We've been catching colds for millennia - but it wasn't until fairly recently that we actually understood how and why we get sneezy, coughy, and achy. In this episode, we find out more about the common cold: Does standing outside in the cold actually make it easier to get sick? Is there a cure that really works? Could there be a benefit to catching the rhinovirus? Listen for all the answers + the mystery sound! Do you have a question you want answered? Send it to brainson [at] mpr [dot] org.
