I honestly didn’t think I would be as interested in the history
of today’s topic when I first started reading about it. There was a
lot of chemistry involved and anyone who knew me in high school
knows that was the worst subject for me. When you listen to the
episode, you’ll notice I kept the chemistry aspect to a minimum.
But as I kept researching, what intrigued me the most was when the
chemistry switched to biology and women’s studies toward the end,
when working conditions for those making today’s subject resulted
in a serious epidemic and women went on strike to protect
themselves and other workers.
