RPS Pharma Scene #20 - Christmas Past, with the Aural Apothecary
It's Christmas, so, we've invited our friends from the Aural Apothecary podcast to join us - hurrah!
Together with host Catherine Walker from the RPS Pharmacy Museum, and RPS Chief Scientist Professor Parastou Donyai, they take a fun and festive look at some questionable pharmacy ads for products that probably wouldn't make it past advertising standards today.
From soaps shaped like long-lost TV icon "Mr Turnip" to crazy party packs, relax and re-live the "good old days" of Christmas pharmacy gifts.
