Episode 49: Under the Influenza

We’re back baby! Troy’s been under the weather for about a week and a half, which we’re not only going to use as an excuse for our absence, but we’re also using it for the theme of this episode! We go over the history of Buffalo’s largest hospital, which played an important role in the area during the 1918 flu pandemic. To go along with our theme of weird stuff that microorganisms do, we’re drinking Big Ditch’s Bidwell Wild Ale! Now wash your hands and listen up!

Check out Troy’s new publication, Manic Expressive!

Music: “Low Bridge” by the Rust Belt Brigade
