    Fortunately I was not on my bike; I was just packing to ride home. Good thing too because I nearly fell over laughing at the whole gag about the bicycle. This is a great episode. I like the humor. Keep up the great work

  2. I look forward to the parasitology podcast, sounds like a great idea.

    • We aren't sure if a parasitology podcast would be of interest – so thanks for the feedback. We will definitely do it and let the listeners decide if it's useful.

        I can second Noadi, I'm definitely interested in the parasitology podcast.

  3. Dick D. and I are recording the first episode of the parasitology
    podcast this month.

    Dear Prof Racaniello,'
    First of all I would like to say ” I really appreciate about this PodCast of This Week in Virology, after I listened to your PodCast about Viral Genome now I could understand how the replication of viral genome occurs, unfortunately I could not get the transcript of this episode.

    Best Regards
