Season 3 of "24" was a gripping story arc involving the release of a weaponized virus. Iverson, a bioterror expert, discussed plot points from several episodes. He referred to several scholarly articles available via library databases, which directly addressed the show's depiction of a bioterror event. Attendees learned that the script writers on "24" had done their homework well, presenting a mostly plausible scenario.
