Wound infections are common after crocodile attacks and, therefore, prophylactic antimicrobial therapy is advised. However, there are limited data to guide recommendations for the optimal empirical regimen.

Episode 150 was the best episode I’ve heard so far (Having listened for a couple of years now I guess).  I absolutely loved hearing about science jobs and the intersection of pure science, medicine and patients.  I will add, that is my fav part of TWIP too.  Just awesome.

I have written before, but this episode really hit me.  As a displaced and more or less retired Pharma rep with a double major in Biology and Chemistry I am actually going to look in to the possibility of a career change to medical laboratory technologist. It might be too late for me at 52 and being in a wheelchair but it is SO VERY interesting to me that I feel like I need to do my do-diligence to see if it might be a fit for me in some way.

Thanks for all you guys do on all the TWIx programs!

All the best,

Dear Twimmers,

here is my listener´s pic of the week, a video from the NYT, portraying a biohacker who “attempted to replace all his bacteria”…

Maybe you already know it. I wonder what your thoughts about that (possible??) project are!

Keep on the fantastic TWIX-work,

many greetings (again) from Wiesbaden, Germany

I have interrupted my morning walk because I think you contradicted yourself on TWIM. You said that you are evolutionarily superfluous when you can’t reproduce. Yet, your podcast leads to the increased survival of humans you will never meet. Thanks for keeping our species going!
