This Podcast Will Kill You

Reviews For This Podcast Will Kill You

My favorite part is the intro narrative. Some are kinda scarey. I've spent a number of years listening to infectious disease podcasts, but this one covers some of the diseases we rarely hear about today. Keep up the great work.
I found this podcast through MFM/Exactly Right and it became one of my favorite podcasts within the first 2-3 episodes, I’ve recommended it to many friends and talk about it regularly. Your presentation on the AIDS pandemic (episode 12) is incredible and both heartbreaking and heartwarming. You handled a terrible topic with caring and consideration for the people affected by it. Thanks for what you’re doing!
Ignorance can spread faster than any of the virus leading to results that we have seen in the past. Thank you for having such a good podcast. I have learned some facts in the past two days that i have been listening. The story behind patient O was interesting and I shared right away with some of my friends. And I’m fully enraged about Betty Price and her inquiry about quarantining HIV patients. I haven’t heard about that before. I don’t want to use then word quarantine but I guess I just mentioned it as Betty price would say but she and other old politicians perhaps need to be send off to summer camp and get updated information in important issues so they don’t go around spreading ignorance and they can receive knowledge and become immune to ignorance. Thank you for sharing and spreading your knowledge girls. I need a quarantini cocktail to get my fumes down now. :P
The Erin’s nailed it!! Thanks for all of the research that goes into each and every podcast and for sharing all of this critical information with the public - all while raising public health awareness in a fun, enjoyable, laughable, cringe-worthy, cry worthy, but mostly simply relatable manner!! Please keep this up!! VERY well done.
This podcast is so fascinating even though it makes me soooo anxious. I especially appreciate how the hosts cite their sources.

5/5

I seriously love this podcast so much, binged all of the episodes on the beach in Mexico for vacation. GIVE US MERCH!!!
Love to sit with my glass of wine and enjoy learning something about a new disease! Incredibly relatable and very informative. Keep up the great work, I can’t wait for your next episode. 🙂👍🏼
I love this podcast so much. These women are my heroes. It’s informative and well researched and, at times, super cute (lookin at you little teebs!). I find this topic fascinating but since I’m not science minded they make it very accessible for people like me. Thanks for all your hard work, Erins!
These women are so gloriously nerdy and entertaining. I LOVE listening and learning something new each week. This podcast is the perfect mix of informational while also entertaining. It is like getting the information of a full blown documentary while getting to watch your favorite actors. I have been fascinated each episode and have told many people about this podcast. I am so impressed with the work they do together and their accomplishments as individuals.
Love this podcast. The two Erins have great chemistry. I love the structure of the podcast as well. Jam packed with information within a relatively short amount of time. Can’t wait for the next episodes.
This podcast is so good! These ladies not only teach you about various pathogens but they make it super interesting and fun! Can’t stop telling my friends about it.
So sorry to start with a “groaner” title but it’s very accurate. I so enjoy how these woman geek out, gross out, and amaze each other and their listeners. And the Quarentini’s - I’m truly a fan and am happy this podcast is Exactly Right
Started listening after Georgia have a shout out on MFM, and I’m obsessed. The Erin’s are both intelligent and hilarious, and each episode is so informative! Been sharing this podcast with all my friends, so far everyone loves it just as much as I do.
Smart, funny, interesting enough to revisit. I love both women. Sometimes gross but they prep you for it. I have learned a lot about so much biology, history, culture, and medicine!
This podcast is absolutely fascinating! I love learning the history and biology of these diseases that I’ve heard of 1,000 times but. Ever really understood.
I really enjoyed this podcast... learning about various diseases, the history and biology about them... but then it got political. That’s when I got disinterested. I was looking for a podcast that wasn’t politically charged, because so many are, but this unfortunately was not one of them.
This podcast is great. If you’re at all interested in diseases (which I very much am), this is the one to listen to. They don’t skirt around the horrific symptoms or the death tolls, they tell everything like it is - something many podcasts seem to not want to do given the heavy content. It is packed full of information by two interesting Erins, who will flat out say when they are making an educated guess, but don’t know for sure. Podcast of my dreams! Only complaint is that there’s not more to listen to yet 😜
This podcast makes me want to travel back in time and take more STEM courses. Erin & Erin present the information with clarity and humor, and are always engaging. Their passion in the subject is contagious. ;-)
So my name is Erin too and I’m now wondering if there’s something about the name Erin that leads to the kind of morbid interest in science and the miracle of the human body and natural world (holy run on sentence). Also...You guys have totally galvanized me to go back to school to be a PhD. So thanks in advance for inspiring my crushing student loan debt!
It’s like they’re trying to sound cute all the time and laugh at everything and it’s very forced/fake. Nothing they laugh at is even funny. It’s a bit cringy. Sometimes I have to stop the episode 10 minutes in. But they do give good information and when they’re not trying to be cute/funny, it’s really interesting.
Really enjoying the podcast- all the gory medical details and the progression of the diseases. But what happened to the MRSA case study that opened the episode? Did the guy die? Did I miss it? Loved the inclusion of a case study, but especially would like to know the outcome.
I really enjoyed the first season and would give that season 5 stars but this second season has advertisements sprinkled throughout and it’s annoying. Please don’t put them in the middle of the show if you have to advertise. Do it at the start or the beginning.
I listen to podcast all day long at my job and this is my FAVORITE! My only “complaint” is that there isn’t a new episode every day. I’m always so excited when my phone notification tells me a new one is available. Erin and Erin are hilarious and engaging and always find the perfect balance between grossing me out and teaching me new information. Love it!

