Welcome to the third episode of The Lesson.

In this podcast, our guest teaches us about whatever they like. No matter how obscure or unusual the topic, guests will give a lesson on their specialist subject and you and we will be their attentive pupils. How they want to run their lesson is entirely up to them. Leave your preconceptions at the metaphorical classroom door, settle down and enjoy The Lesson. 

In episode three, Dr Garwood gives us an insight into her research on self-starvation, particularly looking at the early modern noblewomen and how they starved themselves as a political tactic. There's also discussion on how society's attitudes to eating and the body has changed over time. 

Dr Sasha Garwood also hosts the Unsex me here podcast -  https://soundcloud.com/unsexmehere
