    Ep 11: Hypothermia. You're not dead until you're warm and dead.

    Ep 11: Hypothermia. You're not dead until you're warm and dead.

    Welcome to Episode 11 of the Warts n All podcast. When I see stories of the Titanic or the White Ship disasters, my thoughts go to the people in the water. How did their bodies try to overcome to cold, how did they respond, how did they die? This episode briefly explores the response to a sudden disastrous fall into freezing waters.

    Episode 10: Burke and Hare, death and dissection

    In 1820's Edinburgh, anatomists would pay well for bodies, wherever they might come from. Burke and Hare were not bodysnatchers but murderers who suffocated victims and sold them, still warm, to the doctors to learn their trade.
