In the fourth episode of our brand-new podcast series, historian and host Rebecca Rideal is joined by Sick to Death’s very own Dean Paton, as well as experts Julie Mathias, Dr Lara Thorpe, Dr Wanda Wyporska, Luke Pepera and Dr Anton Howes to investigate medicine during the early modern period. Forget the Tudors, the big story during this time is the movement of medical thinking away from Galen. Today’s object is a life-size replica of Andreas Vesalius’s Hanging Man.
Written and produced by Rebecca Rideal.
Edited and produced by Matt Pearson.
Theme music: “Time” by The Broxton Hundred
The podcast is brought to you by Sick to Death, an exciting new medical museum in the heart of historic Chester.
