Potions, fumigations, rustic obstetric chairs and tools that look more like instruments of torture than anything else… This episode explores the field of obstetrics of the past, present and future. We also discover the surprising history of the field of oncology: from middle-age remedies such as wolf’s tongue, to the tragic fate of Marie Curie and the devotion and dedication of the first doctors to use radiotherapy. We also explore contemporary treatments and possible future solutions to fight the ruthless disease.
