Long time fan

I’ve been listening on and off for years. I have literally no idea what these people are talking about at all. Their voices relax me. Vince talking about boring ish in a jersey accent gives me ASMR. Each episode is so long. It’s perfect for sleepy time relaxation.

I hope this podcast takes off, it’s a real hidden gem. It’s actually not that boring I was being funny. Keep em coming guys eventually some info will make it thru my thick skull lol ❤️❤️❤️🦠 🦠 🦠

go viral

Entertaining and fairly high level scientific info, delivered with the non-scientist as well as the professional biologist in mind. They discuss everything from molecular and cell biology to marine and plant viruses, emerging viral threats to people and domestic animals. The discussions are good humored and accessible. Related podcasts can be found at www.microbe.tv, there you can find the podcasts about microbiology, parasitology and immunology. HOW DOES THE RACANIELLO DO IT?? Support the podcast at Patreon.com

The science podcast that got me hooked on podcasts

Join Vincent and the gang for a lively discussion about viruses, virology, and virus-adjacent topics: stump-grinding, non-people ferrets, being nice to Dickson, and a heavy dose of puns.
