real info

TWIV has been a voice of reason amid the miasma of balderdash for the past couple of years -- I was better informed far in advance about what to expect from the vaccines (i.e., not to expect long-term sterilizing immunity) than I ever have been by public health bigwigs. I'll be forever grateful to TWIV for having made it abundantly clear what was known and not known at any given time during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Thank you for keeping my blood pressure under control.

Terrific!!!

Been listening for over a year. Love it! Feels like I know these people and appreciate how their expertise and discussion make the pandemic less frightening!

Over my head too but worth it

This is a fascinating podcast, even though I have no background in virology. A lot goes by me but I understand enough to tell that these are scientists we can all learn from. And they’re funny too. I’m hooked!
