We are dropping in your feed today to tell you about a new Lemonada Media series called Fail Better with David Duchovny. On Fail Better, David, who has experienced both low and high profile failures throughout his life, explores the vast world of failure - how it holds us back, propels us forward, and ultimately shapes our lives. Each week, he will chat with guests like Ben Stiller, Bette Midler, and more about how our perceived failures have actually been our biggest catalysts for growth, revelation, and even healing. Through these conversations, he hopes listeners can learn how to embrace the opportunity of failure and fail better together. You’re about to hear a preview of the first episode of Fail Better, where David catches up with Ben Stiller. Believe it or not, Ben Stiller has failed. (Remember Zoolander 2?

Introducing Archetypes, a refreshing and dynamic podcast where Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, dives into the labels that try to hold women back. During these intimate and candid conversations with guests from around the world, we discover how these archetypes impact our everyday lives in ways big and small.

Why You Need to Say Yes to Affordable Housing

America’s homelessness crisis is getting worse, despite the billions spent each year to fix it. Single family home prices continue to rise.

Andy is joined by Tomiquia Moss, founder and CEO of All Home CA; and Tommy Newman, vice president of engagement and activation at United Way of Greater Los Angeles. They talk about humanizing unhoused people and about streamlining affordable housing construction to fill the state’s multimillion-unit shortage. Keep up with Andy on Post and Twitter @ASlavitt.

The GOP Takes on Gen Z

In the latest iteration of voter suppression, members of the Republican Party are trying to prevent college students from voting by getting rid of polling places on campuses and disallowing college IDs as valid forms of identification. They say it’s in the name of voter fraud and public safety, but could it also be due to the fact that young voters are casting their ballots for Democrats in record numbers?

What Happens if America Defaults on its Debt? (with Jason Furman)

America’s debt represents every deficit that's been run by every president, from George Washington to Joe Biden. Now, there’s a showdown between the White House and Congress over whether or not the House will vote to lift the debt ceiling as they've done dozens of times in the past. Andy gets specific with Jason Furman, who was an advisor to President Obama during the 2011 debt ceiling debate, about how we got here, whether our debt is too high, and what actually happens if America defaults on its debt.

Turning Down the Heat on Gas Stove Culture Wars

The latest fire in the culture war ignited when a government official suggested the possibility of banning gas stoves. Republicans quickly took to social media to proclaim their love for the household appliance, while environmentalists were left trying to explain the nuance of another long-term goal. Andy convenes a group of experts to cut through partisan politics in order to get facts, reasonable opinions, and alternative options. Vox climate reporter Rebecca Leber explains why the gas stove has become a status symbol over the past century and what climate implications come along with it. Then, Dr. Aaron Bernstein at the Harvard School of Public Health explains the health implications and ways to mitigate those risks without having to give up your stove immediately.

Why Student Debt Forgiveness is Good for America

Andy wants to share one of his favorite episodes from this year that’s just as relevant today as it was when we taped it. Millions of student loan borrowers breathed a sigh of relief after the White House revealed a plan to wipe clean a huge swath of debt (though it’s currently tied up in the courts). How meaningful is this policy, what are the broader implications to the economy, and will it help future borrowers? Harvard Economist Susan Dynarski and the Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Andre Perry break down the plan and use their own experiences to humanize the root problems that this relief begins to address. Plus, Andre argues why you will benefit from this policy even if you won’t get debt wiped personally. Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt.

How 15 Million Americans Could Lose Health Insurance in 2023

The public health emergency declared when COVID-19 hit the U.S. in early 2020 is expected to end this coming spring. What does that mean for the vaccines and testing that Americans have been receiving for free, not to mention their access to broader health insurance coverage? Andy explores this question with physician and Medicaid expert Meera Mani, who explains why 15 million people could be at risk of losing care. Prem Shah, the chief pharmacy officer at CVS Health, then reminds Andy of the expanded role pharmacies played during the pandemic and how that could go away, too. The end of the public health emergency may be a bigger deal than you think. Keep up with Andy on Twitter and Post @ASlavitt. Follow Meera Mani @MeeraMani1 and Prem Shah @CVSHealth.

