Narrated by Kate Mulgrew, Francesca Faridany

Run Time: 1 hr and 19 mins


It’s not really a story so much as a few conversations that could have happened between prominent women scientists. Marie Curie has an affair with a married man (Paul) and is currently being shunned by French society. Her British friend tries to help her with the emotional fallout.

Additional Comments:

  • Performance was fine. Whoever cast Francesca Faridany as Hertha Ayrton is brilliant.
  • Has sound effects used to good effect.
  • The blurb pretty much tells the entire story.
  • The first hour covers a very short span. The last five minutes covers several years.
  • Content Warnings: A lot of cursing, especially for such a short story. 2 f-bombs.


Marie Curie’s one of the few women scientists mentioned in a chemistry class. I’d never heard this part of history. It’s an interesting piece of historical fiction.
