  1. Anecdote shows like this one add a human spin on the study of parasite and parasitism. I really enjoyed this week's show and would love to hear shows like this on a weekly basis. (I'd like to hear some TWiVs that are in the same vein as well.) On a slightly unrelated I would also subscribe to a TWiB if it became available. Though I have no educational experience in the field of microbiology outside of what I have learned through the internet and in my high school biology courses I find your shows completely irresistible. Your podcasts make me want to shift my undergraduate program from my generic liberal arts degree to hard science.
  2. Miso, thanks for your comments. Glad you liked this slightly different episode. We'll aim to do the same with TWiV. As for TWiB - stay tuned; it's in the planning stages.
