  • Thank you for this podcast. I am relatively new to using podcasts as reliable and compelling sources of information. Even viewing it 6 days later, it was still very relevant if not absolutely current

    I read a fair amount of American history and now am particularly interested in the social response to the Spanish flu then, and what we can learn from it.

    P.s. I may not have had a stellar career but I certainly have had a very good undergraduate education (and truth be told, courtesy in part to a Regents scholarship and the taxpayers of New York) I am proud to be a Stony Brook grad

    Best to everyone, faculty, students and staff during these challenging times. Keep up the good work