5/5

So informative AND entertaining! Love it :)
These two gals know exactly what they’re talking about and it shows. A magnificent look at an overlooked part of our human history made understandable to those of us who couldn’t get into Harvard. Not only is this podcast well organized, well researched and fun to listen to, it also comes with free drink recipes. Bless Exactly Right for picking these two up otherwise I could have missed them entirely.
The contest for this podcast and the hosts are quite knowledgeable. However I feel like I’m listening to people talking with fast forward on. Please speak more slowly and don’t rush.
I love this podcast soo much!!
I’m a new listener, but I am HOOKED! The amount of knowledge and research these ladies bring to the podcast is amazing! New favorite podcast! Thank you ladies, and keep it up!
A new favorite
Knowledgeable, terrifying, hilarious — keep up the great work!
I adore this podcast, but the volume/mics/mix that these girls employ turns out a quiet podcast which is difficult to listen to in the car or even on headphones unless they are jacked up. I am hoping that their partnership with Exactly Right will help out with their recording process (Steven!) Definitely a wonderful listen if you have a quiet spot. One woman delves into the disease progression and biology and the other contributes the history of the disease, a winning combination!
I am an academic in the social sciences, but the Erins make me want to learn more biology! I love how they geek out over these topics and crack each other up.
I’m really interested in symptoms of of y’know. And the Erin’s do a great job of doing that. They also cover the history really well to.
I love how this podcast describes the history behind whichever disease is the topic of the episode. They do a really good job of describing what it’s like to suffer from the illness and how it’s treated in the modern day. I hate that it gives me new horrifying details of diseases that might kill me (I mean I’m vaccinated against most of them, but one’s imagination does like to run away).
Love it guys, keep the podcasts coming!❤️
When they are not giggling and making tween remarks, they are providing great information. I cannot continue to listen to the nervous cackles. I was really hoping it would get better, it doesn't!! Maybe you could get someone else to broadcast ?? It's like listening to two 12 yr olds discuss class. Great idea, poor execution.
Found this podcast through MFM’s new Exactly Right network and I’m in love! Erin and Erin are funny, interesting and so happy to talk about this subject. Each episode is throughly researched, they give all of their books/papers read at the end if you want to read up in your own. I am learning a lot about an intriguing subject and it’s not as gross as one might think. Fully recommend if you have any interest in the subject of diseases!
Started listening to this because of MFM and its so great! I'm a bio major so hearing all the science behind these diseases is great and so interesting. The Erins make it very understandable
I love listening to these intelligent funny women educate me about terrifying things in the most entertaining way because then I get to terrify everyone around me when I repeat the story.
Not only superninformative, but funny and relatable. The Erin’s is an amazing job, love it!
Really enjoyed, great for medical minds that like a touch of the macabre.
You gals are the best! I am a student of history. I love it! The only other thing that I love as much is infectious disease. So, combine the two and I am pretty much in almost heaven! 🤪 keep up the great work and I gave you 5 Stars!

The HIV/AIDS episodes were an emotionally wrenching mix of science and humanism. It gives me hope for the world to know that these two young scientists are in the field.
In my Chandler voice “Could this podcast BE anymore interesting?” These ladies are so intelligent and funny. They make infectious disease interesting and fun! I love that they are both doctors but they talk like normal people. Thanks for creating this podcast Erin’s! You both rock!
The Erins are a fabulous duo and have made some great storytelling come out of scientific curiosity. I just adore it! Also, the drinks are delish ;)
I’ve only ever wanted to talk about awful diseases and gruesome ways to die, but my friends really don’t like listening to my “horrifying” fun facts. I’m so glad I found this podcast ‘cause the Erins are my new friend group! Emily
Love this podcast! The Erin’s are super knowledgeable yet break this info down in a way us lay people can get it.
This is my favorite podcast, hands-down. Erin and Erin take a topic that could easily scare you out of your mind or could devolve into a boring science breakdown, and make it extremely interesting. Also, a major plus for me, they have great podcast voices not like some people who are difficult to listen to. I love their quarantinis!!
