Corpse Medicine

Halloween Special

It's Halloween and we have a suitably gruesome episode for you. For thousands of years humans have used other humans for medicine and we recreate some of the famous concoctions.

Human fleeeesshh!

From brain mashed with wine and chocolate to bodies preserved in honey for 100 years we’ve found inventive ways to capture and essence of the body.

This episode we turn our kitchen into a medieval medical lab and taste human brains, mellified man and ancient Egyptian mummy.

Do they really work? Can corpse medicine cure all ailments?

Spooky reading
