    Vincent You has Richard Kessin on Episode 35 and he talked about a lot of history and it was a great show. You said that you would have him to talk more about history and yet I have searched and he is only listed for that on show. Are you ever going to have him back? I will try to write a e-mail as well.

    This is not technically about the podcast, but I am looking for quality paintings/pictures of some microbes for my office. Any ideas who sells good ones? You may want to consider on your website. There must be some artists willing to create them!
