Six Degrees of Separation

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

For our upcoming episode on Laughter, we kept coming across references to a 1962 epidemic of contagious laughter in Tanzania. But every scholarly article, every newspaper reference, every mention we found, seemed to just point back to the source - a 1963 article from a medical journal.
