From Andy: This was just about the most fun I've ever had in a conversation about some seriously scientific and technical stuff - the human biome and gut. Ara and Raja were so good at taking their vast knowledge and expertise, boiling it down to the things that are most important, and explaining it in a way that a normal layperson can understand. The developments we're making in the research of the microbiome and gut are so exciting and cutting edge - this is a conversation that you've got to take the time to check out! 

Enjoy!
