Incredible!

I LOVE this show! The two part podcast on vaccines should be required listening for all parents (the one on measles too). The Erins (funny they have the same name) are both knowledgeable and relatable, breaking things down for non-scientific people like me. Listing your resources is fabulous. Almost as good as the info provided are the quarantinis and placebaritas.

Bummer

I’m so disappointed in this podcast. At first I loved it. I thought the Erins were hilarious and presented the material in a way that was engaging. I love learning about viruses and bacteria and I thought that aspect was awesome. I recommended this podcast to anyone and everyone... Unfortunately I did so pre-maturely. I wish that there was less politics and less anti-American sentiment included in this podcast. An opportunity to teach about infectious diseases is not the time or place to push political agenda.

I just finished season 1 and I’m not sure if I’m interested in starting season 2.

Awesome Info!

I work at an independent medical lab, my boss, our lab manager told me about this podcast and then we introduced it to our microbiologist, who is working on going into public health. Because of the population we work with and our general job, we love listening and discussing the podcasts.
