a few thoughts on change for the US population focusing on this episode: - detection of mental diseases: medicare for all - gun violence: gun control - prevention of opioid addiction: much stricter laws and regulations on how the pharma industry can market their products I do not elaborate on these points just this: take a look at other western nations and how they prevent these problems to arise in the first place ... stop shouting USA USA USA No1 and face it, the US needs less military spending and more social services spending. The US is no1 in military spending and producing billionaires but that's it ... I rest my case....

This is the episode where the editor was on vacation. It would have been more bearable and easier to listen to, if someone had edited out the multiple repeats of needless information. Ok, the dog circles left. Did we need to know that at all much less the number of times it was said? And drinking dog water? How about more about the story itself?
