Ep. 161: The Craziness Caused By COVID-19

The Craziness Caused By COVID-19

Between the time I we first recorded How Madness Shaped History and when the episode came out, something unpredictable happened: a killer pandemic swept across the world.  What came after was a wave of craziness that affected basically everyone, from world leaders to your next door neighbor.  I brought Chris The Conqueror back on to weigh-in on several topics, including toilet paper hoarding, the optics of Ebola, and the infatuation with conspiracy theories.
