Some horrors are all too real, and we’re powerless to stop them.

Being bested by a one-celled organism can really put a person in his or her place.

In this episode I talk about REAL body horror, specifically the horror of outbreaks of illness.

Epidemics.  Pandemics.  They’ve been the topic of good and bad horror alike.  I’m fascinated by the microscopic world, and that these tiny creatures outnumber me, you, all of us.

They were here before us, and they’ll be here long after we’re gone.  It’s their world.  And they’re much more powerful than us.  In the beginning of the flu season, let’s talk about outbreaks of illness, and the horror they can provide.

Stephen King just hit the tip of the iceberg in The Stand.
