Relevant fuer jeden

Viren betreffen uns alle. Hier werden die neuesten fachlichen Zusammenhänge, aber auch die Grundlagen erklärt und in einer lockeren Diskussion vertieft. Es macht einfach Spass, zuzuhören.

Love love LOVE this podcast!

Great commentary on both basic science and current events in virology. I find it fantastic that they answer every email they get and the bantering is hilarious. Vince, Dick, Alan, and the gang have been keeping me company at my lab bench - Dick's my favourite character on the show! Nice complement to a virology course or for those who just want a slightly deeper understanding of virology.

Great show on viruses from an academic perspective

This is a great podcast performed in a style of a casual scientific discussion which could take place in any university cafeteria or at any scientific conference, as well. Three people, Prof. Racaniello, Prof. Despommier (both at Columbia Univ. NYC) and Dr. Dove discuss recent events in virology. It's highly informative and fun, too, because they do a good job to mix it up with jokes :-) They particularly succeed in addressing a wide audience by explaining difficult subjects in a way everybody can understand them, without oversimplyfication. They always have guests on the show as well.
I highly recommend this show for everybody interested in the science of infectious diseases. Being a virologist myself I also strongly recommend it to students of that subject (undergrad to PhD) and fellow virologists, as well. It's always refreshing and inspiring to listen and join a discussion on a particular subject. The latter is possible here, because the hosts do a wonderful job in responding to every email they receive from the audience. And for those who want to explore a certain topic from the show, the podcast's website contains numerous show notes with links to papers, websites and book recommendations.
Best podcast ot there, in my opinion.
