First time listener

I listened to the episode about Encephalitis Lethargica - wow! You had my attention through the entire podcast, and I look forward to hearing more of them. My med student son will love this too (when he actually has time to listen). Fascinating stuff!!

Great podcast

As a nurse in college health, this podcast is so applicable. The Erin’s explanations are entertaining and easy to comprehend. Be sure to Listen to vaccines 1&2.....have learned and enter every episode to date. Gotta love the quarantinies too!!

My new favorite podcast

I’m super picky about podcasts and kind of have a short attention span, but I can listen to this all day at my office job! I have always geeked out on biology so this podcast feeds my soul, plus the Erins are both so personable, compassionate, smart, and funny. I like how they present the podcast like a conversation rather than a dramatic show. They also explain everything really well, so you don’t have to have a background in immunology or even biology to understand what they are talking about. I can’t recommend this enough!
