Episode 107: Sight Unseen

We like to think we’ll see it coming. That we can plan ahead and prepare—even defend ourselves. But death comes in all shapes and sizes, sometimes so small and featureless that it slips through our carefully constructed defenses without us even knowing. And history shows us that all of us should be worried about that.

Written and produced by Aaron Mahnke, with research assistance from Carl Nellis, and music by Chad Lawson.
