Great news! This week a few of my thoughts on body snatching in Canada in the nineteenth century were featured in a long and informative article by Katie Daubs of the Toronto Star newspaper. We spoke for about an hour about the subject, and I tried to provide as much insight as I could into cases I've read about in Ontario newspapers, as well as analysis of the subject from a history of medicine standpoint. Katie did a great job on this piece, which was thoroughly researched and written in an accessible manner. If you're interested you can find the piece by clicking below, or by going to the the media tab at the top of the page:
