It's going to be interesting to listen this episode in 6 months from now and see how these predictions turned out.

I'm what many people would describe as an "anti-vaxxer" but I'm open to the Pro-Vax arguments? Does he have any podcasts that actually address common criticisms of vaccines?

I'm a Lab Tech! :) We care about the patients too! So much so that we would rather recollect a bad sample than report out erroneous results. It is our responsibility to provide accurate labs and avoid the harm of reporting the wrong thing. If everything is STAT, nothing is STAT. We are running hundreds of tests at a time. We're watching for inaccurate results, bad samples (which we have to call, document, cancel, reorder, and sometimes correct results for) critical results (which we have to individually call and document), deltas, analyzer issues (sometimes requiring a screeching halt to all testing until we fix the problem) samples requiring dilutions, answer phone calls, etc. We're sometimes doing all of these at the same time. :D P.S. We're not all introverts! :)
