About the station

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.
