The Place Where Time Begins / The Father of Medicine

Here we are with two new “Living Books for the Ears” programs for you! This week…


This story has nothing to do with the beginning of the world, which the title might lead you to believe. Rather it has to do with the beginning of the DAY. You see, every day time begins atop a small hill in Grenwich Park in England… the site of
Grenwich Observatory, the starting place of the hours. Here’s the fascinating  story of why and how Grenwich became
the focal point for our reckoning of time.


Next, we travel back to ancient Greece, and learn the story of Hippocrates,  who first separated the science of medicine
from  superstition and philosophy — and became the forerunner of the  modern physician. (Just give a listen to
the weird superstitions folks once had about the causes of their illness…  what a hoot!)

Here’s the link for you…
