S2E5: The Tuskegee Experiment
For 40 years, a group of American doctors and scientists decided it was a worthy enough cause to infect over 600 black american farmers with syphilis and deny them treatment for the purpose of observing and documenting the disease. It was a little hard to find out about this heinous fact, but we must face truth and understand why human lives must continue to be protected at all cost.

S2E4: The Hungarian Physician's legacy
In the 1800s, Ignaz Semmelweiss made a (seemingly-obvious-but-nonetheless) groundbreaking discovery that would go on to save the lives of a whole lot of Nigerians and the rest of the world everyday but especially in the Ebola crisis of 2014. Like most heroes of the past though, his reward was ill treatment and death.

S2E3: Black Death
In this episode, I share a story of a rapidly spreading and terrifying deathly disease whose origin, while unknown, claimed millions of lives. The black death was an imported disease that found avenue to thrive and claim as many lives as it did because of a combination of poor awareness of public health and safety methods as well as the unclean lifestyle that was predominant in 1300s Europe. Keep listening to hear all about it. Music from https://filmmusic.io "On My Way" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

S2E2: Tuberculosis; but make it (Victorian) Fashion
This is the story of how a deadly disease was so romanticised, it set a whole standard for how beauty was perceived. Tables later turned when the disease was unearthed as the scourge that it was. Eradication of the disease started to dictate what was fashionable.  Continue to listen to learn about the history of tuberculosis and the gorgeous women of the 1800s.

S2E1: The unfortunate story of 'Typhoid Mary'
In the early 1800s, Public Health practitioners were very eager to eliminate Typhoid; a little too eager to consider the humanity of a simple Irish cook, who just wanted to do what she loved. Continue listening to find out what happens when poor ethics meets a strong willed woman with an even stronger desire to live her life as everyone else was.

Episode 16: Questions about medical school answered
In this one, I teamed up with other doctors to answer some common questions and perceptions that people have about attending medical school. While seeming trivial, a lot of these perceptions actually influence peoples' decisions to commit to a life of medicine or influence the way they perceive those who do.  Continue listening and you just might get an answer to a question you never got around to asking yourself. Huge thanks to our kind doctors who volunteered their responses; Dr Anjola (@NnekiiiO) , Dr Ogooluwatan (@Ogooluwatan) and The Anonymous doctor.

Episode 14: Dating outside your 'spec'?
The Social Issue III The majority of us have a good idea about the qualities we desire when choosing a romantic partner. It is reasonably, a combination of physical attributes, personality traits and emotional connections. It will always take way more than one aspect to make a good partner. For the purpose of this discussion, we focus on the physical aspect, however. How important is physical attractiveness in the grand scheme of things and are relationships likely to do better, if partners are each other’s’ ‘spec’?

Episode 10: Women's safety is human safety
I invite Inara and Aanu to talk about personal experiences with prejudice and a general lack of security that plagues the everyday woman. We can all agree that the sooner we see women's health and safety issues as a human, rather than a gender problem, the earlier we can start to produce lasting solutions to the insecurity women face.

For this episode, I had a chat with a listener. Victor wanted to share his own childhood experiences with local health practices and how it affected his own health seeking behaviour as an adult. We aren't really enlightened until we educate the older generation who have been the upholders of some incredibly harmful health behaviours for centuries. Originally published September 18, 2019
