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.
Hey Gary, remember that gay buddy of yours that you tried to save and he offed himself? I LOL’d at that! I LOL’d hard at you crying that night and that sappy vid you posted LOL !!!
Rich does want to return. He’s left Columbia so we’ll have to arrange it with his schedule, but I do want a return visit.
Hey Gary, your 16 year old buddy killed himself LOL, you got upset and blamed it on other people HHAHAHAHA…. He was homosexual, and weak piece of crap! He was a lump of cells who cares!
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!
I just interviewed a microbial artist, Michele Banks, for an upcoming TWiV. Check out her creations at Artologica. Also see my list of microbial artists at http://www.virology.ws/art/
