    Yep. It's another vaccine episode.

    SURPRISE! We thought we were done with vaccines too. But recent events in Jamaica forced us to do ONE more MINI episode around the COVID-19 vaccine. (This episode is particularly specific to the Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine). Please listen to our previous vaccine episodes before this one!!!! We promise we won't do any more.
