Two new journalistic analyzes of news coverage on the 2020-2021 pandemic were released this week. I was interviewed in each of them.

Science reporter Faye Flam produced a new episode for his podcast “Follow the Science”, with funding from the Society for Professional Journalists. He interviewed me, David Leonhardt of the New York Times and David Wallace-Wells of New York Magazine.

And science journalist Jillian Mock quoted me and a dozen other people she interviewed in her piece for Medscape, ‘Dreck’ to the drama: how the media handled, and were handled, by COVID.
