About

As we all adjust to a “new normal,” this weekly interview series will look closely at similar battles against pandemics we’ve faced before, where we are, and where we might be headed. When public health is threatened on a mass scale, we have a long history of working together to take on the challenge. As the host of Wondery’s American Innovations, Steven Johnson has told the stories of some of the most crucial breakthroughs in the history of health, medicine, and technology. He’s also the author of one of the seminal books on epidemics, “The Ghost Map.” On this new weekly series, Steven will speak with experts from the worlds of health and technology about how the current moment compares with past pandemics, and what the coming months might look like. What will it take to develop a COVID-19 vaccine? How will our educational system change? How can crowdsourcing help us battle the spread of the coronavirus? We’ve vanquished more dangerous threats before. Let’s roll up our sleeves and tackle this one together.
