Hear Swiss stories for the world on The Swiss Connection podcast

Published on 13/04/2021

Why aren’t Swiss pharma giants more involved in making coronavirus vaccines? What lessons can we learn from a Swiss couple convicted of child sex abuse in India? What does a Swiss company making encryption machines have to do with “the intelligence coup of the century”? 

Hear these stories and more on The Swiss Connection, our podcast that brings Swiss stories to the world with host Susan Misicka.

In this episode: Switzerland is the home of some of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies. But when it comes to Covid-19 vaccines, Novartis and Roche are not part of the discussion. How did they miss out? Or did they? And what will it mean for their role in future pandemics?
