Listen: Leana Wen on the pandemic’s new normal and whether Twitter is real life

Are we supposed to just get used to superspreader events? What’s going with Editas Medicine? And why are people on Twitter so angry?

We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. Leana Wen, an emergency medicine physician and public health professor at George Washington University, joins us to talk about the many complexities of living with Covid-19 and the tricky task of defining “normal” in 2022. We also discuss the latest news in the life sciences, including Editas’ new CEO, Aduhelm’s future, and the data on Covid-19 vaccines for kids.

For more on what we cover, here’s Wen’s latest column; here’s the news on Editas; here’s more on Biogen; here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast; and here’s our complete coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic.
