Join the ‘disease detectives’ Mark Honigsbaum and Hannah Mawdsley as they investigate the most devastating pandemic of all time: the 1918 Spanish influenza. Part scientific detective story, part historical inquiry, 'Going Viral' takes listeners to the scene of a viral crime and in the process recovers the experience of the world’s deadliest virus, which is 100 years old.

If the world were haunted by another devastating pandemic, how would we cope?

True idea of liberal arts! Science+art+history+lit

I teach at a liberal arts college where we are supposed to show the link between each discipline supporting/enhancing one another. This podcast is an amazing combination of a scientific investigation influencing history, art, literature, etc. I was fascinated. I’m adding in the art facts including g Egon Schiele into lectures! Please make another season!
