I think this is a very good development. Anything that gets FMT more known by the general public should be greatly beneficial for us and the future of FMT. One of the main problems I've run into is that many people have never heard of FMT before and thus when asked to be a donor react with "I've never heard of this".

I thought it was pretty funny too, and covers some of the struggles and extreme ideas that us desperate people have had over the years.

It was very well done. They even portrayed Tom Brady as a super-donor with type 3 stool, and they're trying to get his poop! This is perfect.

They even used a turkey baster! They're in here with us, listening to me!! Thanks so much for the episode guys!

But if even you can't get access to Tom Brady poop, couldn't you help get a clinical trial going? The money made from this episode alone would probably be enough to fund multiple clinical trials.

To anyone who might question the quality of this: All the knowledge in the world won't save us if we can't get top young athletes to sign up to be donors. So things like this are extremely important and vital to the future of FMT.
