This is why Americans shouldn't cover something from another country. Most of the pronunciations for the examples were wrong. And now whoever has listened to this thinks it's the right way to do it. Bunch of berks.

chuck in the beginning of the radium girls episode you told everyone you had covid even though you were fully vaccinated and now in this episode you are trying to say that if you get the vaccine you will not catch covid... sounds like a false claim to me, did you really think people wouldn't notice this.

Hey "Let's go Branden," get a life. This Podcast is not for closed minded, jaded, intentionally ignorant, hateful, confused, scared and hurt little people like you. You have been taught to be afraid of anything you don't understand, and in the case of this Podcast, it could be the witty banter, FACTS, information, education, or multiple syllable words that terrify you. I get that. Knowing stuff is hard. (sit and pout) (frowny face) Get a life ya silly goose.
