Good Medicine is an interactive satire on the American medicine show through the centuries. The story is about three characters: Reverend Beauford T. Jones, Dr. Chester C. Braman, and Kurt Candleman, Spiritual Advisor and Master Guru. They all exist in different periods of history and are trying to sell their philosophies and products for health. The show exposes the similarities between the characters even though they are from different centuries showing that today we have the same snake-oil salesmen as in the 19th century, with absurd products which claim to heal and cure.
