Well worth the time

This was an absolutely fascinating take on the subject of history of disease. It's true that the professor sounds somewhat pompous and scripted, but that actually made the audio version very good for listening (that and the very good audio quality). Actually, I thought he sounded a bit like Dr. Evil, as he discussed some of the more gruesome aspects of the diseases, but the quality of the lectures and the quality of their content made this a very enjoyable course. One drawback of the audio version is that he does show some graphs and pictures, however, the course was so interesting, I am considering skimming over the video at some point to see what I missed.

Best listened to at double speed.

The professor has some eye opening revelations by placing epidemics in a historical perspective in the context of both the development of modern medicine, as well as the impact on society and politics. Well worthwhile.He speaks slow enough that one can listen at 2x speed and absorb.

Epidemics in Western Society Since 1600

An interesting subject . . . but the pomposity of Professor Snowden's verbosity was a monstrosity that ruined my curiosity.

Thorough and interesting. Enjoyed listening.

Although it sound more scripted than most lecture classes, it lends itself well to podcasting.
