Dan hosted me on Roughly Speaking to give my Top 5 list of the germs to watch in the coming year, many of which (I hope) will not cause much excitement:

5. Influenza
4. Zika
3. Ebola
2. Multi-drug resistant bacteria
1. ? the next big plague we don’t know about yet?
Bonus: HIV

Listen here for opining on the relevance (or not) of the above.

Dan Rodricks has migrated his audio work from NPR to the new podcast audio show from the Baltimore Sun, Roughly Speaking. Needless to say, it’s an outstanding program, especially for anyone interested in keeping their finger on the pulse of all things Baltimore. This past Friday, Dan interviewed me for a primer on the latest newsworthy emerging pathogen, Zika virus. I also discussed happenings with HIV in Baltimore on a previous show, and am looking forward to being on with him every month or so. More to come!
