Interesting Podcast about Ineffectual Policies Surrounding COVID-19

Here is a recent and interesting episode of a podcast, featuring two well-known mainstream physicians, about the ineffectual policies pursued under the name of “public health measures” for controlling COVID-19. In it, they talk about issues ranging from recent clinical trials which demonstrate the relative ineffectiveness of face masks in preventing viral transmission, the incredibly irrational policies surround schools, daycare and universities, the potentially nasty political and other violent blowbacks from vaccine mandates, the serious lack of good data to support boosters, risk of second-dose myocarditis in teenage boys and young men, liberal media overreaction to Ivermectin and much more.

What makes this podcast even more interesting is that both have respectable mainstream medical and academic careers in very blue cities in blue states. It says a lot when even people living in such parts of the country clearly have had enough of this ‘liberal’ nonsense. One of them even writes articles for very mainstream medical publications and liberal puff pieces such the Atlantic. Here is a list of more articles by him in MSM and non-specialist journals and outlets. So you see.. even otherwise liberal people in the medical field have now reached the point where they are speaking up about this nonsense. You might also have recently seen many previously mainstream narrative supporting journalists trying to hastily distance themselves from the ongoing slow-motion train wreck. The next few months look interesting..

What do you think? Comments?

    I listened to this podcast in full. My impression is this is a couple of Twitter doctors. They are real doctors who do real research and treat patients, but they spend (waste) way too much time in Twitter arguments. They may think that being active on Twitter is way to communicate the science to ordinary people, but real science does not fit into 280 characters. Twitter is full of trolls and disinformation operation.

    Did you ever see what he has done in his medical and academic career? You should.. because it gives you a very good idea about his familiarity with statistics and clinical trials. Then again you are gullible enough to believe “Russia” and “Putin” were responsible for Trump winning in 2016.

    They also spent a lot of time talking about the public health policy and messaging, which are fields in which they are not experts. They are both liberal and I suspect they have never spent much time watching or listening to the information sources of most people refusing the vaccine. They criticized the polarization of the response to the pandemic but they don’t seem to have any idea the garbage being spewed on FOX, NewsMax, OAN, InfoWars, ect, about vaccines. They really think millions of people in red areas of the country are refusing the vaccine because some liberal on Twitter sneered at them for not being vaccinated?

    It is a disgrace the right wing media elites, most of which are fully vaccinated, continue to spew anti-vaccine propaganda in order to prolong the worst phase of the pandemic. I mean come on, it was Trump who championed the development of the vaccines. Just give Trump credit for getting the vaccines developed and encourage everyone to take the Trump vaccine. Instead they are discouraging vaccinations and encouraging people to go get sick, with some of them ending up in the hospital and dying to own the Libs.

    I know these doctors are trying to do science communications, but they really are not doing a good job of it.

    Yahoo cut off my feed of heartwarming news in favor of this :

    Funded by grants from NIH, NIAID and DARPA. Ironic!

    Yahoo fed me a humdinger of heartwarming news today: “Both of these books include pedophilia,” Langton told the board. “Sex between men and boys … One book describes a fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male. The other book has detailed illustrations of a man having sex with a boy…”

    Yep.. nice to see that the woke liberal west is doing such a good job shooting itself in the head.
