Podcast Recommendation

"The Daily" on Covid-19 and Italy.

Overall, the NYT‘s The Daily has been quite informative on the topic of Covid-19, and so I would recommend the podcast in general.

However, I would especially recommend Tuesday’s edition, “It’s Like a War” which is an interview with an Italian doctor about conditions on the ground in Italy.

A key take-away is the need for us to do what we can to slow the spread of the virus.

    Hey folks, lurked here for years. Not a podcast, but this prof runs a calm rational, fact-based YouTube channel. Been following for a couple months now. Incredibly prescient. Oldschool presentation style.


    Plus he reminds me of Dr. Nefario from Despicable Me.
