The Latest Science of Fighting COVID-19 (with Dr. Scott Gottlieb)
In perhaps the most essential episode of the series, Andy gets a real sense of where we are now in the scientific response to COVID-19 with Dr. Scott Gottlieb, FDA Commissioner under President Trump. In this riveting conversation, they cover the science, the politics, and the policies that got us here and will lead us out. They also discuss the importance of their bipartisanship work together and Scott's forthcoming book, Uncontrolled Spread.
