The Poison Room is a podcast about dangerous writing - from the very first anti-vaccination literature to the Anarchist Cookbook. We've got banned books, burned books, ridiculous laws, and centuries of misinterpreting holy texts, books that are dangerous to read and own, and books it was dangerous to write. Tune in to explore the long and varied history of bad ideas.

The voice in your ears is Silvie Kilgallon. Classicist, artist, and not that kind of doctor.
