A podcast mini-series, slowly made, telling the stories of some forgotten figures in the history of Science Communication

Episode 1 – Eustace Amour Hublin

We only have one source for Hublin’s life – a chapter in ‘Les Saltimbanques’, an 1875 book interviewing various travelling entertainers. I am eternally indebted to Colin Johnson for translating it from the French for me, as well as doing sterling work in researching Hublin’s demos. You can read his translation, along with his notes on the demo equipment, right here.
