I always think that if this had been what journal club was like, it would have been a lot more fun. Just talking through good papers and good science (without picking apart every figure) and having some laughs. Good times!
Make sure you checkout TWIV too! They got YouTube videos and a lot of resources on their website.
This is a 10/10 as well as all the podcasts made by the same host, highly recommend.
I love this podcast and have been listening for years. I appreciate the vast scope of microbiology that is covered as well as the integration of current events. Each one of the hosts makes you feel like you know them personally. My first ASM-Microbe conference was in Atlanta a couple of years ago and admit that I was a complete fan girl when I got a seat during the the TWIM live taping.
You just can’t escape politics even here, stop it already! I just want to listen about biology.
