This series is from New Hampshire Public Radio and is about Lyme Disease. Unlike many other science podcasts, which are episodic one-offs about different science topics, this podcast really comprehensively dives in to this particular disease, covering its history, epidemiology, treatments, controversies, etc. It is extremely well-researched and the scientific nuances are explained very well. It is a public radio show, so it isn't super zany or wild or anything, but if you are at all interested in Lyme disease or epidemiology, I highly suggest this show.
Very informative and well researched. I just didn't find it very exciting. Episodes seemed a little long and wandering at times, but it was nice to have on while at work since you didn't necessarily have to pay super close attention.
