A special episode today as Dr. Josh Sharfstein discusses Albert Camus’s The Plague with Dr. Mark Christian Thompson, chair of the English department at Johns Hopkins. The Plague, which was written in 1947, is immediately relevant to our experiences with COVID-19 and so much more. Thompson and Sharfstein discuss the book’s relevance to current events including racial and social inequality. (Don’t worry: You do not have to have read The Plague before listening to the podcast!)
