Undisciplinary

Undisciplinary

Each episode, sometimes academics, Courtney Hempton, Jane Williams and Chris Mayes take an undisciplined dive (i.e. bellyflop) into the underwater caverns of history, ethics and politics of health. They are joined by a cocktail of erudite, cantankerous and more qualified guests to talk through everything from the history of feminist bioethics to why acronyms are a curse and unnecessary evil. Plus, they break down the latest biopolitical news, discuss #bioethicstwitter bin-fires, and dig up forgotten gems from the archive. New episodes drop every Thursday.