NYC’s Controversial Plan for the Homeless

New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ controversial plan to address homelessness would allow police to involuntarily remove people with mental illness from the street and bring them to the hospital. He calls it the moral thing to do. Is it, or is it a violation of people's constitutional rights? Are there better ways? Andy speaks with reporter Maya Kaufman about how the plan is getting rolled out and the reaction so far. Then he turns to mental health crisis responder Ben Adam Climer, who explains why this approach won’t work and lays out more successful alternatives.  Keep up with Andy on Twitter and Post @ASlavitt.

The Deception Behind Crypto, and its Actual Uses (with Laura Shin)

Many crypto platforms entice new investors by saying you should buy into the industry even if you don't understand it, or else risk getting left behind. Andy has some issues with that. He speaks to reporter Laura Shin, who’s been covering the crypto industry since 2015, about his major qualms with digital currencies, from carbon emissions and marketing deception to its unregulated nature.

Andy Recommends: Uncared For

Andy wants to share a new show from Lemonada Media called Uncared For. You’re more likely to die as a pregnant person in the United States than any other wealthy nation in the world. Why? This six-part series, hosted by award-winning journalist SuChin Pak (Add to Cart, MTV News), takes a deeply personal and wide-ranging look at maternal health care around the globe to find the answer. We start in the United States then travel to Germany, the Netherlands, and Costa Rica to see what works and what desperately needs to change. In the first episode of Uncared For, we’ll hear from health equity researchers, birth providers – like the postpartum doula who was there for SuChin – and Black mothers who have been dismissed and misdiagnosed in our broken system of care. How did our system end up like this? And what does this crisis tell us about how our healthcare system stacks up globally? Keep up with Andy on Twitter and Post @ASlavitt.

How Antisemitism Became Mainstream

Antisemitism is infiltrating mainstream politics and pop culture in new and pernicious ways. Fresh off a meeting at the White House about the rise of antisemitism, George Selim from the Anti-Defamation League describes to Andy how the words from a politician, rapper or comedian can help spark the hate crimes his organization tracks.

Is Our Winter COVID Wave Coming? (with Katelyn Jetelina)

Despite some uptick in cases and hospitalizations, COVID is disrupting life less this winter compared to winters past. Why, and what does that mean as we enter 2023?

What Zero-COVID Protests Mean for China and the World

The widespread protests against the Chinese government are the most extensive since Tiananmen Square in 1989. The demonstrations are against both the severe zero-COVID policies and Xi Jinping’s rule. But the consequences of protesting in China are harsh. Andy speaks with two China experts, Xiao Qiang at the University of California Berkeley and Michael Beckley at Tufts University, about whether COVID rules will loosen, why these protests could mark the start of an even more authoritarian era, and what a coming crackdown on the Chinese people might look like.

Trump’s Next Move (with Maggie Haberman)

Trump is expected to formally announce his run for president any day now. His reputation was tarnished after the predicted red wave in the midterms didn’t surface, but as New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reminds guest host Gloria Riviera in this episode, Trump has survived political vulnerability many times before. Maggie talks about who is taking a step back from Trump after the midterms, who’s still supporting him, and those who are walking a very fine line. Plus, she shares an anecdote that she left out of her new book. Keep up with Gloria Riviera on Twitter @griviera. Follow Maggie Haberman on Twitter @maggieNYT.

Revisiting the Case for Climate Optimism

With a potentially split legislature on the horizon, passing climate policy could become a lot more difficult. We revisit a recent show on one piece of policy President Biden was able to get passed: the Inflation Reduction Act. Andy speaks with public policy expert Leah Stokes, who helped craft The IRA’s climate provisions. She explains how the law will transition the economy from fossil fuels to clean energy and get us closer to cutting pollution in half. NASA climatologist Gavin Schmidt tells Andy what actions are needed to prevent further global warming, and how the law could achieve that.  Note: This interview was recorded before the Inflation Reduction Act was passed.

How the Midterms Could Give Rise to More MAGA Extremism (with Robert Draper)

MAGA Republicans like Marjorie Taylor Greene will hold major influence in the House if the GOP takes back the majority in the midterms. What impact will that have on the priorities set by Congress and the way our government functions? Andy speaks with journalist Robert Draper, whose new book, “Weapons of Mass Delusion,” details how a new breed of Republicans have taken the politics of hysteria to even greater extremes. He forecasts a potential future where Greene becomes House speaker, an impeachment inquiry gets announced on Biden, and a government shutdown is used as leverage to pass conservative priorities supported by the MAGA base.

