Big shift in NPR narrative about Covid. They're spot on to be skeptical of Pfizer's motives and upset at their actions, but we also have to criticize politicians AND media like NPR for letting it get to this point.

Lol you want 10 dollars a month? While I appreciate your work maybe try using your mute button and quit choking up so much. And show more common sense. Don't ask a tough question and then say, You have 15 seconds. Maybe just work on being more professional.

why did I live on 3 to 4 antibiotic treatments a year? So I could work. I literally went to the doc when I was overtired. I barely got by on my sick leave when I had it and ended up on disability when I ended up on a job with 3 weeks of leave-- which means I could use 3 weeks a year without any time off otherwise and I couldn't go to work even after antibiotics treatments.

Just deleted the Podcast after listening to yo gosh about having 2 women being introduced by Biden. So it doesn't matter they are all corporate whores including Biden, just as long as we have diversity?

And the same ones outraged over the governers inappropriate sexual actions were fine with the credible rape allegations against Biden so whatever. It's just a weapon you use.

strange when that pundit was talking about Pinochet, he doesn't mention the pivotal role of the CIA and Milton Friedman using Chile as a testing ground for their economic policy of a totally unhindered free market which resulted in high inflation and high unemployment. you think that would be something to mention.

Sick Out response from teachers over COVID era conditions is something that should have been ongoing for the last 20 years. "Smaller Class Sizes" to ease and protect?? What about smaller Class Sizes to EDUCATE or children?
