The Conversationalist Podcast - Episode 4: Domestic Science in the 19th Century

The Conversationalist Podcast Art

You’re invited to join our science-themed cocktail party, where experts on the history of science tell us stories, fun facts, and random anecdotes about the development of scientific knowledge from the 19th century to today.

In this episode, we talk to Dr Berris Charnley (University of Oxford) and Dr Donald Opitz (DePaul University) about domestic science in the 19th century – scientific endeavours that took place in the home. We also hear from Cory Mason and Tom Nicholson (The Oxford Artisan Distillery) about some favourite 19th century cocktails that have – thankfully – fallen out of favour today!

Interviews with: Dr Berris Charnley (University of Oxford), Dr Donald Opitz (DePaul University), Cory Mason (The Oxford Artisan Distillery), and Tom Nicholson (The Oxford Artisan Distillery)
Produced by: Dr Kira Allmann
