How bad will this winter be? Is everything coming up Biogen? And who’s going to be president on Jan. 20?

We discuss all that and more on this week’s episode of “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. First, STAT’s Helen Branswell joins us to discuss what the winter has in store for the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Then, we discuss the latest surprising twist in Biogen’s quest to win FDA approval for a polarizing treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. Finally, STAT reporter Casey Ross joins to talk about the recent death and legacy of Bertrand Might, a 12-year boy born with a rare genetic disease.

For more on what we cover, here’s the latest on Covid-19 ahead of the winter; here’s an update on aducanumab; here’s the story on Bertrand Might; and here’s our complete coverage of the coronavirus pandemic.
