Dr Kristin Hussey is a historian of Victorian London, medicine and empire, and is a curator of the Royal College of Physicians. You can find and follow her on twitter or for further museum-centric fun over on Minstry of Curiosity. In this episode Kristin discusses many marvellous things but specifically the ‘500 years of women in medicine’ exhibition and you can now go on a RCP tour in the video below….

Alexis Gregory is an outstanding playwright, actor and producer who is about town and currently burning up cinema screens in Mankind (NSFWish trailer below).  Long-listed for the Polari Prize 2016, Alexis’ works include: ‘Slap’ (Channel 4, Theatre Royal Stratford East) ‘Safe’ (Soho Theatre, Southbank Centre) and his latest ‘Riot’ is now available on Amazon, and popping up soon at Soho House after a several sold out runs. You can find him on twitter and instagram!

Once again Tasha was pulling all the levers on our late lunch and so between risotto stirring, garlic counting and camera snapping we didn’t get a memento for you to enjoy Tasha’s face but you’ll hear their many talents in the episode instead! Thanks to Tasha’s wife Fi for making this cake face pic possible, it really was this delicious…
