This Podcast Will Kill You

This podcast might not actually kill you, but it covers so very many things that can. Each episode tackles a different infectious disease, from the history, to the biology, and finally, how scared you need to be. Independently produced and edited by co-hosts Erin Welsh and Erin Allmann Updyke, graduate students in disease ecology, ‘This Podcast Will Kill You’ makes infectious diseases acceptable fodder for dinner party conversation. Season one, ‘The Plagues You Know’, covers some of the most famous (or infamous) plagues and pestilences of humankind.

Customer Reviews

Come for the biology and stay for the great chemistry

This is a great podcast. The Erins do a really good job of making sure you understand the science behind different diseases, but also do a nice job of enhancing everything with interesting facts and historical context. They do this all while still keeping it conversational and entertaining. Definitely worth a listen!

On the edge of my seat!

such an interesting take on disease! i loved the dynamic between the Erins and it was easy to tell they knew their stuff.

Educational, friendly

Great first episode. Looking forward to learning more about history and disease!
