Description

This Week in Virology (TWiV) is a podcast - or netcast, as some prefer to call them, since you don’t need an iPod to listen - about viruses. It is hosted by Vincent Racaniello and Dick Despommier, two science Professors at Columbia University Medical Center. Their goal is to have an informal yet informative conversation about viruses which would be accessible to everyone, no matter what their science background. We wanted to eventually bring other virologists into the conversation, to make it more varied and interesting. Alan Dove, a science writer, joined us late in the year and we’ve had a few guests. Our goal for 2009 is to bring even more guests to TWiV.
