    Ep. 7: Your Date With Omicron, "Fringe" Scientists, Myocarditis, COVID & College Kids

    Ep. 7: Your Date With Omicron, "Fringe" Scientists, Myocarditis, COVID & College Kids

    Many questions addressed on this last episode of 2021!
    Should people who talk about COVID policy actually see COVID patients, and are doctors biased by their daily practice experience?
    How should holiday meals "safely" occur, and how can we understand risk and risk reduction?
    Are Vinay and Zubin wrong about the response around college students and COVID?
    Did Francis Collins try to discredit "fringe epidemiologist" Jay Bhattacharya and his colleagues instead of promoting dialog?
    Why is Dr. Z so sick of talking about COVID?
    Is Omicron milder than prior strains?
    Is myocarditis from vaccines in young men more common than myocarditis from natural COVID infection?

    Ep. 6: Rogan/McCullough, Boosters & Omicron, Myocarditis Trial Data, Virtue Signaling

    This week we dive into Dr. Z's personal booster decision, do vaccines reduce transmission in setting of variants like Omicron, Joe Rogan’s interview with Dr. Peter McCullough , the hypocrisy of physicians who demand masks and distancing and then do the opposite themselves, medical students speaking out against distance learning, new myocarditis trial data with implications for Moderna and spacing vaccines in general, meditation stuff, the problem with virtue signaling, the number needed to boot with vaccine passports to prevent 1 transmission, and MUCH MORE.

    Ep. 5: Stifling Physician Voices, Politicized Journalism, German Kids Study, Policy Solutions

    Ep. 5: Stifling Physician Voices, Politicized Journalism, German Kids Study, Policy Solutions

    In this episode we dive into some emails Dr. Z received about hospital COVID policies and medical education (and how our leaders are screwing up), the problem with mandates in healthcare, and strongly negative feedback for us from a critical care nurse on the front lines about our vaccine messaging.

    In the news, we react to NPR’s piece saying Trump voters more likely to die of COVID, what is the nature of “misinformation” on both sides of the political spectrum, the challenges of quantitative journalism, the German study on kids and COVID risk, Pfizer omicron booster press release and surrogate endpoints, and Vinay’s policy proposals to make the COVID mess better.
