Show Notes

In this episode, Yale students Noah Riley ’24, Isha Brahmbhatt ’24, and Trevor MacKay ’25 talk COVID and how Yale’s response made campus life miserable. The student panel discusses the long-term effects of those policies and how the college campus still hasn’t recovered from the damage done:

  • Noah Riley: “I think it was the worst semester of school that I’ve ever had… It was just very suffocating.”
  • Isha Brahmbhatt: “I don’t think Yale did a good job at all. They didn’t seem to be really caring about what students wanted and how they could make a better experience for everyone.”
  • Trevor MacKay: “Making friends was so difficult because of COVID that it was almost like an act of resistance to Yale’s COVID regime as we’ve been describing it.”

Hoover Institution Senior Fellow Scott Atlas talked about the censorship he faced – even as a White House official – for sharing the data on masking and lockdowns, and highlighted how the lockdown policies too cost lives.
