Lindsay Morgan interviews George Rutherford and Kim Yi Dionne

Though COVID-19 failed to feature prominently in the US midterms, the aftershocks of the pandemic are still influencing politics in the US and beyond. In a new Talking Policy episode, host and PVG editor Lindsay Morgan talks with George Rutherford, an infectious disease specialist and professor of epidemiology at UC San Francisco, and Kim Yi Dionne, a political scientist at UC Riverside, about how COVID-19 has been politicized, how it compares to other disease outbreaks, and the tensions between self and collective interests. Talking Policy is a podcast of the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation, which supports Political Violence At A Glance.
