Trump has Covid -- We discuss what this means with Coronavirus expert Craig Spencer MD
UnPresidented: Creating change that empowers the Resistance
In today's special episode, Cliff and I talk to NYC emergency room doc Craig Spencer MD about Donald Trump, Melania, favorite Trump aide Hope Hicks, and RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel all being diagnosed with Covid-19. Craig is the Director of Global Health in Emergency Medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. He currently divides his time between providing clinical care in New York and working internationally in public health as a board member of Doctors Without Borders USA.Craig has dealt first-hand with the Coronavirus pandemic in NYC. He walks us through a timetable of when Trump might have been infected with the Coronavirus, when Trump was likely contagious, what the risks are for someone Trump's age with Trump's comorbidities, to what degree Trump must now isolate himself from the public, and whether it's even safe for Trump and Joe Biden to debate in two weeks. Cliff and I then talk about what the diagnosis means for the presidential race, about Trump not even letting Biden knows that he might have been exposed, and more. Lots to discuss.
Black Mamba All Women Anti Poaching Unit, Craig Spencer, with Coexist Ep. 157
Craig Spencer, Director of the conservation NGO Transfrontier Africa", started the Black Mamba All-Women Anti-Poaching Unit in 2013, to tackle the sudden surge in rhino poaching in the western boundary of the Greater Kruger National Park, South Africa. Starting with 6 young women from the local tribal communities, the team soon grew to 36 and patrolled a 60 000ha Big 5 landscape whilst Craig was the Head Warden of the Balule region. The all-women unit has diversified to include their sister-project, the Bush Babies, where 10 primary schools in three tribal villages are visited daily for conservation education and community engagement.

NYC emergency room Doc Craig Spencer on the Trump Covid fiasco
UnPresidented: Creating change that empowers the Resistance
Our guest today is Dr. Craig Spencer MD MPH, the Director of Global Health in Emergency Medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. Craig is an emergency room doctor who divides his time between providing clinical care in New York City and working internationally in public health as a member of the board of directors of Doctors Without Borders US. Craig is also a Covid expert, having personally worked on scores of patients in NYC over the past seven months, particularly during the really awful period beginning at the end of March, and you may have seen him on CNN talking about the Coronavirus and US policy. Finally, you might also remember Craig as the guy who went to Guinea to fight Ebola a few years back, and unknowingly brought the disease back to NYC, causing quite a scare. We talk to Craig about Covid, what is was like as an emergency room doc in NYC during the peak of the crisis, Trump's response to the crisis, Ebola, and whether there's any hope on the horizon with regards to vaccines and more. It was a surprisingly fun talk, and quite informative as well. I think you'll like it.This is a free 30-minute excerpt of our interview with Dr. Spencer.
