Ed Yong, The Atlantic


Ed Yong is perhaps one of the greatest writers I know. Ed is a staff writer for The Alantic, where he covers science.

He has recently written two brilliant pieces about the COVID-19 pandemic. In How The Pandemic Will End, Ed writes with some authority in first person. It’s informed opinion, but still ripe with objective facts, expert quotes and opinions. In Why the Coronavirus Has Been So Successful, Ed is more objective, with traditional narrative, but his voice still shines through. Take a look. You’ll learn something about what we’re all facing, and see how a dedicated professional has elevated the art of science writing.

More Ed here at a TedTalk.
