Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this week's episode, Syd & Jess cover the European Witch Trials - which may not sound related to medicine until you hear about who was targeted. Midwives, healers, widows, and middle aged women were regularly the targets of dangerous, sweeping accusations that led to the deaths of up to 100,000 people in Medieval Europe.
