We start this week's episode off with a monologue covering a few current events, notably the recent editorial on the COVID-19 pandemic in the USA published by the New England Journal of Medicine titled "Dying in a Leadership Vacuum". From there we interview Dr. Margaret McCartney on her recent opinion piece in the BMJ titled "We need better evidence on non-drug interventions for covid-19"; we talk about masks, schools, the need for randomized trials, and more. Finally, we interview Dr. Jason Sheltzer on his recent papers on cancer biology and the implications of his findings on clinical medicine.
