Hey there TWIM team

I am a Veterinary Microbiologist in Cork in Ireland!

Long time listener of all the TWIX series and I love everyone of them.

I work in a diagnostic lab in cork and the only thing that gets me through the day is your podcasts and buckets of tea.

Thanks for the wonderful podcasts :)

Hello TWiM crew,

I listen to all the TWiX family, but TWiM happens to be my favorite, closely followed by TWiEvo.  Here's hoping I'm #19!  Hope yinz (Pittsburgh plural of you) have a fantastic 2017!

I'm sending this e-mail and hope to be the lucky recipient of the two volume book Manual of Clinical Microbiology.

I am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner practicing in a group practice in Southern California. I subscribe to TWIM, TWIV, and TWIP.  I find all of these to be quite enjoyable and informative.

Of note, I recently attended a Pediatric conference last year and one of the Speakers was Michael E. Pickering, MD who is the Director of Rochester General Hospital Research institute and Research Professor in the Health Sciences and Technology at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York.  One of his lectures was "It's in the nose:   Pathogenesis and immunity".  He presented the research on the microbiome of the nasopharynx and the innate immune response there.  I know more research from his department is on going and hopefully you and your colleagues at TWIM will keep a lookout for research papers about this exciting research and it's practical application to practice guidelines for care.

Now I'm off to enjoy my sunny 58 degree weather and look forward to continued listening you podcasts.

Greetings TWIMers!

I just listened to your most recent episode of TWIM (#143), and definitely want to stake my claim for the free book.

Because I don’t want to just send a blank email with only a subject, I just want to say that I’ve loved your show, and have been a dedicated listener for about a year now. I’m a graduate student in the Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology program at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and I’m currently rotating in Erin Goley’s lab, which studies the biochemistry of FtsZ. I love your TWIIX series for all the interesting papers you bring up; they occasionally provide really cool papers for me to bring up in journal club.

Thanks for being awesome.

Dear twimers,

I'm here to try my luck in the contest. There probably hasn't been 19 emails yet(?) but I missed the past few contests on the other twi podcasts so I'd rather send in this email sooner than later.

Thanks for hosting this really engaging podcast. It has taught me a lot of microbiology while keeping my mind engaged while working in the lab.

Look forward to an exciting twi year ahead.

Best Regards,
Wan Yi From Singapore
