Join science journalist Debora MacKenzie (COVID-19: The Pandemic That Never Should Have Happened and How to Stop the Next One) and biomedical engineer Muhammad H. Zaman (Biography of Resistance) as they discuss not only how COVID-19 emerged and why an outbreak became a pandemic, but also how this pandemic compares to others from history and how societies handled—or didn't—those, too. Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Lawrence Wright leads the discussion
