Good Ethiopian Princess Nurse Bad Doctor Harold Shipman

This week we travel across the pond to chat with Kirsty, an Emergency Department nurse...or as they say in the UK, Accident and Emergency Department nurse. Together, Tina and Kirsty tell the horrific story of the notorious doctor Harold Shipman. Shipman was a general practitioner who was adored by his patients until his patient's son made a disturbing discovery about his practice that went back decades. They close the show with a heart-warming tale of a beautiful Ethiopian Princess who gave up her life of royalty to become a nurse.

A huge thank you to our sponsors!
