Ep 28: Gordon Patterson: Mosquito Control
Play • 41 min

Today we are joined by the one and only Dr. Gordon Patterson, professor of history at the Florida Institute of Technology and one of the world's experts on the history of Mosquito control, especially in Florida.  We talk about Mosquitoes, the long quest to control them, and how Dr. Patterson found a treasure trove of information about the history of this campaign right here in Florida.  Plus, a bonus conversation about what its like to teach humanities to a bunch of engineers.
