As far as existential threats to the human species go, pandemics rank near the top of the list. What is the probability of an agressive, highly-fatal outbreak occuring soon? Is it high enough to worry about? And if one occurs, what can/should we do to protect ourselves and our loved ones? To address these questions, we interview John M. Barry, author of the award-winning New York Times best-seller The Great Influenza - The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague in History.
