Lost Prologue

Oct 15 2020 17 mins 53

The 1918 Spanish Flu killed more Americans during World War I than mustard gas or trench warfare, but there are no monuments or memorials dedicated to the victims of this pandemic. Lost Prologue, a four-part series, explores the history of the 1918 pandemic — its intimate connection to WW1, the ways Americans were inequitably impacted, and the science behind the world’s deadliest pathogen. The people you’ll hear from include prominent virologists, scientists, and historians who reconstruct this missing chapter of history and shed light on the current pandemic.
