Repressive Legislation in The New Abnormal
Today's interview with Kim Iverson on CA's attack on medical freedom, and my recent two-part series on the Dr. Drew Podcast about my book, "The New Abnormal: The Rise of the Biomedical Security State"
Kim Iverson, a TV journalist formerly at The Hill and now streaming her own show on YouTube, has been one of the most honest and courageous voices during the pandemic. She is the rare journalist today who is willing to follow the evidence wherever it may lead. I sat down with her this morning for an interview about California’s latest attempt to suppress the free speech of physicians and undermine the doctor patient relationship. Assembly Bill 2098, which I have posted about previously—see Punishing Dissident Physicians and The Censorship of Medicine—is set to become law unless the governor vetoes it today.
I also had a wide-ranging two-part conversation with Dr. Drew Pinsky on his podcast recently, where we discussed my new book, The New Abnormal: The Rise of the Biomedical Security State. You can listen on Spotify:
It’s also available on the Apple Podcasts (link to Part 1 and Part 2), or your other favorite podcast app.
You can pre-order the book here and it will ship in one month…
Great interview. I'm fighting the BS like you. Looking forward to seeing you again on the 14th. Best wishes.
Three fairly different views of our pandemic emergency that never ends but likely history will be filled with mountains of analysis for our Covidian era. Never heard Dr Drew before but agree with his view that your teaching to the world at large takes your student experience and magnifies its impact where it is desperately needed. Also big time kudos and thanks to your wife who supported your ethical but risky choices with five kiddies in tow.. hugely huge too!
