Syphilis

The Pox, the Great Imitator, the insert-racial-stereotype-here disease. This week we're talking about Syphilis and everything people have done to try and get rid of it. Join us as we discuss cures such as rubbing mercury into wounds, contracting Malaria, and locking up sleazy looking women (i.e. any woman).
