War Hospital


What happens when you turn a First World War medical process into a computer game?

This month Angus, Jessica, and Chris take control of wartime medicine in the game War Hospital. Along the way we discuss the importance of evacuation, difficult ethical decisions, and why Chris’ conscience is completely clear. If you listen to this episode and share it on social media you can also win a free copy of the game!


An Unequal Burden, Jessica Meyer (2019)
