What happens when a world-renowned scientist, vaccine expert and “OG Villain” (according to RFK Jr.) Dr. Peter Hotez, is allowed to speak his mind on issues surrounding a highly politicized and unprecedented pandemic? Join our hosts Justin Beck, Catherine Delcin and Deepti Pahwa as they explore the hot-button issues surrounding COVID-19 and other public health issues of our time. In this first episode of Contakt World, our hosts talk with Dr. Hotez, and explore his thoughts on the pandemic, as well as how it’s affecting marginalized communities, driving misinformation and straining departments – and even how the biggest e-tailers can be leading promoters of anti-science attitudes. They also speak with Robert Ellington of HALOS - a nonprofit organization in Charleston, S.C., about kinship care, and how COVID has uprooted family structures of all kinds. So, tune in, listen up, and get informed.
