TWiP 16 Letters

Dear Mr. Racaniello and Dick,

Thanks for TWIV and TWIP as both are great shows. Such a give and take of history, information and humor. Stumbled across TWIP several weeks ago and gave it a try. My only disappointment was there were not many podcasts. Thought I would try TWIV and to my delight found that TWIV was not a new podcast so there were many hours available for my listening enjoyment. No pressure here but if you can more than once a month would be great.

No disrespect to Dick in my greeting but I feel a certain familiarity towards Dick, so the greating Mr. Racaniello and Dick, as I happened to pick up some prime specimens of what he spent much of his academic life studying. Some ten year back I spent a bit of time bumming around Venezuela and as they say the rest is history. It was fun listening to the two of you cover this topic in episodes three and four.

Thanks for sharing your insight and humor with the rest of us.

Vince and Dick,

An hour-long Radiolab.org broadcast about famous tumors includes a discussion of the Tasmanian Devil tumors during which the question is asked whether these communicable tumors can be considered a parasite. What do you guys think? That segment is covered in about the first 15 mins. of the program.

The HeLa cells are also nicely discussed and linked to polio research.... The Radio Lab guys do good work, just like you dudes!

Got ten buckets of great peaches off one of our two peach trees, finally, after ten years of trial-and-error; my lab.... Had to use malathion at the end and regret that, but the stuff sure works well.

Dear TWiP,

I am a 3rd year medical student here at Columbia. Dr. Despommier actually interviewed me when I applied and had a lot to do with my decision to choose this school, and then he told us about TWiV during a Parasitology small group session last fall and had a lot to do with my listening to this show when I should be studying for exams!

I thought you would get a few seconds of amusement from a medical student's interpretation of one of Dr. Despommier's lectures. Please see the attached PDF with a portion of my notes from the first Parasitology lecture he gave last fall.

Sincerely,

Heather

I just wanted to make sure you saw this:

Apparently a mosquito has been genetically altered to be resistant to malaria. I haven't had a chance to read the PLoS article, but maybe you'll find this interesting.
