Hi again. I really like this podcast. I just came home from Thailand with a stomach bug that everyone around me (none of which are trained medical professionals of course) believes is giardia, so of course I listened to that episode first. Anyway, as awesome and inclusive as this episode was in terms of defining and classifying parasites no plant parasites were mentioned! Of course I know that this is primarily a medical podcast, but it would've been neat to hear a sentence or 2 about the fact that plants can also act as parasites (e.g. the hemiparasitic genus Pedicularis). I'm grateful for this free entry into the world of parasites, thanks so much.
