When you're fighting off a cold or flu, it's easy to imagine the battle is being waged solely inside the confines of your body. But in order to spread, pathogens rely on nearly every aspect of our shared societies. Food and drink, social customs, our proximity to animals, urban design, income inequality: The science of epidemiology connects them all. Patient Zero investigates the spaces where people and pathogens collide. Learn more at www.patientzeropodcast.com. A production of New Hampshire Public Radio.

Absolutely fascinating

Not just the issues around Lyme disease but also the broader issues of public health policy implementation and epidemiology.

Another pro vaccine reporter.

Look into the Wakefield study. You reported that he committed fraud. He was accused of it but later exonerated. Watch VAXXED. I dare you.

Educates & Entertains

As a regular hiker and camper, I was marginally interested in this topic. But the quality of the storytelling sucked me in. It’s the kind of reporting and writing that is harder and harder to find. It’s weird to say I was “entertained” by such a debilitating disease, but the series is just so interesting and informative. Taylor Quimby clearly spent a ton of time working on this podcast, and it shows. Really well done.

Great podcast!

I’m a pharmacist training in infectious diseases and I think this podcast is very well-researched! May be more interesting for people with medical/science background than those without.

Love it

Really enjoyed this. Very well researched podcast. Podcast host was fun to listen to - good storyteller good sense of humor - and occasionally skips vowels in the words like “important” - adorable.

So Far, alright

I’m only on the first episode but already they left the address of where the interviewee lives in the podcast and did not bleep it out. I realize the aesthetic is kinda cool but freely telling people where someone lives is not. Will have to see if the podcast improves as I go.

Really Disappointing

There is a congressional call to discover whether our government played a role in the initiation of Lyme Disease, and yet this is never even mentioned or alluded to. Lyme CT’s proximity to Plum Island and the infestation map alone is enough to raise questions, and yet again, not only is this never brought up, we’re told that climate change is probably responsible. Seriously? What has happened to journalism in this country? Especially on a podcast labeled “Patient Zero”??

Overproduced and Missing Major Information

I am halfway through the last episode and there is no mention of Kris Newby's book "Bitten" or Rep. Chris Smith's probe into wheter Lyme Disease is the result of bioweapons research. Whether you believe that theory or not, it seems incredibly misleading to not even mention it.

Balancing the Stars

Ok, maybe not 5 stars but it is very, very good. It’s a heady podcast infused with the politics of the disease. If that sounds like your thing... listen away. If it sounds boring, then pass. I loved it!

Great listen

This podcast is incredibly well researched, the sound design is great, and the information is presented in such a way that even someone without medical knowledge or experience will be able to understand it. Episode 5 may be one of the best podcast episodes I’ve listened to, seriously. This is a must listen!
