This week we are taking a look at the classic legend of ‘The Pin Prick Attack’. We’ll also dive deep into the history of the AIDS epidemic in America, and examine the ways in which the cultural climate allowed urban legends to spread as quickly as the disease. From cautionary tales, to hero’s quest, to boogeymen; we’ll discuss the folklore of AIDS in the moments before science caught up with the monster. Join us this week as we remember those we’ve lost, the men and women who dedicated their lives to finding hope, and the stories that survived this moment of intense fear, real threat and unbelievable bravery in the face of impossible odds. In honor of World AIDS Day, we present ‘Welcome to Reality’.
