About Us

November 1, 2017

Erin Welsh and Erin Allmann Updyke are two graduate students studying disease ecology. Feeling disillusioned with parts of the scientific community, they decided to start this podcast as a way to communicate with their friends, family, and the non-scientific community about their favorite thing to talk about: infectious disease. They're pretty sure that everyone, scientist or not, can find something to love in this podcast, or, at the very least, everyone can learn something new to gross out Aunt Edna at Thanksgiving this year.
