This is a tale of supply and demand at it's darkest. As medical knowledge grew so did the field of anatomy. Courses in anatomy that offered students the opportunity to study real human specimens were highly sought after in the 19th century and were considered the highest form of medical training. But where does one procure human specimens?  In this episode, Jen will introduce to the Victorian era's most sinister duo, Burke and Hare, who met the demand for bodies by any means necessary.
