October Madness: Can Flying Corpses Carry Plague?

Welcome, ghouls!

After coming across multiple articles claiming that the Tartar Army hurled plague-infected dead bodies over the wall of Kaffa in 1347, which resulted in the Genoese contracting and eventually bringing the plague to Europe, it got me thinking. Could this be true? Did the corpse missiles work? Was this the start of germ biowarfare and the primary cause of the Black Death?

We're going to answer the age-old question, Can a flying corpse distribute the plague?

This episode is gruesome! LISTENERS DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED

Hey there!
I'm Carissa, host, content creator, and producer of the indie podcast Beauty Unlocked.
Growing up, I was frequently compared and criticized for my looks and weight. This started the vicious cycle of being self-critical and loathing my body. I knew I wasn't the only one suffering from society's ridiculous notion of what "we should look like." I started digging deeper and researching various topics, and the rest is h(er)story!
Beauty Unlocked The Podcast aims to educate and bring awareness of our society's obsession with physical beauty and the emotional consequences these impossible beauty standards have. Beauty Unlocked's social media platform showcases not only my work but that of other artists, illustrators, and fellow podcasters that I admire and that share a similar message of inspiration, empowerment, positivity, and raising awareness on a variety of social issues.
