This week we’re talking about the Mandela Effect. It is defined as “collective false memory.” That means many of us remember things incorrectly and we all remember them incorrectly the same way.

This week, we explore the branding of diseases. Over the course of history, diseases have been named after people and countries with devastating effects.
