    Special Edition: Countdown to the Olympics

    We’re less than five weeks from the start of the summer Olympics in Tokyo. Organizers are trying to keep things safe by keeping strict rules in place. We’re talking about everything from daily COVID-19 testing to mandated mask-wearing and high-five bans.
    Today we’ll hear from the chief medical officer for U.S. Soccer, Dr. George Chiampas, who will be traveling to Japan. He spoke with our main host Erica Mandy about safety regulations and his own expectations ahead of the games.
    Then we’ll talk to skateboarding national champion Bryce Wettstein. This is actually the first time skateboarding has been included as an Olympic sport. She’ll talk about what this historic moment means to her and how the pandemic impacted her training.

The days headlines delivered quickly. A must listen.

Great antidote to the fear mongers

I love keeping up to date with what is happening in the world with this podcast. I get what I need in 10 mins, no high drama designed to trigger emotion and outrage. Just the key facts, without bias (as much as we humans can ever achieve at least). I don’t get sucked into a quagmire of misery designed to keep me watching or listening so no lost time. Thank you for being there with the info we need every day.

So much more to the story

There is so much more to the Fauci story than what was reported in today’s podcast, June 3. This is supposed to be a fair broadcast yet all of the information was not presented to the people. I have been listening to this podcast for years and have always given Erika credit for delivering both sides with fairness. Unfortunately, Erika is on maternity leave and her fill-in does not give the people the same courtesy.
