I watched on YouTube but will probably relisten on my way to work. It just makes me so happy/relieved that masking is kind of backward thinking now. Like welcome to a normal year of illness for the kids.

My second time listening and I missed the pot part. Slightly confused about why SpaceX having a non-high policy is not "grown-up". Maybe in a sensible article VP can explain why pot is so wonderful. And why I should love to smell it driving everywhere I go. Not being sassy, I just don't like pot smoke.

If I were in a meeting with VP and people were "brainstorming" he would get such an onslaught of eye rolls, goofy faces and finger gestures from me I'd most certainly get kicked out. I loathe meetings. Such a complete waste of time with people who don't actually do the work. BLM bought fancy houses too just like Simone. Is this the new infraction to accuse people with?

what you are saying about vaccines and boosters makes sense, but why all of this cannot be applied to healthcare workers? everybody has a right for body autonomy or health decision, except healthcare workers...

Driving through Flint, see a kid with a mask on his face outside. Then notice his pants are completely underneath his glutes and his entire backside of grey underwear is showing outside of his skinny jeans. Does anyone else see the irony, the negotiation with the universe in my brain? I'll wear a mask for another year if someone can please, pull up his pants and let this kid breath outside. Yes. Even one pair of pants. Even one set of lungs. Singular. Fun show😁

1. Context is everything. I empathize with Dr. Prasad when he gets annoyed when people use sub-par studies to make a point. (after studying scripture for many years I cringe when people quote it out of its context) 2. A child in a classroom being singled out for taking off a mask when the rule has been uplifted is precisely the individual that deserves an advocate. I hope you advocate for that kid Dr.Z. 3. I'm not interested in getting a fourth booster but need my job. Is there any chance it will be mandated in the fall when the cases go up? 4. "Piles of poo" 😂😂Lmao

I think that any establishment that mandates a vaccine card in February 2022 is way behind in the science. Omicron laughs in the face of the Wuhan vaccine. Laughed at the "kill all the deer" thing. I found the demonization of the vaccine pretty stupid but I also find those who still think it should be mandated to be equally stupid. It doesn't work on Omicron people 🤷‍♀️

I don't disagree and I love the humor. But there is a disconnect between this podcast and the 'mood' of the day. Death, resuscitation, communicability, and suffering still reign here in MI. No one can say 'its over' to my ears because I can't hear it with any amount of belief. Rough week. 1-8-22

These guys are absolutely brilliant. VP & ZD, I want you to know that I was very hesitant to get vaccinated (for reasons I won't go into here). The vaccine mandates turned me further *off* of vaccination, but your content turned me *on* to it. So the individual who claims that you're stoking the fire of anti-vaxxers doesn't have the whole story. We don't really have family doctors where I live so, for better or worse, yours is the best advice I'm getting these days.

I think kids masking at Thanksgiving is stupid too. It occurred to me listening that kids at Thanksgiving naturally socially distance from adults. 🤔
