CLASS is part of Transmission: A series of five Podcasts on Disease and Pandemics in a Distorted World (2021), a podcast series by Ines Doujak and John Barker on the history of pandemics.
The class structure of the present pandemic highlights the inequalities of the globe. While the rich escape in private jets and into bunkers the poor have to choose between starvation and infection and die in numbers to be deposited in experimental coffins.
