As much as our culture delights in talking about sex, we do not relish discussing the sexually transmitted diseases which sometimes follow. But STDs are not just a fact of life, they are a subject that has been shrouded in mystery and moralizing throughout the history of medicine.
In this episode, Emily speaks with Dr. Ina Park, a family medicine doctor, Associate Professor of Family and Community Medicine at the University of California San Francisco, and the author of Strange Bedfellows: Adventures in the Science, History, and Surprising Secrets of STDs.
Hosted by Emily Silverman.
Produced by Emily Silverman and Adelaide Papazoglou.
Edited and mixed by Jon Oliver.
Original Theme by Yosef Munro. Other music by Blue Dot Sessions.
