This week I talk about how effective Covid is at determining whether a person is an aware, empathetic member of society or a toddler. Since the virus is still very unpredictable, none of us know if we could possibly die if we get it. So when someone successfully fights off the Coronavirus, there’s a sense of relief.

But unfortunately, there are A LOT of Covid survivors out there that don’t pass the …

I begin the show with an interesting realization that my birthday has always been on Juneteenth. Now, I had an idea what that day was but for 55 years really didn’t absorb it until the past few weeks of protests and Black Lives Matter successfully expanded my clarity on the issue…so…that’s pretty cool… Happy Juneteenth! Then I dive deep into the current controversy of wearing a mask in public to help in preventing the spread …
