The 1918 Influenza (Spanish Flu) Pandemic w/ John Barry - A True Crime History Podcast
Just over a hundred years ago, the world suffered through a brutal influenza pandemic, which infected up to a quarter of the world's population. It was nicknamed the Spanish Flu, and killed millions of people.

He joins me to offer some historical perspective on the disease, in an effort to shed some light on our own current battle with COVID-19.
