Today’s podcast is about epidemics. At some point or another, history has revealed that every nation, culture, and people has faced a widespread infection or virus. Today we’re going to take a look at some of the epidemics facing us today, and what we can do to fight them together.
We’ll be talking with Dr. Anthony Fauci, a noted virus researcher and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He’ll be talking with us about the recent outbreak of the Zika epidemic.
Taking a different look at epidemics, we’ll be exploring one of the largest ongoing epidemics facing the entire human race… climate change. Malcolm Bowman, a professor of oceanography at Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, will talk to us about building barriers to protect NYC from more superstorms like Hurricane Sandy.
Be sure to check out our video as we take our questions to the streets of NYC.
Watch as Lisa and Zach tell you the top 10 things you probably didn’t know about the Zika Virus.
