In this episode of Radio Corona, Gideon Lichfield, editor in chief of MIT Technology Review, speaks with Tomas Pueyo, whose Medium post “Coronavirus: Why You Should Act Now” has become one of the defining explainers on the internet about the coronavirus outbreak (it has been viewed more than 40 million times, and translated into at least 30 languages).
In interviews, Pueyo is quick to point out he is not an epidemiologist. He is the vice president of growth at Course Hero, an online learning platform. Even so, his post synthesized data available about the outbreak into a compelling and clear argument that influenced many people's thinking.
Pueyo and Lichfield will be discussing how to find and communicate trustworthy information in the midst of a pandemic. They will also be taking your questions.
