His new graphic novel, Germ Warfare details the brutal history of microscopic diseases used as weapons of war. The novel also salutes our brave scientists who have protected us from disease and will continue to so in the future with the public's cooperation.

Max and I talk about how why he wrote the book, his role as a consultant and storyteller for national security panels, and how his famous mother, Anne Bancroft, instilled in him an awareness of disease and love of science at an early age. Like 7.
