Elizbeth ,

I just love it.

I love the precision and clarity of this podcast. It's no nonsense and SUPER nerdy. Awesome.

Princess Gecko ,

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.

Huldena ,

Interesting but very poor production quality

So bad you can’t understand what the guest is saying. It’s painful to try to listen.
