Welcome to the first episode of my new podcast Up Front!
I talked to Ian Miller, the author of the book Unmasked: The Global Failure of COVID Mask Mandates. He also writes a Substack called Unmasked.
We talked about:
The role masks played as visual reminders of a pandemic
Ian’s easy to understand charts which highlighted effectiveness - or rather ineffectiveness - of mask mandates in different US states and countries
The bold claims made by public heath officials about masks
Ian’s experience of writing Unmasked
I think this book will become an invaluable reference for a strange period of time when decisions on masks flip flopped with unbelievable speed. I hope you enjoy our discussion!
