Clever and Captivating
I am a research scientist that has never taken a parasitology course yet I find myself in a bird parasite research lab. I saw this podcast and started to listen from the 60th or so episode... It was so good that after listening to a couple of episodes from the middle I went back to the beginning and have now listened to 40+ episodes and every single one has kept me wanting to learn more. This duo knows how to effectively teach while making it seem like your listening to someone tell a story around a campfire. Truly a wonderful and informative podcast that is good for anyone to listen.
