Invaluable Resource

How wonderful to have easy concise information available on a variety of topics from the best in their respective fields. I love being able to refer people to Genome Barks when I know a particular topic would be of interest to them; even my vets. It is invaluable to have such a trustworthy and well-researched source of information.

good info, terrible sound quality

Although the information is mostly pretty good, the sound recording quality is so terrible I cant listen to it. It sounds like they recorded the episodes on my cell phone. When they buy a better microphone, I will subscribe again. for now, *delete*

Genome Barks

These are very informative little lectures that take only minutes to hear. I typically listen to them when I need a break from writing (I am a breed magazine editor). They give me a break and I learn something in the process. Looking forward to hearing many more topics in the future -- maybe something on care of neonates?
