Great podcast

I love learning about infectious diseases!

Very good podcast with good explanations, even for non-science people.

Hilarious women in science!

This podcast is fantastic. I saw some negative reviews that I don’t understand. Like the complaints of the hosts ‘giggling’... first of all these women are drinking cocktails while discussing topics they love (which causes giggles), and also you don’t have to be a stale, lifeless human to be intelligent! The second complaint I’ve seen was that the hosts get too ‘political’, which I disagree with. They stay on topic remarkably well. Another note, I quite enjoy learning about how politics play a role in disease and the spread of disease, it is something I never thought much about until listening to this podcast, and it’s absolutely fascinating. Keep up the work ladies, this is an informative and entertaining podcast!
