Human body history stories, in life and in death (but mostly in death).

Episode 16: The Old Operating Theatre
18:13In this episode we step back in time into the old operating theatre, put on a blood stained apron and dig about in some pre-anaesthetic surgery. From amputations and bladder stone removal to mastectomy and breast reconstruction. You might need to bring a strong stomach.
Episode 12: The healing powers of unicorn horns
13:32Unicorn horns have been thought to have had healing and purifying powers for centuries. Kings and Queens of Europe would pay lofty prices to help them keep posions at bay and Vikings fron northern waters would make a fortune selling, well, wait and see what they were really selling.

Ep 11: Hypothermia. You're not dead until you're warm and dead.
15:43Welcome to Episode 11 of the Warts n All podcast. When I see stories of the Titanic or the White Ship disasters, my thoughts go to the people in the water. How did their bodies try to overcome to cold, how did they respond, how did they die? This episode briefly explores the response to a sudden disastrous fall into freezing waters.

Episode 10: Burke and Hare, death and dissection
17:05In 1820's Edinburgh, anatomists would pay well for bodies, wherever they might come from. Burke and Hare were not bodysnatchers but murderers who suffocated victims and sold them, still warm, to the doctors to learn their trade. Find Suzie on TikTok @suzieedge
