Thanks for trying to debunk the stupid “concentration camp” stupidity.
We have been fairly free here and our death rate nothing like the rest of the world .
Also our first vaccine rate is in the high 80s almost 90s … this is freaking the anti vax / conspracy fools completely out that most of us are sensible and just want to get back to the pub!!!!!

Great Guests/Topics - Iffy Audio

For such a young podcast it's a credit to Quillette that they're able to pull in the quality of guests that they do. Sadly the audio is not always up to the standard that you'd expect from a publication like Quillette. That one issue aside, I expect this podcast to grow into the standard bearer for news, politics & culture.
