Last week the team from Monster Talk interviewed parasitologist Barry O’Connor for an upcoming episode of our podcast.
We wanted to speak with him about chupacabra claims involving animals suffering from mange. Our delightful conversation treated mange, mites, lice, scabies and other itchy subjects…and itch I did, throughout the interview. Psychosomatically.
Barry retold the story of the time he and his colleagues talked shop over dinner in public. At one point, they looked around them and discovered they’d cleared out the full restaurant with their talk of bug bites and rashes.
Barry asked, “You must all be itching right now!”Â Blake and Ben seemed fine. But not me.
In fact, I’m itching now just thinking about it all…
What topics disgust or repulse you at the mere thought of them?
