We had to have two goes at this episode. When we started recording we realised that we did not know an awful lot about the history of medicine, so we had to go away and do some research. But then we got into the swing of things and we cover the history of medicine from Hippocrates to the renaissance.
We are publishing a couple of days early as we are off on holiday this evening. We are going to France and hope to do a couple of on the road casts though we will have to see how we get on with the tech.
