Eric Feigl-Ding: ‘Almost our entire epidemic could have been prevented’
We kick off this week's show with a look at Attorney General Bill Barr's push to prosecute Democratic elected officials and charge protesters with sedition, and his preemptive defense of meddling in criminal cases for corrupt purposes. This is all getting really bad and scary, but there is a path out.
Then we're joined by epidemiologist Eric Feigl-Ding, a senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists, to talk about where we are in the Covid-19 pandemic, where we could have been, and why it's virtually impossible to expect a vaccine to be widely available anytime soon.
