News about the coronavirus seems to be the only thing spreading faster than the actual coronavirus. This week we welcome Steve Rekant, who works with the Center for Disease Control, about the facts of the virus (known officially - and clunkily - as "2019 Novel Coronavirus" until they think of a better name), what it is, how it's spread, and the things you should and shouldn't be afraid of. All that plus an out-sized news section on this extended episode. Enjoy!
*20 minutes after this podcast was updated, they officially named the virus "SARS-CoV," or "Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2, Electric Boogaloo"
