…uh… can you believe this is my reading right now? And it’s only really the latest round of books and none of the journal articles. I feel like I’ve been getting a large part of some advanced degree… the part after all the foundational lessons that help you to understand what’s coming next. And the part that doesn’t actually let me get a piece of paper and a related research job.
I’m having conversations with major honchos at CDC, NIH, Pasteur, etc. that I can’t believe myself.
Right now as the researcher, I’m in charge of ensuring that the science that we have in the show (which is at the molecular level of 7 different diseases!) is correct. And then as the archival researcher, I find footage for each show. Then, to wrap it all up, I’m annotating our scripts to show where I/we got all the information from.
