Adding voices to papers…Medical History‘s second podcast is now available online

Medical History’s  2nd podcast is an engaging interview with Mark Jackson in which he discusses his paper ‘“Divine Stramonium”: The Rise and Fall of Smoking for Asthma.

This work has three broad themes; the history of inhalation (of Stramonium and other herbal remedies) as a drug delivery method, an alternative history of smoking which contextualises the use of smoking in the treatment of asthma and an exploration of the exchange of knowledge relating to remedies.

The interview, conducted by Grace Williams, Communications and Impact Officer, Centre for Medical History at the University of Exeter,  is now available in full on two audio files

This podcast is the next episode in a series commissioned  by Sanjoy Bhattacharya, the editor of Medical History.  He has invited some of his highly-respected colleagues to record short interviews discussing papers they have previously published in the journal. These papers make up a collection of ‘Highlights from a Decade’, selected to mark Medical History’s new publishing arrangement with Cambridge.  Access all the articles from ‘Highlights of a Decade’ by visiting: and entering code MDHBLOG
