Such A Helpful Podcast!

Later in my life I fell in love with microbiology. This podcast has enriched my understanding and deepened my fascination. I would like nothing more than to meet Dr. Nour shake his hand and tell him “Thank you, Thank you”.

Context carefully considered - cool!

I like the way that this podcast describes interesting and potentially beneficial findings while giving listeners a crash course in the context behind them.

For instance, an episode on bacteriophages’ potential to help fight antibiotic resistant infection got into the relationship between how well the phages work and how the person’s immune system is doing. And the episode did not shy away from being specific about the fact that the important immune variable was how well the myeloid part of the immune system was functioning. That could be specific to the point of confusing some non-scientist listeners, but the host managed to work it in without either oversimplification (that would give the wrong message) or overcomplication (that would be inaccessible to many).

I think listening to this podcast would give people a good basis to continue learning and reading more. Whereas other shows that oversimplify and remove the scientific terminology almost completely are not giving their audiences the same kind of head start in advancing their knowledge.
