Jumping from person to person, growing exponentially, they sweep across the world. Epidemics take many forms: Some are terrible diseases, destroying entire populations. Some are debilitating fears, ideas that paralyze or destroy the mind. And some are just bad jokes about Barack Obama that live forever in forwarded e-mails, never fully vanishing from the internet no matter how many times you delete those messages from your Uncle Dave.

The Story Collider brings together lobbyists, researchers, musicians, and other disreputable types to tell us personal stories about the times when, for good or ill, science happened.

Join us for five stories about Epidemics and how they spread; 8pm August 12th at Pacific Standard; 82 Fourth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn. No cover, no drink minimum.

Hosted by Ben Lillie and Brian Wecht
