Where do most viruses come from and how can we stop them infecting humans with National Geographic science writer David Quammen

In Episode 101 I was super fortunate to have the opportunity to sit down with well known National Geographic writer and author, David Quammen, to talk about zoonotic diseases and mitigating the risk of future pandemics. A fascinating area of science that gives birth to yet another reason to be mindful of our lifestyles. Given that predictions suggest there are over 1.5 million animal viruses yet to be discovered understanding what increases the likelihood that a virus passes from an animal to a human is incredibly important for human health.
