    Standards of Care w/ Beans Velocci (08/04/22)

    We talk to Beans Velocci about the early history of medicalized transition in the US, how the earliest clinical guidelines were largely written with physician indemnity in mind, and the harms of the perpetual myth that trans and nonbinary people are a novel phenomenon.

    Beans Velocci is a historian of sex, science, and classification, and an Assistant Professor in History and Sociology of Science and Core Faculty in Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.

    Read Beans' piece, "Standards of Care: Uncertainty and Risk in Harry Benjamin's Transsexual Classifications" in the November 2021 issue of Transgender Studies Quarterly.

    We discuss a new framing in media that everyone has already had covid, including the Wall Street Journal's "Think You've Never Had Covid-19? Think Again" and The Atlantic's "America Is Running Out of ‘COVID Virgins.’" Then we look at what we've learned in recent days about Biden's covid diagnosis and how covid response coordinator Ashish Jha worked to sell it as "a success story."

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!

MissHF ,

Confidence high competence low

They laugh a lot at other peoples understanding but they don’t seem to have much experience of the world outside of US city centres. I could be wrong, maybe they have worked day jobs trying to actually improve the world but if so it doesn’t come across. They’ve read a lot of books I’ll give them that. Very strange podcast.

Garage games ,

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
