    Please tell Prof Barker (whose name I did not see listed among the hosts for the episode) how especially wonderful I have found her Immunology Lecture 5, Antiviral State and PRRs.

    The lecture was absolutely phenomenal!!! Her presentation of some of the complex elements and mechanisms of the cell’s innate response to infection was close to magical. Prof B’s infectious enthusiasm couldn’t be contained. I’ll return to it again.

    An appreciative life-long, distant learner.
