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