Hosts Kelly Burdick and Christina Knott return to the pages of history for stories that still matter today.

Mar 16, 2020

Stuck at home without much to do now that Covid-19 has forced us all into social isolation? Curious how this compares to past outbreaks? It's on all our minds, too. And we have some answers.

Kelly Burdick and Christina Knott talk about a past outbreak, the 1918 influenza epidemic, known as the Spanish flu. Why was it so devastating? How does it compare to today's outbreak?

Stay home, relax and listen (and stay safe) as we discuss.


This episode is edited by Christina Knott. Intro music is "Nobody Calls It San Fran" by Coyote Hearing. Outro music is "The Papergirl" by The Whole Other.
