Ignaz Semmelweis and His Simple Great Idea (Encore)
Subscribe to the podcast!
In the mid-19th century, a Hungarian physician advocated for an incredibly simple technique that would go on to save millions of lives.
However, when he first proposed it, his idea wasn’t just ignored, it was vehemently rejected by the very people who could have used it to save lives. Not only was the idea rejected, but he was ridiculed to a point that might have led to his early death.
Learn more about Ignaz Semmelweis and how no good deed goes unpunished, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
