#189 – COVID Part 1: Current state of affairs, Omicron, and a search for the end game
“Where’s the humility? People are hungry for honesty right now.” —Marty Makary
#169 – Katherine Eban: COVID-19 Lab Leak: Examining all sides of the debate and discussing barriers to a full investigation
“There is no smoking gun per se. What there is is smoke coming out of a lot of windows. … There is enough smoke coming out of enough windows that we cannot take the lab leak hypothesis off the table, and so for me, the most credible people on this, they’re not saying it was a lab leak. What they’re saying is, ‘Why can’t we have a full investigation?’” —Katherine Eban
#160 – Paul Offit, M.D.: The latest on COVID-19 vaccines and their safety, herd immunity, and viral variants
“If you ask me the question, ‘What do I fear most about this whole pandemic?’ it’s actually not the variants. … It’s that there would be a significant percentage of the population that is going to choose not to vaccinate so much so that we can’t get to that 80+% of population immunity we need to slow this virus.” —Paul Offit
