I learned a lot about this pandemic (including how testing really works) from 2 podcast episodes:

The podcast Deep Background with Noah Feldman has recently featured especially good episodes with information about the COVID-19 pandemic. This twice-a-week podcast, hosted by the Harvard Constitutional Law professor who tested before the House Judiciary Committee during the hearings that led to Trump's impeachment, is in my regular rotation. As a layperson, I found these discussions both very informative and easy to follow. I hope you'll enjoy them as well.

You can listen to these podcast episodes on the show's home page, at the individual "Play in browser" links listed below, or in your favorite podcast app (for example Stitcher, IHeartRadio, or Apple Podcasts).
