  1. Plot Twist - On the Media

    From boosters to breakthrough infections, pandemic vocabulary is still all over the news. On this week's On the Media, why the terms we use to talk about the virus obscure as much as they reveal. And, why the history of medical progress is filled with so many twists and turns. Plus, why a preference for simple stories has made it so hard to keep track of the pandemic. 1. Katherine J. Wu [@KatherineJWu], staff writer at The Atlantic, on the slippery definitions of our pandemic vocabulary. Listen. 2. Dr. Paul Offit [@DrPaulOffit], professor of pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, on why medical progress always carries risk. Listen. 3.

With some help from Kurt Vonnegut. Listen.

Later in the episode, Rose chats with University of California San Diego professor and preeminent cognitive scientist, Lera Boroditsky, for a deeper exploration of cognition and language.
