Leticia Arroyo and Noel Maurer are New York based academics who have written a fascinating work on if and how pandemics shape elections following their paper on the 1918 Spanish Flu. In this episode they discuss the steps taken in America to curb the Spanish Flu, and how certain measures were similar to those taken recently for Covid-19 but the public reaction to them was far more extreme.
