My Covid Journey, I thought it was the flu at first...Symptoms, Recovery, Getting Vaccinated
First of all sincere apologies to everyone tuning in to this episode for my horrible sounding voice, I had a tough time hearing myself(had to for editing purposes) and since the Podcast is only in audio format (atleast for now) it was not a pleasant listen, I do hope the content somewhat makes up for the audio.
While I sounded like I had a bad cold(I did not, was still coming out of Co-vid) in this episode, I am pleased to inform that I have completely recovered and also received my first dose of the Astrazaneca vaccine. My personal belief especially having gone thru Co-vid is that one should look into options such as vaccination to give themselves the best opportunity to fight the virus and while I had terrible symptoms for a day post the vaccine, that is a small price to pay against this unforgiving Global virus.
While I count myself extremely fortunate to not have any breathing issues or require hospitalization, it still was a bit of a worrisome time and especially the loss of taste and smell hit me quite hard. Morning coffee is an integral part of my waking up process for all my Adult life and to not enjoy the taste and aroma was quite depressing at that time. Luckily it wasn’t very long before I got my taste back and I touch upon that in this Episode which was also the day I felt more energetic after almost ten days of feeling extremely fatigued.
I hope this is the last time that I do the Podcast without any Guests, I am feeling great and extremely motivated and ready to release some amazing content with some amazing guests.
Stay tuned and if you have any feedback or comments, reach out to me directly at email@example.com
Stay safe everyone and Enjoy the Episode
David Henty - Art Forger. a world where Paintings that make it to Auction Houses that are NOT originals
I first saw David Henty on a Documentary on channel VICE on Youtube. It was an interesting insight into a world which most have no idea about and even some of the biggest experts have occasionally been fooled knowingly or unknowingly. The "Art World' is going through an interesting phase with NFTs, payment with Bitcoin and an overall shakeup with technology and we discuss this and much more on the Podcast.
David Henty is an Art Forger and proud to be one in his own words. Overall this was a light hearted conversation that allowed a glimpse into his world, Enjoy

Episode 24 - Laila Mickelwait, Founder/CEO Justice Defense Fund. Discussing Human Trafficking and Porn Hub
If you have ever watched Porn online, you may have accidentally been part of a crime. Millions of people don't realize the content they viewed might have been of a person who has been trafficked or was underage.
Laila Mickelwait discusses in depth her fight against the biggest player, PornHub and we talk about why PH has been able to get away for as long as it has, why were there no verification procedures to upload content on the site till recently and the lack of action against this company and it's founders.
In December 2020, Porn Hub deleted 80% of content from it's site. 80%. Let that sink in.
Brave survivors are coming out and lawsuits are finally being filed, while it does appear that progress is being made, the fight still continues as the site is still up and the management is still not tried for the crimes it knowingly allowed to happen.