Navigating Putin’s Escalating Threat of Nuclear War

President Biden says Vladimir Putin is not joking about his threats to use nuclear weapons to get out of the war in the Ukraine. As tensions escalate worldwide, America continues to supply the Ukrainian army with the equipment it needs to fight Russia. Andy speaks with Andrea Kendall-Taylor and Andrew Weiss, experts on Putin and Russian intelligence, about what it would take for Putin to follow through on that threat. They discuss what the war looks like now, how it’s impacting oil prices heading into winter, and the calculated moves President Biden must make to ensure the war doesn’t spiral into something much more dangerous and widespread.

How Hunger in America Drives the Obesity Epidemic

At its first hunger summit in 50 years, the White House announced a plan last week to end hunger and reduce obesity by 2030. Is that really possible, and what will it take to get there? Andy speaks with Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, who specializes in obesity medicine, about the link between obesity and hunger plus how race, stress, and poverty play a role. Using examples from her life and her practice, she explains why obesity should be viewed and treated as the disease it is, using methods like medicine and surgery in tandem with diet and exercise.

On the Road with Asylum Seekers

An immigrant’s unpredictable journey to America doesn’t end when they get to the border. Political stunts by Governors Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis sending asylum seekers to the steps of the U.S. Capitol and Martha’s Vineyard is the latest reminder. Andy speaks with two people embedded in the journey to the U.S., LA Times reporter Molly O’Toole and New York Times reporter Michael Shear, who explain the messy, lengthy process asylum seekers face. They discuss why deterrence policies don’t work, the flawed myths behind “good” and “bad” immigrants, and why we'll see more Afghan immigrants crossing through Central America.

Why Democracy Really Is in Danger (with David Leonhardt)

Election denialism represents a fundamental breakdown in our democracy, a problem America has never experienced in its history. But that’s not it. There’s also an increasingly alarming disconnection between public opinion and the power to shape American politics. Andy explores these two threats with New York Times senior writer David Leonhardt, who explains why candidates that win the most votes are less and less able to take power and address the country’s problems. They also dig into the specific policy changes that could help protect our democracy, from Electoral College reform bills to ranked choice voting.  Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt.

How We Can Put Every Kid through College

What if every baby could receive a college savings account, regardless of the financial situation they’re born into? That’s the mission behind baby bonds, a government policy championed by Senator Cory Booker that would provide children with a nest egg to start off adulthood. Andy speaks with economist Darrick Hamilton, who proposed the policy in 2010 as a mechanism to reduce the racial wealth gap in the United States, and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter, who created a program in his city. They explain how baby bonds could eliminate college debt, why we should invest in kids we don’t personally know, and the money and public support it would take to expand local programs to the national level.

How the Nightmare of Family Separations at the Border Became Reality (with Caitlin Dickerson)

More than 5,000 children were torn from their parents at the Mexican border during Donald Trump’s presidency, and more than 150 children have yet to be reunited. Atlantic writer Caitlin Dickerson spent 18 months investigating how Trump’s zero tolerance approach became a reality, despite scores of top government officials who felt it was inhumane and logistically fraught. She speaks with Andy about how Congress’ failure to make substantial changes to immigration policy drove this to happen, and could allow it to happen again. Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt.

The Case for Climate Optimism (with Gavin Schmidt and Leah Stokes)

The United States is on the brink of passing a climate bill that could get us closer to making real progress against climate change than we’ve ever been before. Gavin Schmidt, climatologist and director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, talks with Andy about the seemingly insurmountable number of climate catastrophes we’re currently experiencing and how the the Inflation Reduction Act may help finally rein in climate change. We also hear from Leah Stokes, a political scientist and environmental expert who helped craft some of the bill’s climate provisions.

The Jan 6 Enablers Won’t Quit Trump (with Mark Leibovich)

A Post-Roe Update on Male Birth Control

The number one way to prevent an unplanned pregnancy (apart from abstinence) is with contraception. But why does so much of that burden fall on women? In an eye-opening conversation about the development of male birth control, Dr. Brian Nguyen and Dr. Stephanie Page reframe pregnancy as an equally shared responsibility between two partners. They trace a line between the Dobbs v. Jackson decision and the need for male contraception, discuss the clinical trials happening right now, and explain why it’s a step toward building a culture of gender equity.

