In this show, I report on four exciting stories: bacteria for digesting sushi; a giant virus that replicates itself, with help; microbes living in Mars-like lakes; and using viruses to generate hydrogen.

  1. Enjoyable podcast. I met one of the postdocs who worked on the sushi project at the Gordon Research Conference last summer. It is a really interesting body of work!
  2. Thanks! I agree: it's very interesting. I'm always fascinated to hear how much such small organisms affect us!
  3. Jesse, I enjoy your podcast a lot. My only comment would be that it would be great if you could put them out once a week instead of every other week. I find this to be a great resource for keeping up with the latest research published. I usually listen to it on my commute to work. I think in time you will become even more comfortable on the mic, but that comes with experience and practice. Hope this helps.
  4. Thanks, Chris! I would like to put them out weekly, but I don't know if I have the time at this point. Maybe if I find a co-host that would be more feasible. I am glad you find it helpful. Out of curiosity, what do you think the target audience for this sort of podcast is/should be?
  5. I think the target is educators and students, although researchers and the general public can find value in your podcast too. You distill down some complex papers in your episodes which is very helpful for getting people interested in the science and helps explain the importance of the results in way anyone can understand.
