this is crazy, you needed to talk to more people before recording this episode. what about all the suicides because of non native EMFs.. cell phone towers gets installed in their areas, and people don't realise they are there.. the affect the brain in ways people don't realise. Epstein an example. Two people you need to talk to, Nicolas Penault and Jack Kruse. they will make you want to rerecord this episode.
