In the summer of 2019 - long before the world heard of COVID - author, researcher extraordinaire, and ‘Gastropod’ co-host, Nicola Tilley and her husband and co-author, Geoff Manaugh, told a rapt audience, “You and everyone around you is going to be quarantined, is going to experience quarantine in your lifetimes.” They had just presented their extensive research into quarantine that would ultimately become their new book, Until Proven Safe: The History and Future of Quarantine – a book which provides remarkably valuable information and insights into this now all too familiar component of life and its relationship with freedom, governance, and mutual responsibility throughout the world today. Nicola shares details of her prescient work in today’s fascinating conversation, in which it should be noted for reasons that will become clear, absolutely no children were consumed.
