044 - Our Ancestors and the Spanish Flu Epidemic

You've probably seen references to how the Corona virus and COVID-19 compare to the Spanish Flu. But what was life like for our ancestors during that scary time of 1918 and 1919? In this episode, Lori Lyn Price, a social historian who has studied life during the Spanish Flu, explains what our ancestors went through back then. 

Note: if you typically listen to this podcast with children, you might want to listen to it without them first to make sure that it's appropriate for their age level.
