Interesting, but super biased. This should be titled, "In support of vaccination". Would be nice to hear a show without any bias. I would give this 1 out of 5 stars.

when you insinuate that somehow vaccine hesitancy is linked to racism your material immediately takes a propagandist dive...

I thought this might be an actual impartial look at both sides, but when you put one side into three categories; stupid, arrogantly stupid, or greedy, it pretty much throws impartiality out the window. Keep believing the government knows what's best for you and would never lie to you.

They used to have a great show discussing great moments on Reddit. Not so much anymore, acting out alien shows and vaccine theatre. Hoping they come back home for a couple more weeks before bailing.

I thought this topic was well covered and fairly potraied for the most part. The one thing I thought that was missing was hearing from parents of children who are vaccine injured or died from vaccines. I believe in vaccination but there are risks, as with any drug or medicine. People have a right to know the risks of vaccination as well as the risks of not vaccinating. Thanks.

For what it's worth, I thought those were great stand up jokes! Especially for your first time. Overall this was one of my favorite episodes I've heard so far (been listening in a random order). I wish I had the money to donate for a song, but I definitely shared with all my friends!
