Fantastically informative podcast

Huge thanks to Vincent, the team and guests who put so much effort into this platform! I learn so much and find the discussion engaging. I’m a microbiologist but a bacterial specialist, but for the past decade I’ve gotten into bacteriophage research and now that’s my team’s focus (so I guess I’m a viral guy too now). I have learned a great deal from this podcast and have been led to a lot of super-informative papers by it. And gargantuan kudos for the way the podcast has addressed the COVID-19 pandemic! It’s been such an important service and I hope more and more folks are following!!

This show isJust another criminal arm of big pharma.

How can a person tell if someone is telling the truth or not? They discuss the entire realm of the results of the jab takers. These Fauci agents never discuss the 10’s of thousands of deaths from the jabs. They never discuss the millions of serious hospitalizations from the jabs. They never discuss the disabilities caused by the jabs. They never interview Sucharit Bhakdi, John O’Looney, Geert Vanden Bossche, Michael Yeadon, Roger Hodkinson, Wolfgang Wodarg, Suneel Dhand, Peter McCullough, Magnus Burling. These people pull back the curtain of Oz & expose big pharma’s criminality.
