Ah, summer is finally here, and I can relax for just a little bit before I am sent off to a far away land to do some epidemiological stuff. Let me tell you all about it in about five minutes time. As always, you can download the episode here, or subscribe to it on [...]
Yes, I know that it's not Friday and that I haven't been keeping up with the podcast. Here's why... You can download the podcast by clicking here.
I apologize for the audio quality at some points. I was driving, and it's obvious that I have a wire throwing out some interference someplace. Almost 18 minutes of me telling you what I think about the measles outbreak and about me calling a radio station to kind of influence the discussion on vaccines. Pardon [...]

When an elected US Senator tells us that you can get Ebola at a cocktail party, you have to ask yourself two questions: What kind of cocktail parties does he attend? And exactly what science and virology book he read this from? I don't think he read anything about it, personally. Anyway, listen to my rant. Or don't. I won't hold it against you if you don't.
