Ep 80: The Case Against Reopening

May 19, 2020
We discuss the news - there's so much of it and most of it is overwhelming and bad!

And then a conversation reopening the country, and the confusion and chaos we'll probably be trying to navigate for the next few months or years, who the eff knows...
