    Esteem Change (01/21/21)

    We discuss the inauguration of Joe Biden, dismal recent updates to his healthcare agenda that were copied direct from AHIP, and one writer's bad argument that under Biden the left should cool it on Medicare for All.

    UNLOCKED - Everybody Loves School Reopenings w/ Abby Cartus and Justin Feldman

    UNLOCKED - Everybody Loves School Reopenings w/ Abby Cartus and Justin Feldman

    With schools set to resume after the holiday break and local officials cracking down on teachers unions across the US, we're unlocking one of our recent favorites: an in-depth discussion on what the school reopening debate has gotten miserably wrong. If you like this episode, support us if you can at https://www.patreon.com/deathpanelpod.

    The Panel is joined by epidemiologists Abby Cartus and Justin Feldman to discuss why politicians have almost universally pushed to keep schools open during the pandemic, how little we actually know about the potential impact of these decisions, and just how bad the "data" is that self-styled experts like Emily Oster hang their arguments on.

    Abby Cartus is a PhD in perinatal epidemiology.

    Justin Feldman is an epidemiologist of social inequality and state violence and a Health & Human Rights Fellow at the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard. You can follow him on Twitter @jfeldman_epi

    (Teaser)

    How did the idea of lockdowns to control the pandemic completely disappear from American political discourse? When people say lockdowns don't work, what do they mean exactly? We get to the bottom of it, and the Brookings Institution-supported paper we think might be patient zero.

Best healthcare policy podcast!

I got into listening to death panel from a bonus episode of Beep Beep Lettuce that Bea guested on. I started with listening to the excellent Medicare for All week.

The episodes are amazing and very informative and cover the political struggles around healthcare justice, economic inequality and policy proposals in great detail. Plus they have a lot of excellent guests on their show providing perspectives that are often overlooked when discussing these issues.

Also the panel are very knowledgeable and are the kindest people - I’ve signed up to their patreon and joined the discord and they are very welcoming as are the whole community, it’s a great place to be.

Thank you to Bea, Artie, Phil and Vince! You’re all amazing!

One of my favourites

Without a doubt the best US healthcare policy podcasts, and one of the best (US/UK) politics podcasts out there. Funny, informative, no-nonsense analysis and news. Couldn’t recommend it more to anyone interested in politics, health, or critical theory which should be... uh..... everyone
