Emily Mayhew – Four Horsemen NonFicPod

Dr Emily Mayhew is a military medical historian, and is the historian in residence in the Department of Bioengineering and a Research Fellow in the Division of Surgery within the Department of Surgery and Cancer, both at Imperial College London. Dr Mayhew wrote the Wounded trilogy, a series of books detailing medicine, conflict, and recovery. Her latest book, Four Horsemen looks at those extraordinary individuals and collaborations that are working to hold the line against war, pestilence, plague, and death. In this episode, we learn about Inca scientists, potatoes on Mars, and the importance of outcome studies. And your host, Byrne, learns how to pronounce cicada.A full transcript is available here Get bonus content on Patreon See for privacy and opt-out information.
