Episode 5: Contagion (part two)


Love, happiness, and disease. These are a few things that today we call  “contagious.” But how did thinkers in the Indian subcontinent, before  the discovery of viruses, understand diseases and their treatment? This  podcast is part two of a two-part interview with Patricia Sauthoff, an  expert in the history of alchemy and medicine in India.
