Despite some uptick in cases and hospitalizations, COVID is disrupting life less this winter compared to winters past. Why, and what does that mean as we enter 2023? Andy speaks with epidemiologist and ITB favorite Katelyn Jetelina, who offers an hypothesis for why new mutations are not wreaking havoc like Omicron did last year. She also breaks down the added dangers of flu and RSV and predicts the worldwide implications if China relaxes its zero COVID policies. As an added bonus, today’s episode includes an important conversation from the "Voices From the Frontlines" series, featuring Donnie Nelson and Dr. Nona Yunzhu Mei discussing their work in palliative care and how their holistic approach guided them through the pandemic.

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof spent more than a week in Ukraine touring towns recently abandoned by Russian forces and speaking with Ukrainians consumed with grief and trauma. He saw torture chambers, interviewed women who were beaten and raped by Russian soldiers, and learned of Ukrainian kids trafficked to Russia to be put up for adoption. Nick tells Andy that these crimes against humanity should remind us of the stakes as the war continues, and offers ways to help this holiday season. Keep up with Andy on Post and Twitter @ASlavitt.

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.

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. Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt.

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.

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?

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.

With a potentially split legislature on the horizon, passing climate policy could become a lot more difficult. We revisit a recent show on one piece of policy President Biden was able to get passed: the Inflation Reduction Act. Andy speaks with public policy expert Leah Stokes, who helped craft The IRA’s climate provisions. She explains how the law will transition the economy from fossil fuels to clean energy and get us closer to cutting pollution in half. NASA climatologist Gavin Schmidt tells Andy what actions are needed to prevent further global warming, and how the law could achieve that.  Note: This interview was recorded before the Inflation Reduction Act was passed.

MAGA Republicans like Marjorie Taylor Greene will hold major influence in the House if the GOP takes back the majority in the midterms. What impact will that have on the priorities set by Congress and the way our government functions? Andy speaks with journalist Robert Draper, whose new book, “Weapons of Mass Delusion,” details how a new breed of Republicans have taken the politics of hysteria to even greater extremes. He forecasts a potential future where Greene becomes House speaker, an impeachment inquiry gets announced on Biden, and a government shutdown is used as leverage to pass conservative priorities supported by the MAGA base.

Words matter. Coming from the highest office, they have the power to bring the nation together or tear it apart. Andy speaks with Barack Obama’s chief speechwriter Cody Keenan about some of the most high-stakes speeches Obama gave during his presidency, from the aftermath of a white supremacist shooting to the fate of marriage equality, and why his message of redemption resonated so strongly with the American people. Cody also reacts to the pendulum swing that brought us Trump’s hateful language and Biden’s propensity for unscripted remarks. Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt.

Saudi Arabia’s push for OPEC+ to cut oil production is fueling Russia's coffers in its war in Ukraine. Andy talks to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s right hand man, Derek Chollet, about the geopolitical reasons behind that decision and the effect it will have abroad and at home. He explains the delicate diplomacy taking place between America and Saudi Arabia and why Europe’s split from Russian energy will ultimately benefit global democracy.

Very annoying that Nancy Mace ads cut in - would never vote for anyone that breaks in unwanted

Cubesats unfolding in orbit can provide different opportunities for customers https://dragonflyaerospace.com/ Many of the satellites are not intended for one need, but several or can adapt to the requests of a new client, remaining in orbit.

Ive listened to this a couple of times, and the Hate Crime this, Hate Crime that, if only they investigated Hate Crimes, Prof Bell, at one point i figured Christopher Walken would burst in with a juxtaposition of '''I GOTTA HAVE MORE HATE CRIME!" Perhaps we should drop those pesky Presumptions of Innocence and default all crines to allegedly Hateful Crimes. The only problems there, Of course, is thatn an alleged Hate Crime still sounds like there's a possibility, even within those circumstances of whuch every kast drop of doubt has been slighted so carefully, at a cost of so much shamful indignity that for the first time you feel that you can finnally rest as the level of assurati every last infinitesimal perception of your soulless humanity

I will say long COVID can be way more than a couple months. Perhaps because I had COVID in February 2020 and the long COVID showed up in early May. Fatigue, brain fog breathing issues and in the last 5 months Asthma and High Blood Pressure (none of which I had before COVID). Long COVID is going to be a huge problem in the future. I would love to hear a podcast on these issues. And I feel like I am one of the lucky ones.

Very awko-taco with the second half. I couldn’t tell if the analytics lady was being criticized or not, and Andy trying to play catch-up with compliments towards the end of the segment only furthered my suspicion. Maybe it was weirdly received on both sides? I don’t know. But it felt like I was sitting in on someone’s work evaluation and the feedback made me feel just uncomfortable lol. Very weird.

All great things and will be thrilled if they come to pass. CVS has wonderful concepts yet they do not accept Tricare - large, deserving segment of the population left out.

Andy, Back in October I told my wife Debbie, "If Biden wins, Andy will be heading back to DC, just watch!" "Are you serious?" she asked. "100%" I said. I'm so glad I was right, let me know if I can help in any way from my bubble in Minnesota. Love you man!😎

Hi there. Thank you for this episode. I am fully dependent on TPN (IV nutrition) and have a compromised immune system. I fully understand the triggers & fear of contracting this virus. I’m absolutely strict about how my family deals with packages, going out & maintaining social distancing. No one, other than my immediate family, has entered my home since mid-March. Not even my nurse. It’s exhausting & sad. Thanks again for keeping us informed. Stay safe, y’all!

The discussion about when things open up, one thing that was missed is the people at home following carefully to what is going on. I personally won't eat meat ever again but another reason is the cost to both animals and humans to process that meat. Humans working in those plants are being treated worse than the animals. I can't be alone so I fully expect people will start eating less meat or not at all. There is a yuck factor too when imagining how these people are able to pass this virus around so easily, all while chopping pieces of pigs into chops. Most people who imagine that and also prepare food for their children may finally get around to researching other sources of protein which are actually much cheaper for the consumer then meat products.
