We live in an increasingly complicated world. As winter approaches and COVID-19 infections are on the rise across the country, it would be comforting to have a definitive source for all things pandemic and all things coronavirus.
Enter Jason Tetro, host of podcast Super Awesome Science Show, to lessen the burden and ease our minds.
In Season 2 of the weekly Curiouscast podcast, Tetro explores the science behind pandemics with the help of some of the brightest minds in the field today.
Better known as “The Germ Guy,” Tetro is an independent researcher in microbiology and immunology. Tetro has been lauded for his active championing of science education, regularly contributing to print and broadcast media. As an author, he’s published multiple books on humans’ relationship with microbes, including national bestseller The Germ Files.
“This show is about science that matters to everyone,” said Tetro. “It’s a fun way to learn something new and I’m hoping people who don’t normally listen to science podcasts will tune in. I guarantee they will find the topics both interesting and also useful in their daily lives.”
COVID-19 has inundated our work lives, our home lives and nearly every facet of our day-to-day.
