In this special Thanksgiving airing of the Outbreak News This Week Radio Show, I feature four interviews on four very common parasitic nematodes, or roundworms– the giant intestinal roundworm–Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura or whipworm, the hookworms and Enterobius vermicularis, or the pinworm.

These are recordings from interviews I’ve had with parasitologist and author, Rosemary Drisdelle.
