About this Episode

What does The Lady of the Lamp have to do with Magic cards and Hanson’s latest live album? Well it’s unlikely that the lads from Jeremy’s Iron have offered much in the way of segue. Consider it a sort of brutalist pastiche… half the canvas devoted to trivialites, and the other half a portrait of the most significant public health figure in history. That said, there is way more than meets the eye to Flo Jo Nightingale. She is quite a controversial figure being at once a harsh clinician and a caring confidante, a feminist and an anti-feminist.
