We have an excellent episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with Ilya Yashin and Kadiyali Srivatsa.

First we welcome to the show Ilya Yashin, a Russian opposition activist and writer, and a leader of the liberal PARNAS party, who has recently written a report about Russia’s hybrid efforts at political control, especially with how it’s practiced on Ukraine. He discusses sanctions, Rex Tillerson, and the state of opposition politics in Russia today.

Then, Kadiyali M. Srivatsa, a doctor, inventor, and publisher who has worked in acute and intensive pediatric care in British hospitals, speaks with Richard about the dangers posed by antibiotic-resistant “superbugs.” He also introduces his free Dr. MAYA (Medical Advice You Access) app, which can help prevent pandemics by monitoring clusters of infections at the local level. Plus, tune in to learn why he suggests you might actually be better off in a dirty hospital than a hyper clean one.
