I just love it.
I love the precision and clarity of this podcast. It's no nonsense and SUPER nerdy. Awesome.
Thank you for producing this content weekly
Very informative and entertaining
I love the information in this because I want to study epidemiology in college. The interviews are done amazingly and I learn stuff every time I listen. I thought the anaplasmosis and legionella épisodes were very interesting and I wanted to know more so I looked online at the statistics. Also sorry if this sounds weird I just got my wisdom teeth out and I’m in a lot of pain but listening to the podcast helps distract me. Thank you.
