    Is COVID Misinformation Killing People? (with Facebook’s Nick Clegg) (EXTENDED CUT)

    Is COVID Misinformation Killing People? (with Facebook’s Nick Clegg) (EXTENDED CUT)

    Andy talks with Nick Clegg, Facebook's Vice President of Global Affairs, about one of the most important issues out there: Facebook, social media, COVID-19 and misinformation. After President Biden said Facebook is "killing people" with COVID misinformation, Andy and Nick discuss what Facebook says its obligation is with regard to misinformation, what they're doing to combat it, and whether it’s enough. In this extended cut from July, they also discuss Nick’s transition from politics to tech, the lessons Facebook learned from the 2016 election, and COVID in the UK.

    A Look at COVID from Conservative America (with Hugh Hewitt)

    A Look at COVID from Conservative America (with Hugh Hewitt)

    Andy and conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, who is very much pro-vaccine and anti-federal vaccine mandate, merge echo chambers and discuss where conservatives are at this moment with the pandemic. They get into reasons why an estimated 40% of conservative adults aren't vaccinated, what works and what doesn't when it comes to persuading unvaccinated people, and have an in-depth exchange about mandates. This is an increasingly rare but badly needed conversation, one that is spirited and civil between people who disagree. Plus, Ryan Panchadsaram joins Andy at the beginning of the show to weigh in on the Glasgow Climate Pact.

    What’s the COVID Risk Right Now? (with Bob Wachter)

    What’s the COVID Risk Right Now? (with Bob Wachter)

    Have we reached the so-called "new normal" people keep talking about? And if so, what does that mean for you? Andy reunites with former guest host Dr. Bob Wachter who has started to let his guard down in terms of risk tolerance. They discuss why Bob feels like the time is right for that, how to think about the things that can scare us back into a more vigilant state, and Bob's thoughts for what COVID looks like long-term. This is a nuanced conversation on a complex topic that will help you navigate this uncertain time. Plus, Andy’s mom joins at the start to offer up some show ideas.

    How Facebook Ruined Everything (with Kara Swisher)

    Andy calls up Kara Swisher, whom Newsweek once called Silicon Valley's "most powerful tech journalist," to discuss the myriad issues surrounding companies like Facebook, Twitter, and even Donald Trump's new social media platform Truth Social. They get into the Facebook Papers, if government regulation is coming, and where she sees Big Tech heading in the near future. Plus, Andy tells a story he's never told before about interactions with Facebook while he was in the White House.

Go to resource

I have looked forward to Mondays and Wednesdays during the pandemic as new episodes come out. This has been one of my go to resources to stay informed. I so appreciate Andy and all that he has done for our country.

PatonC ,

Great information

I have learned SO MUCH from this podcast and all your fantastic guests. I loved the episode with Hugh. I probably align with him more than Andy, but I love listening and learning and appreciate that you try to keep politics out of your information.

MECA7 ,

Enlightening

Although I disagree with Hugh about many things (among them that their "freedom" supersedes my right to be protected from illness and even death), I was able to understand some conservatives' reasoning about the vaccine mandates and be less angry about their hesitation to get vaccinated. We do need to hear each other out and I appreciate your giving us this opportunity
