Here’s what people who take Covid seriously should know about their risk with Delta

This week, we are joined once again by Dr. Stephanie Langel from Duke University's Center for Human Systems Immunology. But this time, we're going to change things up a bit and ignore the loud minority who "do their own research" on Youtube and focus instead on what people who take Covid seriously should know about this new phase of the pandemic. 

Then we welcome Eric Boehlert, founder and editor of Press Run, back to the show to talk about why ostensibly neutral journalists feel so comfortable offering their own, often poorly informed opinions about the US withdrawal from Afghanistan-- and how that editorializing is skewing public perceptions about the end of a fruitless 20-year war.
