26 Covid Delta Update – Boosters, Kiddos, and Sheep
Dr. Goldsmith comes on the pod to provide us an update on the state of this lovely pandemic, and why we can’t have nice things in general. Topics discussed include:* How the vaccine actually works, for people who’ve been hit in the head several times. * Home testing kits.* Boosters?* Why vaccinated people are like Anderson Silva (and unvaccinated people are Steven Seagal).* A prediction on when kids under 12 are actually going to get vaccinated.* An uncomfortable statistical analysis of the risk to children.* Bret Weinstein, the Darkhorse-Paste Podcast, the Intellectual Dark Web, and the Dunning-Kruger effect.

25 The Anime Episode with Gezere
Taking things down a notch and getting back to our roots, on this episode of the pod we feature the world’s toughest Otaku, black belt in half a dozen styles (including the ones that actually count), retired US Army officer, and Bullshido forums legend, “Gezere”, to discuss his role in popularizing Anime in the United States, and whatever the hell else he wants to talk about.
Some of you will remember him from the first ever Throwdown held on the East coast back in 2002. Others, from the forums as “Lord Asia” and a few other handles.
Bottom, center-right, delivering a lethal strike to Omega’s… omega.

24 Covid Lab Leak Origin Theory
The possibility of a man-made origin for the Coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2 responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic has all the usual conspiracy theorist suspects and even a handful of credible intellectuals furiously arguing back and forth these days.
Immunologist Dr. Jason Goldsmith comes on the pod to explain all the origin scenarios, and more importantly, what can actually be done about the problem if Covid really was the result of either negligence or maleficence on the part of a Chinese laboratory or the government overseeing it.

23 Mass Violence and Bad Active Shooter Training
The global Coronavirus pandemic has had the secondary effect of reducing incidents of school and workplace violence, especially shootings. But as the deployment of vaccines and recent shifts in policy prove likely to get the virus under control, something resembling the previous “normal” finally seems to be on the horizon. Unfortunately, the occasional mass shooting was also a part of that condition of normality.
Morgan Ballis, an expert on mass violence, comes on the episode to explain how and why much of the so-called “Active Shooter” training taught in workplaces and schools is of dangerously low-quality, and how to address that problem.
Morgan is an emergency management consultant, Marine infantry veteran, and nationally recognized firearms instructor currently pursuing his PhD in active assailant preparedness and risk perception. You can find his website and organization, the Campus Safety Alliance here.
