Oh man, it’s heart aching to think about comparing the number of deaths 😔 this labor rights issues (Catastrophes really) in those Arabian peninsula countries need to be exposed. but no need for the Arab bashing that comes along with it. Or at least the way they were discussing it on the gap fest (maybe Im being too sensitive to it who knows i also have my biases)
More coverage of the Elizabeth Holmes case!! Excellent overview of the defense/prosecution arguments in this one.
The story of this guy is wild. Went in debt to buy doge and has made millions now, but he refuses to sell...
This was heart breaking to listen to. The Daily rams home how much of a tragedy the fall of Afghanistan is and how betrayed the people over there feel. If you’re wondering why anyone should care, then listen to this episode.
I didn’t realize the flu of 1918 actually dwindled in the summer but then came back hard in the fall. Hopefully we can produce some treatment by then 😷
One of my favorite arguments in this episode is "I'm vegan and healthy, I don't need a vaccine" 😂😂 in all seriousness, I do think conversations like this are extremely important. Everyone has their own reasons for getting vaccinated or not getting vaccinated, and I found the personal stories in this episode so interesting. Such a bizarre cultural phenomenon that we are living through.
