The Missing Link

In the process of scouring the Internet for worthwhile podcasts and multimedia related to the medical humanities, I was pleased to discover The Missing Link, a history of science, medicine, and technology podcast hosted by Elizabeth Green Musselman, a history professor at Southwestern University.

The podcast is extremely well-done, with high production values, interviews with important scholars, and fascinating insights.  I particularly enjoyed Episode 5: Strength in Numbers, which traces the dominance of numerative discourse in science and medicine from the early moderns to the present.
