Good first episode

I’ve loved diseases and epidemiology ever since I did a senior year project on Ebola in high school in ‘06. This sounds like it’s going to be a great pod, how ever I too hope they will go on to cover other diseases and related subjects. It’s incredibly fascinating and engaging stuff.

A step forward for NH

This podcast is the most honest reporting coming from NH, and especially NHPR, about Lyme. The first four were very good, but took a nose dive on the fifth. It was a waste of an opportunity to focus on just one clinic that has questionable treatments. Found this 5th podcast harmful to all who didn’t have the fortune to get swift treatment like the producers did (Quimby et al) for the acute stage and their recovery was quick. To mock those who are suffering as hypochondriacs or paranoid with long term symptoms who were misdiagnosed and ignored by their doctors for years is falling back to your old harmful rhetoric. Hope the last two will be back on track. It’s long overdue for the NH medical community to take Tick Borne Diseases seriously and help their patients. Stigmas have no place in healing. It begins with unbiased education.

Very boring unless you have a Lyme disease connection

No idea how they have dragged this pod out for so many episodes. It has become so tedious and boring. You’re bombarded with tidbits of information from random voices and “experts” that are often unidentified. It is mind numbing. If you’re affected by Lyme, I could see how it may be of interest. Just not for me, and I really like medical information.
