    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.

    Frailstate (01/07/21)

    We discuss the temporary occupation of Congress, the increasing rationing of healthcare during the pandemic, and a case study of how one US state has been willfully misinterpreting its own coronavirus case data.

    (Teaser)

    We discuss the push among the pundit class to focus on administering one vaccine dose rather than two, motivated by the slow vaccine rollout and the new UK variant. Then we take a look at one modest proposal to let 'wealthy influencers' skip the line to get vaccinated first.

Necessary, enlightening, and a great time

The whole crew has such an amazing insight onto our society and it has been a real learning experience for me. I could not recommend it more. The analysis, the time they take, the arguments are all so well thought-out.

Favorite Political Pod

I am a reformed Pod Save America listener turned Death Panel patron. I was looking for something smart, funny, and genuine and this is it. I highly recommend this pod to any ‘progressive liberal’ who is feeling disillusioned with the Dems and wants a more left perspective from a group of thoughtful, empathetic folks.

Digging deeper than other art-adjacent pods

Death Panel is great. Guests from orgs like Survived and Punished and the Modern Money Network join kind, intelligent hosts to do hi-res analysis of current events and social issues from a leftist perspective. Truly humanist and truly critical of systems of power and capital
