    Trillion Dollar Shot, Episode 2: Bank Breakers

    Trillion Dollar Shot, Episode 2: Bank Breakers

    As demand for the new class of GLP-1 weight-loss drugs skyrockets, one thing has stood in the way of many people trying to access them: cost. With a price tag around $1,000 a month for U.S. patients and many insurance companies refusing to cover these drugs for weight loss, patients are often turning to alternatives.



    In episode two of “Trillion Dollar Shot,” we look at the roadblocks to making these drugs more affordable, concerns that their high cost will negatively impact U.S. insurance systems, and the sometimes risk-laden options people are turning to in desperation.

Good podcast but

I listen to these pretty religiously. However theres reporter with a bad accent/nasally and make it unable to finish.

Quick and to the point

I love this show, but hate the news, yet this show is news with good highlights and minimal bias. The reporters, Kate and Ryan are one of my favorite. I recommend for anyone that wants a quick glimpse of important news without stupidity and fluff. I also like that sometimes they present fun topics like the taco Tuesday story, that was good. Overall I love it.

Forever War

This is the first time I feel that The Journal is not objective and instead takes a side. Your ending stating that a cease fire is the only way to attain peace in the Middle East does not take into account that ending the war now would leave Hamas in power to continue to pursue its clear goal to destroy the State of Israel. I am not sure how you can miss that logic
