    introducing EPIDEMIC — a new podcast with Dr. Celine Gounder and Ron Klain

    EPIDEMIC is a new, weekly podcast on the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19). Hear from some of the world’s leading infectious disease and public health experts. We’ll help you understand the latest science, the bigger context, and bring you diverse angles—from history and anthropology to politics and economics—depth and texture you won’t get elsewhere.
    Hosted by Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease specialist and epidemiologist who has worked on tuberculosis and HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, and was an Ebola worker during the West African epidemic. And co-hosted by Ron Klain, the U.S. Ebola czar from 2014 to 2015.
    As we transition from regional epidemics to a full-on pandemic, we’re likely to see coronavirus spread here in the U.S. There are things we can do to prepare, to care for ourselves, our families, and our communities.
    Tweet your questions to @celinegounder and @ronaldklain. We’ll answer a couple on the show each week.

Guests: Kayla Hicks, Director of African-American & Community Outreach for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV); Reverend Jeffrey Brown, Baptist minister and President of Rebuilding Every Community Around Peace (RECAP); Anthony Smith, Executive Director of Cities United; and AU Hogan, Associate Director and Chief of Streets for Life Camp.

Really thoughtful and through

I’m working through season 3 now, and it’s incredibly thoughtful. I love the deep look at a really complicated issue as opposed to our usual knee-jerk reactions that either the government is evil trying to take away guns or that the people who own them are evil. Digging deeply into the issues makes it much easier to imagine solutions. Thanks, Celine!

This is the Gun Debate Primer

As others have mentioned, this podcast gives a point of view from every side of the gun debate. From the POV of the rural hunter, to the inner city police, to the trauma unit, to the mental health expert, to the gun shop owner, to the military, the podcast gives layers upon layers of information and true human stories. It tells how guns can raise some person’s self esteem and be a key identification of their life and culture. It tells about the terror of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It tells of those who profit and only care about profit. It tells about those who love the sport and want to only educate about the sport. It dives into suicide and suicide prevention. This is an essential American podcast. Please listen to it.
