“Frank” conversation

Wow, Andy. What an amazing discussion, and it was good to hear you so fired up. I listened to this podcast all of last year for the truth from someone I trust. I’m an RN and I’ve been seething about the politicization of everything around Covid. You are a true servant of the public. Many thanks. Vicki
