Calling Lab Leak Early with the Washington Post's Josh Rogin (convo)

1 month ago

support us on substack:

Roughly two years ago, Josh Rogin, a China columnist for the Washington Post, went on Joe Rogan's podcast and laid out a possible epic irony at the heart of America's pandemic response: Anthony Fauci, our loving COVID savior, had long been the federal government's foremost champion of gain-of-function research, and gain-of-function research could be what birthed COVID in the first place. Back then, Rogin was widely pilloried for pushing a MAGA conspiracy theory. Today, with lab leak looking increasingly likely as the origin story of the pandemic and Fauci steadily obfuscating his role in the work of the Wuhan lab, Rogin looks epicly vindicated. We had him on to swag out:
