Joe Rogan and Sam Harris Both Released New Episodes of Their Popular Podcasts About the Coronavirus Pandemic Today

Two major heavy hitters in the podcast world—Sam Harris and Joe Rogan—released podcasts today that focused on the global coronavirus pandemic.

Joe Rogan’s guest today was infectious diseases expert Dr. Michael Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota.

Dr. Osterholm dispels several myths and misconceptions about the coronavirus, and the podcast is well worth a listen!

Sam Harris interviewed Dr. Nicholas Christakis of Yale University, and they had a wide-ranging conversation about various aspects of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, including a discussion of how Donald Trump is politicizing the public health crisis and imperiling U.S. citizens. Again, a highly recommended listen!

If you are looking for an easy, conversational entry into coronavirus, have a listen to one or both podcasts. If you only have time for one, pick the Sam Harris one, as the Joe Rogan one is longer and wanders off into other topics, such as prion diseases, probiotics, and Lyme disease.
