Sometimes you need to have a glass of wine, cuppa whatever and listen to a good old weird story. Musical score Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.

Aug 6, 2020

Dear Readers and Dashhounds, if you have ever suffered from VVF, we are so very sorry and are thankful you live in this Er-ah. But the history that led up to the medical advancement in treating VVF and basically the beginning of all gynecology work had terrible beginnings with one J. Marion Sims. Learn about him in today's episode and the women he took advantage of in trying to make a buck. We hope you learn about racism and its lasting affects in medicine. if you happen to laugh so hard you pee yourself, thank your lucky stars it's just old age and not a leaky hole. You'll understand. Thank you always for listening!
