S1 Episode 8: Pierre & Marie Curie | Love & Fallout

World's Greatest Love Stories Podcast

Pierre and Marie Curie are the most successful and renowned husband and wife team in the history of science. Together they make discoveries in radioactivity (even coining the term ‘radioactivity’) that will lead to everything from the modern X-ray to radiation therapy for cancer treatment. But their path to true love and scientific innovation is far from an easy one as it's fraught with government oppression, sexism, radiation poisoning, and the intense sorrow that comes from experiencing the tragic loss of a spouse. Still, the relationship that develops between these two extremely bright minds is filled with so much love and respect that one might say, scientifically speaking, it’s their greatest discovery of all! ►Follow us on Facebook here This episode is brought to you by amiethedatingcoach.com Grab Amie's free Ebook, 5 Dating Traps to Avoid ►https://www.amiethedatingcoach.com/getlovenow Title Song "Brave" by Sad Puppy Follow Sad Puppy on Twitter Follow Sad Puppy on Instagram
