Excellent podcast

Your interview about post vaccine epidemic was extremely helpful. I’m recommending your show to my family and friends. Thanks

TURN IT UP

I tried listening to this podcast in my car today. It is recorded at such a LOW volume I could not hear it at all while driving because ordinary road/engine noise drowned out the audio even with the volume all the way up. Ridiculous

Why did he pass on their prosecution? The money that was given to his campaign? You left out this part of story.
