How long is Martin Shkreli going to be in prison? Is the biotech bubble about to burst? And what’s it like to attend a blood-swapping gala?
The first episode of “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s new biotech podcast, tackles all that and more, with appearances by Martha Stewart, Rod Stewart, and a special helmet meant to preserve your brain if you die in a plane crash. It’s 18-minutes long and we most of the time pronounce “Shkreli” correctly. Prepare to nod skeptically.
If you want more on all the things we talk about, here’s the story on that young blood trial; here’s one on fears of a biotech bubble; and here’s another on all the money pouring into personal genomics.
We’ll back next Thursday evening — and every Thursday evening — so be sure to sign up on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.
And if you have any feedback for us — topics to cover, guests to invite, vocal tics to cease — you can email email@example.com.
