Although I haven't heard of anyone injecting disinfectant, I have seen reports of people going to the hospital for drinking disinfectant. Not everyone who did it survived. Go Trump! Not!

Great content. I'd really love to transcribe your podcasts. People who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, non-native speakers, or suffer from auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder may have trouble following a fast conversation. Transcription provides an avenue for them to absorb everything you are putting out. My email is vickies2cents@gmail.com. Thank you.

These guests that do multiple npr shows close together is really making my brain work to figure out if I've listened to this one already or not 😅😅

I did look up the wrinkle faced bat, and it looked like it ran into one too many walls! It walks a fine line between cute and the thing nightmares are made of! lol

Thank you for carrying on in the face of great adversity. Never have I been as impressed by the talents of you artists as I was listening to Wait Wait today. Your improv, sans audience, was not only brave, but brilliant. Bravo, to each of you. it meant so very much to me, in my self-imposed isolation, to hear your voices. Again, I thank you for showing up!
