  • The only Covid-19 podcast I listen to now

    I've listened to a lot of podcasts about Covid-19, but I've learned the most from This Week in Virology. In the last few months they've pivoted away from 100% coverage of Covid-19 news, but their discussion of the latest scientific research is fascinating and free of a lot of the culture war bias found elsewhere. more

  • real info

    TWIV has been a voice of reason amid the miasma of balderdash for the past couple of years -- I was better informed far in advance about what to expect from the vaccines (i.e., not to expect long-term sterilizing immunity) than I ever have been by public health bigwigs. I'll be forever grateful to TWIV for having made it abundantly clear what was known and not known at any given time during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Thank you for keeping my blood pressure under control.

  • Fear porn

    If you can navigate the fear porn, it’s a great podcast. I can’t believe the number of times they’ve said “over 800 kids have died”… there have, at the time of writing, less than 20 kids (aged 0-19) who have died with no comorbidity. Quit stressing people out and just report the facts.
