CRWM #09: Dr Mütter’s Marvels

CRWM09For episode nine of Come Read With Me, my friend Jess joined me to discuss Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz’ Dr. Mütter’s Marvels: A True Tale of Intrigue and Innovation at the Dawn of Modern Medicine. As usual, there were plenty of tangents including a five-minute tangent (you’re welcome, I edited it from 20) about Jane Austen fan fiction. Maybe I should just turn this into a Come Read Jane Austen with me podcast! (Don’t worry, I won’t.)

I was apparently super fidgety during the recording so I’m super sorry about all the background noise!

Jess and I talked for almost TWO hours so the editing process was pretty daunting. I had to cut a lot out including some books (like a discussion about creative non-fiction and American Horror Story vs. Dr. Mütter’s Marvels) and editing quite a few interesting discussions down by half 😀 That being said, we still were able to talk about medicine and modern improvements of science, Shakespearean post-it notes and the state of Women’s health today.

I hope you enjoyed the episode as much as we enjoyed recording it. I’ll be back in March with Episode 10!
