Episode 428 – An Appointment with Alba Salix, Royal Physician

This week:

  • Witchcraft!
  • Charlatans!
  • A Canadian plot to annex the United States?(!)

David begins with a brief bit of history on John R. Brinkley, the notorious Goat Gland Doctor of Milford, Kansas.  A bit of quackery seemed relevant given today’s episode, which features an episode of Alba Salix, Royal Physician, a fantasy hospital comedy.  The episode we’re playing features an ethically dubious patent medicine.

After the feature, David has a chat with Alba Salix show creator Eli McIlveen.

 

Enjoy!
