It’s alive! ALIVE!!! Sure, science is certainly the best method humans have so far devised for discovering the truth of the world around us (and inventing super-cool shit to boot), but sometimes it’s a rocky road, and occasionally the most brilliant scientific minds can come up with some wacky and disturbing ideas that can lead to some pretty strange experiments and ethical conundrums.
On this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny discuss four cases of weird science, including Harry Harlow’s monkey love-deprivation experiments, the Hofling Hospital doctor-authority studies, Freud’s nasal-sexual weirdness with patient Emma Eckstein, and the case of Dr. John Money, David Reimer, and sex reassignment gone tragically wrong.
