  • This Week in Parasitism

    twip_01small

    This Week in Parasitism (TWiP) is a podcast about eukaryotic parasites hosted by Vincent Racaniello and Dick Despommier. Following in the path of their successful podcast 'This Week in Virology' (TWiV), they strive for an informal yet informative conversation about parasites which is accessible to everyone, no matter what their science background.

    As science Professors at Columbia University, they have spent their entire academic careers directing research laboratories focused on parasites (Dick) and viruses (Vincent). Their enthusiasm for teaching inspired them to reach beyond the classroom with new media. TWiP is for everyone who wants to learn about parasites in a relaxing way.

    Music used on TWiP is composed and performed by Ronald Jenkees and used with permission.

  • The Dish

    koshland-dish Join MicrobeWorld and the Marian Koshland Science Museum for The Dish, a Café Scientifique style event that you can attend in person if you are in Washington, D.C. area or view online here.

    Rather than listening passively to a scientist discuss his or her work, the idea behind "The Dish" is to encourage audience members, in person and online, to ask questions and dig deeper into a particular subject area. The goal of the conversation between the scientist and the audience is not only to inform and entertain but to increase both the expert's and non-expert's understanding of the issues in a casual atmosphere.

  • BacterioFiles
    The podcast for microbe lovers: reporting on exciting news about bacteria, archaea, and sometimes even eukaryotic microbes and viruses. Hosted by Jesse Noar.

  • This Week in Microbiology

    vincentThis Week in Microbiology (TWiM) is a podcast about unseen life on Earth hosted by Vincent Racaniello and friends. Following in the path of his successful shows 'This Week in Virology' (TWiV) and 'This Week in Parasitism' (TWiP), Racaniello and guests produce an informal yet informative conversation about microbes which is accessible to everyone, no matter what their science background.

    As a science Professor at Columbia University, Racaniello has spent his academic career directing a research laboratory focused on viruses. His enthusiasm for teaching inspired him to reach beyond the classroom using new media. TWiM is for everyone who wants to learn about the science of microbiology in a casual way.

    While there are no exams or pop quizzes, TWiM does encourage interaction with the audience via comments on specific episodes (below), vial email and voicemail at 908-312-0760. Listeners can also use MicrobeWorld to suggest topics for the show by submitting articles or papers to the site and tagging them with "TWiM". Each week Racaniello will view the tagged content and select items for discussion.

    TWiM co-hosts include Elio SchaechterMichael Schmidt, and Michele Swanson.

  • Meet the Scientist

    zimmersolo

    At Meet the Scientist, we want to reveal more about scientists, the work they do, and what makes them tick. We will ask them what they are are up to now and what is next. How is the science moving forward to solve some of the intractable problems of our times? What keeps them going in a tough, competitive field? What do they see for the future of research, education, and training? We hope to show you a glimpse of what scientists are really like and what is going on in cutting-edge research today.

  • This Week in Virology

    twiv

    This Week in Virology (TWiV) is a podcast – or netcast, as some prefer to call them, since you don’t need an iPod to listen – about viruses. It was begun in September 2008 by Vincent Racaniello and Dick Despommier, two science Professors at Columbia University Medical Center. Their goal was to have an informal yet informative conversation about viruses which would be accessible to everyone, no matter what their science background. We wanted to eventually bring other virologists into the conversation, to make it more varied and interesting. Alan Dove, a science writer, joined us late in 2008, and Rich Condit, a poxvirologist, joined in 2009. We’ve had a number of guests on the show and we’re always trying to get more.

    Why are we doing this? Dick, Rich, and I have spent our entire academic careers directing research laboratories, so we have a lot of knowledge to share. Plus, we both enjoy teaching. Put those two things together, and you have TWiV. If you want to learn about viruses in a relaxing way, then TWiV is for you.

  • Program 1: The Tree of Life
    As scientists map the human genome, they find the ancient DNA of microbes at the roots of our family tree. This hour follows the quest of scientists to understand how all life on the planet - from E. coli to azaelas to us - is related.
  • Program 2: Keepers of the Biosphere

    Microbes drive the chemistry of life. They affect the global climate. They do most of the recycling that keeps the world habitable. This hour follows scientists as they explore our reliance on this invisible world for our planet's health and well-being.

  • Program 3: Dangerous Friends and Friendly Enemies

    Infectious diseases occur when our relationship with microbes changes or when an intruder invades. This hour follows scientists who seek to understand our most personal relationships with the microscopic world, which usually keeps us well but sometimes makes us sick.

  • Program 4: Creators of the Future

    The 21st century challenges us to reclaim our damaged environment and feed a growing population. This hour introduces scientists who are turning to microbes for solutions and the tiny organisms who are making new cleanup technologies possible.

  • TWiM iTunes Reviews

    TWiM listeners have spent their valuable time writing comments about the podcast on iTunes, and it’s a shame that most people don’t see them. I’m putting them here as a way of thanking them for their time, and for listening. This is a work-in-progress because the comments have to be typed here by hand; for some reason you can’t copy/paste them from iTunes.

  • ASM's Microbes After Hours

    In May 2012, the American Society for Microbiology launched a new Happy Hour series called “Microbes After Hours” which gathers together scientists and curious citizens at ASM headquarters in Washington DC for relaxed evenings of appetizers, local brews and exciting microbiology talks by renowned experts.  Since the inaugural session, the series has tackled topics such as “Microbes and Microbrews: the Microbiology of Brewing Beer,” “The Human Microbiome: My Microbes, Myself,” and “The Return of Influenza.”  The series has grown beyond its local roots to bring together scientists and enthusiastic learners from all over the globe through live broadcasts on MicrobeWorld.
