I always wondered what bits were edited out of the weekly show. Now that I know, I will never again think I missed anything.

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.
