Disease Death and Doctors

The Honorable Doctor John and The less Honorable Doctor Guy

This is a storytelling podcast that discusses the NON-chronological history of medicine (Because going in order sucks). A discussion of diseases, discoveries, and the doctors that left their mark (and sometimes scar) on the field of medicine. Things are going to get weird. Episodes released twice monthly for your auditory consumption. Music: The Road (Punk Rock Opera). Tom Podell (digital alteration of Wellcome Library historical watercolor CC by 4.0)
