S1 E2 - Lainy Malkani talks to author and homeopath, Michelle Shine

I’m Lainy Malkani and welcome to the Social History Hub Podcast.

Every week I’ll be exploring the nature of social history and what it means to us today with an exciting line up of artists, entrepreneurs, academics and writers. They’ll share their stories and relive the moments and events that inspired them.




This week, Michelle Shine tells me how an untold story of two rebellious forces in nineteenth century Paris, homeopathy and Impressionist art became the catalyst for her debut novel, Mesmerised.

Next week on the Social History Hub podcast I’ll be talking to author Jamie Rhodes, about his spine-tingling collection of short stories, Dead Men’s Teeth, inspired by true stories from the British Library Archive collection. Join me if you can.
