Description

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. 

My guest, John Barry, is an historian, adjunct faculty at Tulane University, and author of the New York Times bestseller "The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Greatest Plague in History". 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.
