    What Zero-COVID Protests Mean for China and the World

    What Zero-COVID Protests Mean for China and the World

    The widespread protests against the Chinese government are the most extensive since Tiananmen Square in 1989. The demonstrations are against both the severe zero-COVID policies and Xi Jinping’s rule. But the consequences of protesting in China are harsh. Andy speaks with two China experts, Xiao Qiang at the University of California Berkeley and Michael Beckley at Tufts University, about whether COVID rules will loosen, why these protests could mark the start of an even more authoritarian era, and what a coming crackdown on the Chinese people might look like.

    Free Vaccines For All Are Ending. What’s Next? (with CVS Health’s Tom Moriarty)

    Free Vaccines For All Are Ending. What’s Next? (with CVS Health’s Tom Moriarty)

    With the next round of COVID-19 funding stalled in Congress, Americans face a future where vaccines and tests will no longer be free for everyone. Andy speaks with CVS Health’s Executive Vice President Tom Moriarty, who says cutting off funding for basic preventative measures along with new advances like a nasal vaccine is a bad decision both for public health and national security. Tom gives us an update on who’s getting the updated booster, along with the flu shot, and predicts how much sickness we’ll see this winter.

    Showing Up Every Day of the Year (with Shannon Watts)

    Showing Up Every Day of the Year (with Shannon Watts)

    The five people killed in Colorado Springs this month join 18,000 other Americans who died of gun homicides this year. Stephanie Wittels Wachs sits in for Andy to process the news with Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Shannon shares her experience hearing about the shooting as the mother of a nonbinary young adult living in Colorado, and takes stock of what her organization has accomplished since forming in the wake of Sandy Hook. Amid the heartache, this conversation is full of optimism and a sense of joy that grassroots activism is squashing the NRA’s influence and turning the tide on gun safety in America.

    Presenting Audio Reality : Being GOLDEN

    Presenting Audio Reality : Being GOLDEN

    The producers of this series would like to share with you another series they know you’ll love. BEING is reality TV for your ears, an innovative new audio format like no other podcast you've ever heard. This season, it’s BEING Golden -- a look inside the lives of four 60+ seniors living in LA.

    Meet Buzz, a 71-year-old former sales and marketing executive who drastically uprooted his life by moving out west to Los Angeles to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming an actor -- even if it means taking a job as a rideshare driver to make ends meet, and despite objections from his adult kids. And meet Gloria, a 71-year-old retiree with a past as spicy as her personality. As she looks back on her dating history, is it time to finally open a new chapter and look for love (or just a good time) by diving into the dating app scene?

    To hear more of BEING Golden, head to https://link.chtbl.com/BEING

    The Doctor Can't See You Now (with Dr. Christine Sinsky)

    Americans are having a hard time getting in to see a doctor, and burnout among heathcare workers is a leading reason why. The stressors of the Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated a burnout crisis among physicians and nurses. But even before the pandemic, burnout was already a rampant problem for physicians and other health workers. Dr. Bob Wachter sits in for Andy and talks with AMA vice president and burnout expert Christine Sinsky about the root causes of burnout and what it will mean for all of us.

Best news briefing around

No drama, great experts and commentary. Thank you Andy and Lemonada!

RMB_SF ,

Need for greater focus?

Love Andy as an interviewer, and his COVID podcasts were essential listening. I understand the need to broaden out, as the “new news” on COVID becomes less frequent. But it feels as though the show now lacks any kind of organizing philosophy or premise - just “Andy interviews someone interesting in an interesting topic.” Which isn’t bad but doesn’t distinguish it from many other great podcasts. Maybe consider focusing on health issues? That is certainly a very rich area to mine in itself!

JCASEA ,

Andy = Excellent Interviewer

Essential information. Andy is organized, prepared, and chooses relevant topics for today. thanks!