The Great American Vaccine Debate (re-air with Ken Burns)

On this Fourth of July holiday, we’re returning to a favorite episode with filmmaker Ken Burns about his latest documentary, “Benjamin Franklin.” When he wasn’t busy taming electricity, Franklin was encouraging inoculations to combat the smallpox pandemic of the 18th century. He bitterly regretted not inoculating his 4-year-old son, Francis, who died from smallpox in 1736. Andy talks to Ken about Franklin’s role during the outbreak, how he balanced his libertarian views with scientific and public health reasoning, and whether Franklin would support a COVID-19 vaccine mandate if alive today.

Lack of Women Politicians Doomed Roe - Here's How To Get Them Elected

Women make up more than half of the U.S. population, yet less than a third of the nation’s elected leaders. It’s not because they’re not winning. It’s because they’re not running. And studies show that the gender gap in political ambition is just as big today as it was 20 years ago. Why, and how do we change that? Andy poses those questions to gender and politics researcher Jennifer Lawless and She Should Run founder Erin Loos Cutraro. Walk away from this interview with practical tips on how to run yourself or motivate your friend to turn that thought into an actual candidacy. Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt.

One Million COVID Deaths, Who is Accountable? (with Trump Coronavirus Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx)

As the U.S. hits the tragic milestone of 1,000,000 deaths, Andy talks with Dr. Deborah Birx to explore how it happened and some of the most pivotal moments of President Donald Trump’s COVID response. Birx says she knew she wouldn’t win any popularity contests when she agreed to serve as the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator under Trump in 2020. She was right. Andy gives Birx a chance to respond to criticisms that her public praise of Trump undermined the opportunity to save more lives. The conversation gets heated as it goes on.

Post-Roe America up Close: 1,000 Miles to an Abortion

A post-Roe America could become a reality soon, if Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft ruling becomes the court’s final decision. From the West Alabama Women’s Center in Tuscaloosa, Robin Marty tells Andy how the decision would impact her patients from day one, and urges Americans with privilege to consider how far they’ll go to protect the rights of others.

Twice as Likely to Die from COVID (with Dr. Joneigh Khaldun)

Early on in the pandemic, people of color were nearly twice as likely to die from COVID-19. Those health inequities weren’t surprising to Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, who was among the first public health officials in the nation to demand her state of Michigan collect race and ethnicity data on COVID patients. In fact, solving them has been her life’s work. Now the chief health equity officer at CVS Health, Joneigh tells Andy where her passion for improving the health of underserved communities stems from, including her own personal experience being dismissed by doctors, and the tangible ways the health care system can do better.

Exclusive: FDA Commissioner on COVID-19 Vaccine for Kids 0-5 (with Robert Califf)

Many parents with young children have one question: When will my kid be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine? They got one step closer to an answer this week, when Moderna filed an Emergency Use Authorization for a vaccine the company says is safe and effective for kids ages 6 months through 5 years. FDA Commissioner Robert Califf tells Andy what’s holding up approval, why getting the dose right is so critically important, and whether rumors that the FDA would wait for data on a three-dose vaccine from Pfizer before clearing a two-dose vaccine from Moderna are true.

Are We on Our Way to a Game-Changing Flu Vaccine? (with Uwe Schoenbeck)

For decades, the messenger RNA (mRNA) platform was seen as too unstable and expensive to be used in vaccines or therapeutic medicines. That changed when the COVID-19 pandemic sparked enough urgency, resources, and money to bring about a breakthrough. Andy speaks with Uwe Schoenbeck, the chief scientific officer for Pfizer's Emerging Science & Innovation team, about what makes the mRNA platform more nimble than conventional methods and its potential future uses, including a game-changing flu vaccine and gene editing therapeutics for cancers, Alzheimer's, and HIV/AIDS.

COVID Update: Making Sense of Maskless Travel

Some passengers ripped off their masks in jubilee while others froze in horror when airlines across the country announced mid-flight that a Florida judge had struck down the CDC’s travel mask mandate last week. What does this ruling mean for air travel and daily commutes on public transit? Andy speaks with epidemiologist Katelyn Jetelina about why you should keep your mask on and how to minimize your risk while traveling amid unmasked passengers.

