053 - A Roach Motel For The Malaria Parasite; and Scientists Have Discovered a New Virus That's Probably In You Right Now

In this week's episode of the Beta Sandwich Science Podcast we discuss how scientists have found a way to trap the Malaria parasite in the red blood cell it's infected so that it can't infect other cells.  Also, we talk about how scientists at SDSU have found a virus previously unknown to science (crAssphage) that happily resides in 75% of all people's guts.
