The Monster Guys Podcast: Episode 054 – Mass Psychogenic Illness
Show Notes & Summary:
Mass Psychogenic Illness, or MPI, is also known as Mass Sociogenic Illness, and is described as a rapid spread of signs and symptoms of illness among a group of people, large or small, in close proximity or relation to one another.
We’ve covered The Dancing Plague of 1518 on The Monster Guys Podcast in a previous episode, and we touch on that epidemic here again along with a laughing epidemic and other social and religious events that could be described as MPI’s.
Thanks for listening and please share!
