    Vincent, Dick,

    you guys are fantastic!

    THANK YOU

    I am loving TWIP and the way you guys work together makes it really fun to listen to.

    So far it is easier to follow than TWIV, presumably because (a) it is the start of the series and (b) parasites being larger than vaccines we don't have to know all about dna replication and intra-cellular machinery.

    I have _watched_ the beginning of TWIV60 and I think it looks great to be able to show us the occasional picture or diagram. I hope that it doesn't add to the required effort to much so that you can use it often. Obviously too much use of it would break the podicast-iness of the shows which I expect you would be reluctant to do.

    My only concern is that I have to wait 1 month for the next episode of TWIP!

    Best wishes
    Felix
