Dear TWiM hosts,

My lab's journal club is doing this paper today, and I thought it'd be a good fit for TWiM (or maybe even TWiEVO). It's about insect endosymbionts that regulate their own virulence through quorum sensing...

Dear TWiM hosts (and associated microbiomes),

I came across this heartbreaking News & Views article in Nature yesterday and thought it would be worth talking about on TWiM:

Will this be on TWiX?

I recognized Dr. Hotez's name from TWiP.

Though in TWiM 157 Dr. Schaechter was mistaken concerning the brand, calcium carbonate indeed is an ingredient in antacid remedies.

Hi Vincent,

I was listening to TWIM 149 on my bike ride to work this morning and would just like to express my complete support of all the arguments in favour of mSphere direct way of publishing discussed in this episode.

Dear TWIM,

In episode #157 on Moonmilk there was some discussion about its medicinal properties. Calcium Carbonate is the active ingredient in Tums! In addition, Elio may find it interesting that CaCO3 is a very popular additive in the cultivation of fungi. Amateur mushroom growers often add ground up oyster shells to improve growth...

I love symbionts!

Hello fellow symbiophiles!

It has been a long time since I first thought of writing to you to thank you for all the wonderful work you put into all the TWiX podcasts. Today, the inducement of the Microbe book give-away finally moved this desire to the top of the (long) to do list.

I first started listening to TWiV to get up-to-date with my virology, but quickly added TWiM, TWiP and, more recently, TWiEvo to my favourite podcasts list. Just before starting this e-mail I was looking at the list of shows in the website and I am now tempted to add all the remaining ones to my subscription list - I need longer days, please!! ...

My name is Hope, and I'm a rising high school senior from Maine. I absolutely love listening to TWiM and learning what I can from it. I listen to your podcasts every night when I go to bed (although it bores my 12-year-old sister to tears). When I graduate high school, I would like to pursue a degree in Molecular/Cellular Biology, and TWiM has played a large role in encouraging that interest of mine. Thank you for all that you do!
