A Tale of Two Masks Studies
Last week, we featured two prominent scientists on the topic of COVID-19. Two studies were mentioned: the Duke mask study, examining the efficacy of different kinds of masks in a physics laboratory, and the recently-release Danish mask study (DANMASK) – the largest controlled study of masks since the beginning of the pandemic.
This week, I am joined by lead researchers on each study – Dr. Eric Westman of Duke University, and Dr. Henning Bundgaard of the University of Copenhagen.
Creon Levit and Dr. Nick Cozzi also return to offer their commentary.

Governor Jerry Brown addresses existential threats in an era of political mistrust
In 1974, I was living at Wilbur Hot Springs and I heard about a man, my age, named Jerry Brown, who was a candidate for governor of California. I learned that his family had lived “down the road a piece” from Wilbur since 1857.
I did some research and discovered that, more than any other politician, Jerry Brown represented my social and economic views.
Soon after, for the first time in my life, I attended a political fundraiser, met the candidate, Jerry Brown, and donated $500 (present value $2,639), a great deal of money for me. I have been a fan of his ever since. Later that year he was elected to his first of four terms as Governor of California. I opine that Jerry Brown may be the only honest politician in America.
He tells the truth.
This year, Jerry Brown retired after his second 8-year term as Governor of California. He moved back to the family farm in Colusa County, and once again we are neighbors.
This past New Year's Eve Jerry and his wife Anne spent the evening with Jolee and myself at Wilbur. It is because of these connections that I have the privilege of interviewing my neighbor, Governor Brown, on Mind Body Health & Politics, about his thoughts on the increasingly dangerous world, and how to address the dual threats of climate change and nuclear proliferation.
