Today on Word of Mouth we're exploring the macro influences of the micro world. First, a conversation with John Timmer about the recently discovered pithovirus which has been sealed in the Siberian permafrost for more than 30 thousand years. Then, a look at a new approach to cleanliness: bacteria-rich body sprays. Plus, Jason DaSilva talks to us about his most recent film about his journey with multiple sclerosis. 

There's more information about each segment from our Saturday show, including any links we mentioned during the broadcast, under the heading 'Related Content'.  Just scan the available selections to find what you're looking for, or email us at wordofmouth@nhpr.org if you have any questions!
