Many of our readers will be out and about exercising their democratic voting rights today, so we thought it was only fitting to share a little election day podcast for your listening pleasure. This week, the chaps over at STAT had a look at how much politics can actually affect how our medicines get made. The answer? A lot more than you think…

“We’ll start with a look at the issues that reached the forefront of this election cycle for the drug industry and the lasting effect they could have on development of new medicines.”

“We will also tackle this question: Will your vote today have any effect on what happens next in the drug pricing debate?”
