Dead Ideas: The History of Extinct Thoughts and Practices

 1 rating
A philosophy, culture, society, comedy, history podcast from B. T. Newberg and history nerd friends
Website: https://deadideas.net

We explore ideas and practices once believed to be true but no longer. Each dead idea is explored in all its glorious eccentricity.

For example, discover miasma, the theory that plague comes from stinky air; or the medical diagnosis of hysteria, which holds that women’s wombs wander around their bodies causing trouble.

Join us on a fun romp through the history of ideas that didn’t quite stand the test of time.