Everything We Know about Long COVID

While COVID caseloads are decreasing in many parts of the United States, many people who have been afflicted throughout the past two years of the pandemic are still suffering with what is commonly called "Long COVID." COVID-19 isn't the first virus to cause long-term illness, but Andy digs into what we know — and don't know — about these lingering symptoms. In Andy's conversation with two experts — Yale's Akiko Iswasaki and Mount Sinai's David Putrino — we'll learn more about hypotheses for why certain people don’t recover fully from the virus, how Long COVID differs from a lingering infection, and what rehabilitation techniques seem to be working best.

Preparing for a Russian Cyberattack on U.S. Infrastructure (with Juliette Kayyem)

Andy talks with disaster expert Juliette Kayyem about how to prepare for scary and unpredictable things, from hurricanes to cyber attacks. As the former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for Intergovernmental Affairs, Juliette accepts that disasters will happen and helps people, companies, and governments “fail safer,” as she puts it. She explains to Andy why a Russian cyber attack on U.S. soil would likely come in the form of an oil, gas, or water disruption.

Why Democracy Depends on Putin's Defeat (with Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch)

She explains how her parents' experience fleeing totalitarian regimes in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany led her to join the U.S. Foreign Service, and relives her painful role as a key witness in the 2020 impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump in which she testified that the President pressured the State Department to remove her based on what she called unfounded and false claims.

Andy talks with Dr. Peter Marks about the FDA’s authorization of a fourth round of vaccines for those 50 and older.

The Great American Vaccine Debate (with Ken Burns)

When he wasn’t busy taming electricity and being a Founding Father of the United States, Benjamin Franklin was encouraging inoculations to combat the smallpox pandemic of the 18th century. Franklin bitterly regretted not inoculating his 4-year-old son, Francis, who died from smallpox when an outbreak hit Philadelphia in 1736. Andy talks to filmmaker Ken Burns, whose new PBS documentary on the founding father comes out April 4, about Franklin’s role during the smallpox pandemic, how he balanced his libertarian views with scientific and public health reasoning, and whether Franklin would support a COVID-19 vaccine mandate if alive today.   Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt and Instagram @andyslavitt.    Follow Ken Burns @KenBurns on Twitter.   Joining Lemonada Premium is a great way to support our show and get bonus content.

Who Will Take Care of Me When I Get Old?

The pandemic forced us to confront many previously unacknowledged societal issues, including the lack of infrastructure we have to support those who need care and those who give it. As COVID-19 deaths near one million in America, the time has come to address the caregiving crisis in this country. There are nearly 50 million unpaid family caregivers and 4.5 million paid home care aides in America, yet they remain largely invisible. Andy explores that dichotomy with Ai-jen Poo, Executive Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Caring Across Generations, and Randy Klein, CEO of Vesta Healthcare. They discuss why this work is historically undervalued and what we can all do to help change that. Plus, how to plan for the care you will likely need or give in your life, and what Build Back Better could do to support caregivers.   Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt and Instagram @andyslavitt.    Follow Ai-jen on Twitter @aijenpoo.    Joining Lemonada Premium is a great way to support our show and get bonus content.

After President Biden said Facebook is "killing people" with COVID misinformation, Andy and Nick discuss what Facebook says its obligation is with regard to misinformation, what they're doing to combat it, and whether it’s enough. In this extended cut from July, they also discuss Nick’s transition from politics to tech, the lessons Facebook learned from the 2016 election, and COVID in the UK.   Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt and Instagram @andyslavitt.    Follow Nick Clegg on Twitter @nickclegg.    Joining Lemonada Premium is a great way to support our show and get bonus content.

A Look at COVID from Conservative America (with Hugh Hewitt)

Andy and conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, who is very much pro-vaccine and anti-federal vaccine mandate, merge echo chambers and discuss where conservatives are at this moment with the pandemic. They get into reasons why an estimated 40% of conservative adults aren't vaccinated, what works and what doesn't when it comes to persuading unvaccinated people, and have an in-depth exchange about mandates. This is an increasingly rare but badly needed conversation, one that is spirited and civil between people who disagree. Plus, Ryan Panchadsaram joins Andy at the beginning of the show to weigh in on the Glasgow Climate Pact.   Keep up with Andy on Twitter @ASlavitt and Instagram @andyslavitt.    Follow Hugh @hughhewitt on Twitter.   Joining Lemonada Premium is a great way to support our show and get bonus content.
