This podcast might not actually kill you, but it covers so many things that can. Each episode tackles a different disease, from its history, to its biology, and finally, how scared you need to be. Ecologists and epidemiologists Erin Welsh and Erin Allmann Updyke make infectious diseases acceptable fodder for dinner party conversation and provide the perfect cocktail recipe to match

Customer Reviews

Come for the biology and stay for the great chemistry

This is a great podcast. The Erins do a really good job of making sure you understand the science behind different diseases, but also do a nice job of enhancing everything with interesting facts and historical context. They do this all while still keeping it conversational and entertaining. Definitely worth a listen!

Grab a Quarantini!

This podcast is basically My Favorite Murder, if the murderers were viruses and bacteria. It’s fantastic. Cheers!

The science lesson you always wished you had in school

This is deep science discussed in a way this is both interesting and fun. The Erins do an amazing job giving you the concepts that you don’t know without making you feel bad for not knowing them. I CANNOT WAIT for season 2!!
