My Favorite Malady

Blackwater Fever & The No-Nose Clubs of 17th Century London

September 11, 2020


Thanks for tuning into the premiere of My Favorite Malady with Mike & Nancy, a Mütter Museum podcast!

On this week's exciting episode: The mysteries of Blackwater Fever. Cocktails! Colonialism! Racism! The Vatican! Also, why there were entire clubs in 17th-century London for people with no noses? Spoiler alert: Because sex reasons. Also also, we talk corned beef hash and the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918.

Thanks to Dr. George Wohlreich and Dr. Bennett Lorber for helping all of this come together.
