James Marion Sims: Ain't Nobody Got Time for Anesthesia!

Released Monday, 18th January 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
Join us as we discuss the Father of Gynecology: James Marion Sims! Part poorly trained physician who didn't believe in anesthesia, part racist misogynist who appears to have simply enjoyed torturing enslaved Black women during the 1800s, Sims is not somebody who deserves all the honor and admiration that history has afforded him. Learn about the barbaric practices he employed to "treat" women suffering from debilitating and painful conditions and why we might want to stop awarding Terrible People even if their Terrible deeds accomplished some breakthrough in science or medicine. Did I mention the bent pewter spoon yet? I didn't? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out more.
