Welcome back, Malpals! To kick off SEASON 6, we're covering the fascinating life of the incredible Marie Curie. From her childhood in war-torn Poland, Marie would go on to become one of the most accomplished scientists of all time.

The picture of dedication, perseverance, intellect, curiosity, this is one story you won't want to miss.   If you want to help us grow, don't forget to subscribe and leave us a review!Send us an email at: malpracticepodcast@gmail.comFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter: @malpracticepodcastSources for this episode:https://www.proclinical.com/blogs/2020-3/10-most-influential-women-in-history-of-science-and-medicinehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_Curiehttps://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/physics/1903/marie-curie/biographical/https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/who/our-history/marie-curie-the-scientisthttps://www.biography.com/scientist/marie-curiehttps://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/madame-curies-passion-74183598/https://fee.org/articles/woman-of-science/https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-film-radioactive-shows-how-marie-curie-was-a-woman-of-the-future/ Smells Like HumansLike listening to funny friends discuss curious human behavior.Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifySupport the show
For the LAST episode of Season 5, Syd & Jess will tell you the story of the late 19th century Medical Serial Killer (MSK), Dr. Thomas Neill Cream. Also known as the "Lambeth Poisoner", Dr. Cream's last words before he was put to death by hanging was "I am Jack...." which some believe was his attempt to claim credit for the infamous crimes of Jack the Ripper. Whether that's true or he's just a mustachioed drama queen, this story is still a wild ride.   If you want to help us grow, don't forget to subscribe and leave us a review!Send us an email at: malpracticepodcast@gmail.comFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter: @malpracticepodcastSources for this episode:http://www.murderbygaslight.com/2010/08/lambeth-poisoner.html https://murderpedia.org/male.C/c/cream-thomas-neill.htmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Neill_Cream https://allthatsinteresting.com/thomas-neill-cream https://thecrimewire.com/multifarious/Dr-Thomas-Cream-Jack-the-Ripper-Suspect https://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/ny-doctor-death-doctor-cream Music from Uppbeat: https://uppbeat.io/t/danijel-zambo/fairytalesLicense code: ZQGXUZWNXEBLK6Y0Smells Like HumansLike listening to funny friends discuss curious human behavior.Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifySupport the show
