THE ICEPICK SURGEON Murder, Fraud, Sabotage, Piracy, and Other Dastardly Deeds Perpetrated in the Name of Science

by | Read by Ben Sullivan

Contemporary Culture • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Ben Sullivan's strong, clear voice and intentional pacing complement these tales of scientific misdeeds perfectly. In the name of progress, Thomas Edison, John Money, and John Charles Cutler, to name a few, disregarded ethics to achieve scientific glory. Hindsight shows that meaningful scientific progress is impossible to achieve through nefarious methods because the results are tainted. Unethical means almost always result in faulty methodology. Listeners will be aghast by the actions of these scientists; they seem more like characters of pulp science fiction. These chronicles are captivating because of their impact on the present day. Sullivan's straightforward narration of these unbelievable events will remind listeners of where the road of supposedly good intentions leads.
