This Pod­cast Will Kill You

- — Shyama Krishna Ku­mar is a copy ed­i­tor by day and a genre queen by night. Comics, pod­casts and su­per­hero TV shows are just some of her cur­rent ob­ses­sions.

Here at Pod­cast Post, we love us some funny women and This Pod­cast Will Kill You is the fun­ni­est pod­cast to ever ex­ist about some­thing as mor­bid as life-threat­en­ing dis­eases. Each episode tack­les a dif­fer­ent dis­ease, from its his­tory, to its bi­ol­ogy, and fi­nally, how scared you need to be.

Ecol­o­gists and epi­demi­ol­o­gists Erin Welsh and Erin All­mann Updyke, both pas­sion­ate to a fault about science com­mu­ni­ca­tion, make in­fec­tious dis­eases ac­cept­able fod­der for din­ner party con­ver­sa­tions. Sea­son two is in full swing cur­rently and episodes like TGFA: Thank God for An­tibi­otics, Tu­ber­cu­lo­sis: A Slow Burn, Ra­bies: Don’t Di­lute Me Bro, and GMOAT: The Great­est Mor­tal­ity Of All Time: Black Death make for ad­dic­tive lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ences and you’ll be binge­ing through be­fore you know it.
