Listen: A CEO’s arrest, Pfizer’s big deal, & Covid on the rise

Is the next Covid surge upon us? How do you make $350,000 a day in biotech? And when did Seagen find out about its CEO’s arrest?

We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. First, we discuss the latest alarming trends in the Covid-19 pandemic and explaining the curious case of Moderna’s briefly employed chief financial officer. Then we pick apart the implications of Pfizer’s $11.6 billion acquisition of Biohaven and the struggles of a once-promising idea in cancer immunotherapy. Finally, we examine the arrest of Seagen CEO Clay Siegall and the unanswered questions about the company’s response.

For more on what we cover, here’s more on Moderna; here’s the news on Pfizer; here’s more on that immunotherapy trial; here’s the story on Siegall; here’s where you can find episodes of Color Code; here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast; and here’s our complete coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic.
