August 30, 2020 Episode 7: Ether, Chloroform and the Curse Of Eve

Genesis 3:16 is pretty clear on the matter of ladies, childbirth and pain. An even-tempered Old Testament God cursed Eve and her offspring (which, I mean technically include men...but) because she ate food when she was hangry.  This brief palette cleanser of an episode chats up the wonders of chloroform, a bunch of cheery Scots an equal number of grumpy Scottish Calvinists and the birth (get it?) of anesthesia for labor and delivery!
