Hello Immune Generals

I am thrilled to have found your podcast. This is exactly what a basic immunology master turned a full time wife and mom in chief needs in her life. Thank you, thank you!

No episode on Li-Meng Yan

Also, that the platypus would be considered a potential vector for COVID *evolution* is pathetic. Transmission? MAYBE. But it is an endangered species! Do you understand the Wright/Fischer maths on population genetics? There are no such things as “infinite pangolins” ...

it’s as if the institutions of science are terminally politicized or have such overinflated egos as to be exhibiting some kind of institutional meningitis. Absolutely pathetic. Between these 3 things — 1️⃣ lack of *real discussion* on Li-Meng Yan 2️⃣ pangolins as inpossibly endangered vectors and 3️⃣ lack of coverage on the importance of “micro-zinc” or bioavailable zinc — modern science and esp. health research has lost all credibility. I have looked at Yan’s research and it is unbelievable how her work has been smeared. There are serious problems in “peer review” and related processes that science can just defame her and trash her research in mainstream media. PATHETIC

Excellent on many levels

The hosts and guests give thorough explanations of the topics at hand. They describe and explain things with an emphasis on the fundamentals. Then they delve into the more technical aspects. Their approach appeals to those new to the topic as well as experts and anyone in between.
