Samantha Ettus interviews microbe hunter Dr. Philip Tierno aka “Dr. Germ” (video)

Gary Vay-ner-chuck host of the popular web series WineLibrary.tv has a new collaborative project with Samantha Ettus. Their show, Obsessed TV goes one on one with some of today's more notorious people. On this episode Sam talks with Dr. Philip Tierno a.k.a. Dr. Germ and author of The Secret Life of Germs. Dr. Tierno is the head of microbiology and immunology at NYU and has made appearances on the Today Show and been an adviser to Mayor Rudy Giuliani. In this video you'll learn all about our relationship with microbes and how they affect us on a daily basis. Dr Tierno dispels some common myths about microbes and reveals that he himself is more germophobic then the average person. Half way through the interview, Gary himself jumps in to share some wine with Dr. Tierno and reveal some of his own personal quirks when it comes to germs.
