Michael Specter interviewed by Terry Gross (NPR)

If you missed the Fresh Air interview between Terry Gross and Michal Specter, who wrote a story for the New Yorker called "Lyme Wars," here's the link:


Many listeners with Lyme disease were annoyed by this interview and his article as well. You be the judge. Certainly the story has had an impact and raised awareness about Lyme. It has helped trigger more of a debate, which is good news too, in my opinion.

For example he says that at least 36 hours are required before infection can be passed from tick to human.  This is hotly debated by some researchers who claim it may be a much shorter time.

The program is 37 minutes in length.
