Let's Call Them "Right to Life" or "Freedom" Passports!
Will America hold Trump & his enablers accountable for 400,000 unnecessary deaths? Is this manslaughter, now that Trump brags that he actively ignored the scientific advice?

Best learning experience ever
I love Thom Hartmann and this is a great focus, as he really knows the science but also how to communicate it. I subscribe to more tHan a dozen podcasts but this is the one I listen to as soon as a new one is up.
A little embarassing
Data lite and bias heavy. It's like dozens of NPR podcasts. If you're far left and want to be affirmed, don't want to be bothered by facts, this is one of your podcasts (along with about 40 others).
Thom is the best thing on the airwaves. A wealth of knowledge.
