In the news this week we’ve been reminded that so-called “superbugs” are going to kill millions of us, so I thought we should talk once more with infectious disease physician Dr Trent Yarwood.

In this episode we talk about antibiotic-resistant microorganisms, but also some interesting research relating to Alzheimer’s disease, the nature of research journalism, Victoria’s plans to put everyone’s health records in one big database and matters of medical privacy, the human genome project, and even a little xenodocheionology, the lore of hotels and inns.
