Peter’s a good skier too!
Someone recommended the Barry book on the 1918 influenza pandemic, and I Googled reviews and found one by Dr Palese. I am a regular listener to recent TWiVs and I recalled the name, and did not know until today (when I read the Wikipedia article) that he was Vincent’s advisor in grad school.
That is all to say that I got led to this podcast and it is amazing how many topics that they discussed are relevant to the Covid pandemic, although maybe I shouldn’t be surprised.
Another great show — highly recommended!
