    Hi Dr. Racaniello,
    I was wondering if there have been any episodes of TWiV that talked about the South American Arenaviruses like Machupo, Junin, Guanarito, and Sabia. These are my viruses of interest that I hope to do research on after I graduate from college, and a TWiV episode on these viruses would be amazing (though I'm not sure there has been anything really interesting happening with research on these viruses as of late, so I'm not sure what you would talk about)
    But I look forward to every episode, regardless of the topic,
    Thanks for your time,
    Erik
