Maine Beacon: The Grassroots Campaign to Stop Drug Corporations from Profiteering off the Pandemic

Margarida Jorge, campaign manager for Lower Drug Prices Now, joins the podcast this week to discuss how pharmaceutical corporations, employing three lobbyists for every member of Congress, are seeking to profit off treatments and vaccines for COVID-19 developed with public money and how Mainers can help make sure these drugs are affordable.

Also: an update on the pandemic in Maine and new announcements from the state, including an expansion of contact tracing.

Plus: How self-delusion can be self-care.
