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.

The first few minutes of each episode is a bit weird as each host introduces themselves and describes current weather conditions, but it's quirks like that which make the show so relatable even if much of the content goes over my head. The clinical update they do ever Saturday is especially interesting to get a sense of what the safety tradeoffs look like for different populations.

Valuable Covid-19 Info

Thank you for your continuing episodes about Covid-19 and the still-emerging scientific data. You’ve been the best resource I’ve found for timely updates and frank discussions about what we know and still don’t know, and I’ve enjoyed hearing everyone’s thoughts on new research as so many papers have been released “into the wild”.

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.
