April 3, 2019

Thank you to everyone who came and saw us at the 2019 Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) Annual Conference in Salt Lake City! We didn’t do a live show per-se, but rather a roundtable presentation about how podcasts can be a useful tool for communicating to a variety of audiences. We’ll share that info sometime, but for now, sit back and enjoy a story about a pioneer woman who not only was an accomplished doctor and public health champion but also the first female state senator in the U.S. – and an interesting person too!

The intro and outro music is “Take Your Medicine” by The Quick and Easy Boys. Rate and review us on Apple Podcasts and Google Play and sign up for our email list at www.viral-pod.com.

Episode 37 - Public Health, Religion, and Mythology

One recurring theme of this show is that people throughout history have used religion and storytelling to explain what was then unexplainable. In today’s episode, Linsey and Quinn discuss Shapona, the Yoruba god of smallpox, and Endovelicus, the god of public health and safety in pre-Roman Lusitania (modern-day Portugal).

2019 is a big year for Viral – stay tuned for some re-releases of popular episodes and a bunch of new topics!
