Episode 119: Typhoid Mary the real story

Irish immigrant Mary Mallon became synonymous with the spread of infectious disease, and is still known more than a century later as Typhoid Mary. But what really happened? And it’s interesting how, more than 115 years after she was identified as the source of a typhoid spread in New York, that as much things have changed, how some things just don’t. Rebecca tells us all about it.

We also discuss the revelations that have come out about London’s Metropolitan Police in the wake of the last year’s Sarah Everard murder, an update to our Episode 97, and Maureen NNW’s the HBOMax docuseries “The Murders at Starving Rock.”
