The alphanumeric soup known as influenza

21 January 2014

Robert Herriman, co-founder of The Global Dispatch, recently started a radio show called Outbreak News This Week. Robert calls the show “Your source for all the news about worms and germs”. He covers the latest news and information about infectious diseases and often includes interviews with expert guests. The show can be heard live Saturday mornings at 7:30 am EST on on The Tan Talk Radio Network: 1340 AM WTAN Clearwater, 1350 AM WDCF Dade City and 1400 AM WZHR Zephyrhills. You can also listen online.

I have been a frequent guest on Robert’s Outbreak News This Week, most recently this past Saturday, when we had a broad-ranging conversation about influenza virus. We also managed to squeeze in a few words about my favorite virus, poliovirus, and India’s success in remaining polio-free for three years. Listen below.
