DP(E): “In the Bubble with Andy Slavitt: Following One Shift in the COVID-19 Unit (with ER Dr. Megan Ranney)”

Starting another blog post series! This one has a simple goal: Share one podcast episode daily as that day’s “must listen”. Given my wide-ranging podcast appetite, these will range across the spectrum from pop culture, to politics, to healthcare & the pandemic, to business & startups, to psychology, sports, statistics, and…yeah, you get the idea.

  • The need to wear surgical masks over N95 masks due to the cost of the latter and the need to keep them as clean as possible for re-use, vs. the much cheaper and more readily available surgical masks.
