Better than I Could Do

Abby is a good interviewer and seems to have a genuine interest in the topic at hand.

The show can suffer because it can have the biases of the single guest being interviewed. This is a problem due to the shows brevity. Often the source of guests is FOX News which can at times tend to lean to the right, however not as extremely as NPR programs lean to the left.

It’s mRNA vaccine, not mra!!!! The doctor needs to go back to school. This is why we do not trust our doctors.
