How much should you wash your hands? What’s the best way to flirt with a stranger on a bus? Why are people scared of vaccines? What conspiracy theory enthralls Alie?

Two epidemiologists-named-Erin and hosts of the stellar This Podcast Will Kill You chat about historical horror stories, plagues, flus, tick bombs, milkmaids, witch trials and more as they share their passion for disease ecology.
