Description

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

Content is really, really interesting and the presenters seem knowledgeable but sorry to say the 'humorous' presentation is very annoying I've tried 3 times now but I've had to turn off each time.

Sandi D. Dykes I mean, I know why they're laughing. They just do it a lot. It gets distracting.

ProudtoDeath They are not laughing because they find it funny. They are Med students because they want to help find cures for infectious diseases. They laugh because they find it fascinating.

Hey guys, just a general update: the FEMMES OF STEM podcast that has been suggested in one of the episodes has been expired. It wouldn't load so I messaged castbox and they said the RRS OR RSS I forget has been expired. Bummer

I love this podcast so much. I literally tell everyone I know that they need to listen to this... pre this podcast I thought I had a basic knowledge of disease now I know that I didnt know anything about even the common/ well know ones!

Can you do an episode on Typhus? it's been declared that City of Los Angeles especially City Hall has a typhus outbreak ! It would be facsicnating to hear your spin on this one.

You guys mentioned in your episode on smallpox how guinea worm is another illness (along with polio) that is hopefully soon to be eradicated. Would you cover this for us- I’d be so curious!!

Please do an episode about hookworms in the U.S. Seems this is an ongoing problem in Alabama, etc. And hanta (?) virus in the southwest. How does decreased funding affect uncontrolled parasite illness? Thank you very much.

No one's commented here yet that I can see, but in response to the Yellow Fever episode title: The opening song contains reference to when Hamilton was 11 or 13 years old (there's conflicting info on his birth date) and he and his mother got sick (she died). Wikipedia cites 'Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary' (2017) by Martha Brockenbrough as identifying yellow fever as being his mother's cause of death, and presumably his illness. Though if that's true, it seems surprising he got it later, so I'm not sure about that. There's no other references to Hamilton (or his wife!) getting sick though, or anything at all about an epidemic in Philadelphia. You give us such well researched and explained episodes, it only seemed fair to answer your question too! Even if it is almost a year later. I'm loving this podcast by the way! This and Sawbones are my go-to podcasts at the moment.

The intro was good, then the giggling wasnt appropriate. I wanted to turn it off right away. What you have to remember is this REALLY happened! I'll TRY to listen, but seriously...
