Trojan Horse is an Incredible Experience

I’m still in the middle of Trojan Horse, and it’s incredibly beautiful storytelling. The two journalists are building a friendship as well as a story, and it’s fascinating and entertaining to hear. As a teacher in the US, I understand a little of the frustration when others make assumptions without evidence, although I was also surprised that the UK schools require a daily worship experience!
I was disappointed, but not shocked, to read the number of lazy, entitled reviews of this podcast. If you’re planning to write a review, please google what that is! Nothing is going to be perfectly suited to your exact specifications, and no storyteller is going to change themselves for you. If the podcast isn’t for you, try mentioning some quirks that will help others decide to watch or not. Your over sensitivity to ideas that aren’t limited to your tiny box are unimportant.

Never Again

I am so grateful to scroll through these reviews and see that many many others are calling out the absolute trash that is “We were three”. What a joke. The lengths that this story goes to propagate and prop up the COVId narrative is nauseating. I feel for Rachel and both Peters but how their tragic story is used here to milk, once again, so many of the old stand by tropes is sad. No evidence for Ivermectin? Seriously? It’s 2022 folks… and not a mention (again it’s the end of 2022) of the absolute irrelevance of
Vaccines when it comes to COVId outcomes. I stopped listening to NPR and reading the NYT a long time ago… saw a new season of Serial and thought… maybe this will be good.
Never Again.

Covid Garbage

I can’t even listen to We Were Three. I sure hope they come out with an update to apologize and correct their blatantly false statements. Remdesivir kills people. We KNOW that now. Ivermectin DOES work. We know that now. The vaccine DOES shed. The vaccine DOES NOT stop anything. I am soooo disappointed in this.
