I can't recall exactly which one, but it was discussed. They actually have 800 2 hour discussions, but if you want the latest info in incredible depth, you could just watch the last 10 or so. They alternate between discussions of papers among virologists, immunologists, and evolutionary biologists. They also do a weekly report from Dr. Daniel Griffin, the leader of a large medical group treating lots of Covid patients. The past couple of weeks they have been talking more about Long Covid in both adults and children.
This is an incredibly helpful reference! Thanks!

A well reasoned argument is like a diamond: impervious to corruption and crystal clear - and infinitely rarer.

You are welcome. Their usual crew on TWIV panel discussions are all pretty nice folks and quite approachable. I have corresponded by email with some of them, and even had my comments read on air during their email response interval after their paper review session ends. They all give their email or instagram addresses, individual websites, and mail addresses. Collectively, they have amazing breadth of current scientific knowledge.

They also have podcasts where Vincent and Amy do nothing but answer questions, and do Public Service Announcements for live town hall meetings on line where you can talk to a virologist. Some of those are in Spanish!

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.

I suspect that ‘common sense’ has always been less widespread than common delusion. Note that it is generally delusional in itself!

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
