In this episode, Anthony is joined by Dr. Scott Gottlieb, twenty-third commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration and resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, to discuss his new book ‘Uncontrolled Spread: Why Covid-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic’ which shows how the Coronavirus and its variants were able to trounce America's pandemic preparations, and outlines the steps that must be taken to protect against the next outbreak.

Greg Isenberg is the chief executive of Late Checkout and an advisor to Reddit and joins Anthony to explore what the future holds for startups, how he watched TikTok grow from infancy to a global phenomenon - and his favourite conspiracy theory on Reddit right now.

Finally, Anand Menon, political scientist, professor and director of the UK in a Changing Europe initiative talks with Anthony about the US-Taiwan relationship, the difficult decisions facing Australia - and shares his Malbec of choice!
