups is 68 years? 😱

As a total body nerd, I’m 100% fascinated by the physiology of hiccups. And by the end of this episode, you will be too.
