Ladies Who London Podcast

Ep 26 - Liverpool St / Shoreditch - Bedlam

March 17, 2021

Welcome back, everyone! We're continuing our march into the darker bits of London with a look at Bethlehem hospital, better known as Bedlam. We take a look at the history behind this infamous hospital and why the name Bedlam has been adopted into day to day language. 

TRIGGER WARNING - we are talking about mental health, and will be using some words that were used historically but are not particularly accepted or respectful today. They are being used in a historical context and with reference to quotes. 

Plus we find out who won the Podcast Pedestal and Emily gets her sweaty hands on the wheel again for another chance to see where we will get to chat about next week.

Let us know what you think on Instagram, or on our websites.
