    Deplatforming the President

    Deplatforming the President

    This week, in the wake of violent protests at the Capitol, the social media platforms took unprecedented steps to rein in the president.

And how is it that two CEOs came to have so much power over the president’s reach?

    Inside Biden’s COVID Team

    Inside Biden’s COVID Team

    When Joe Biden takes office in two months, the federal government will take on a new stance in its fight to contain the coronavirus. The broad strokes of that strategy have been outlined in debates and on campaign websites, but now the real work begins.

    Two weeks ago, the president-elect appointed a team of 13 advisers to answer some key questions. How can the new government win the trust of the 73 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump? What would a national mask mandate look like? How will the different vaccines be distributed?

    A member of President-elect Biden’s COVID-19 council takes us behind the scenes.

    Guest: Celine Gounder, member of the Joe Biden’s COVID-19 Advisory Board, and host of the American Diagnosis and Epidemic podcasts.

A very good tech podcast

Stumbling across it rather randomly while browsing podcasts on Apple's App, I have been intrigued with this podcast from the first episode I listened to. April and Will really do give a balanced and well researched insight into the tech world and how it affects every day life. Being based in Europe it also gives me a different perspective on relevant questions in our interconnected world. Keep it up guys!
