Bite Me with Dr. Mike Leahy Premiere

Tuesdays at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT beginning September 8

At the age of 26, Mike Leahy decided to leave the professional world of motor mechanics behind and go back to school. He decided that he wanted to study Environmental Biology and went on to earn a PhD in Virology and Molecular Biology at Oxford University. These days he is interested in two things: traveling and parasites! Join Dr. Mike as he travels to popular tourist destinations to learn more about the lethal parasites that call these places home. Under the watchful eye of a paramedic accompanying the crew, Dr. Mike explores the science behind their secret weapons, allows himself to be exposed, and highlights how travellers can avoid an unwanted close encounter.
