Nice traveling story to hear

Thoroughly enjoyed the history and science of breasts. Pleasantly pleased that there was a lot of science from different fields included in the story. Who doesn’t love breasts?

Very Interesting

These short podcasts are a great way into the world of breasts. I enjoyed the journey and was grateful Florence Williams introduced me to experts, theories, and those with different relationships with breasts.

Interesting Listen

I wasn't sure what expect when I downloaded this but I was pleasantly surprised. I've learnt so much and actually cried at some of the shows.
I didn't agree with many of the observations made, and felt some of the men made ridiculous statements to justify their lust for breasts but that's what this series was for.
It's worth listening too, and a pleasure to " meet" the first woman to have breast augmentation. She is a grounded, eloquent funny woman who deserves respect for the path she set for those who not only wanted bigger boobs, but wanted smaller breasts, needed cosmetic reconstruction and had to Deal with the loss of breast through cancer etc

Science Journalism? More like social propaganda

I agree with other reviews, despite the occupation of science journalist, Florence is obviously very biased in her opinions and frankly I just found it annoying. As a woman myself, I just felt like I was being instructed by her and those like her to think a certain way about my own body and to believe in silly things that postmodernists and the like cling to nowadays. Whilst some bits about some of the science (importance of bifidobacteria infantis) were interesting, most of it I'd already heard before and the rest was just her pushing her own agenda. It would have been so much better if she actually conducted this podcast series in an unbiased way. Unfortunately, because of the clear bias and propaganda in her approach, I would not recommend it and I'll certainly not waste my life listening to it again.

Very poor journalism

This audiobook very much pushes an agenda. It tries to constantly imply that breast cancer is solely caused by external chemicals, plastics, and obesity with a single throwaway sentence that is it's only reference to genetic predisposition.

The episodes that don't talk about cancer are interesting, but the glaring omissions and bias in every mention of cancer are enough to rate the low rating.

Interesting series of articles

This is an interesting series of articles about breasts. Most of them are medically related in some way.

Great!

Well worth a listen - I’d highly recommend this to anyone that’s interested I cultural/social history and/or material history. It’s plain funny and interesting.

Informative and eye opening

Discussions and interviews with experts, business people, and others on the various ways breasts have an impact on people's lives. I learned about people's struggles with breast cancer, both from women and of men. I learned about how there are various hypotheses on why humans have very large breasts compared to other mammals. I also learned on how some are very sensitive about their breasts and how others don't really care. Some wish they could walk around topless without it being scandalous.

Great read funny and informative. Indepth and attacked the subjects it inconounterd. Only minor criticism is when interviewing some of the personalitys some more challange on their view may have viewed greater insight.
