Welcome to this week's episode, where we are making a stop at Whitechapel to visit Joseph Merrick, as so many people during the Victorian era did.

Ep 22 - St James - James Graham & The Celestial Bed

February 17, 2021

Ooh er missus, it's getting sexy this week! We're off to St James for Alex's pick of the Celestial Bed, which was basically an extravagant 18thC sex aid! We find out how Georgians could get electrifying sex for a rather hefty sum, and what kind of weirdness was considered aphrodisiac back in the late 1700s

We experienced some pretty big technical issues this week, so please bear with us. From dodgy wifi, imploding computers, and warring microphones, it's a bit slap dash, so please be gentle with us!
