Episode 27: Nightmare Junction II: The Sad Case of Dr. Horace Wells
In the second Halloween special for Nutmeg Junction (Nightmare Junction) the corpse conductor introduces us to the strange case of Dr. Horace Wells, which is based on a true story of a Dentist in Connecticut and may have been the inspiration for the story "Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde". The second tale is a fun story of a poetry reading gone wrong! This one we plan to do LIVE for an audience very soon!And as a bonus, there's a wonderful original song by Lana Peck called "Sweet Severed Head" which works perfectly for the Halloween special!
Dentist Horace Wells set up shop in Hartford in 1836, before the discovery of anasthesia. At an exhibition in 1844 he became certain that nitrous oxide could revolutionize medicine. He tried to demonstrate his findings... but things didn't go as planned. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
