  • Going to weigh in on the mask issue...  The reason why masks, in general, aren't usually recommended are 1) user error with the surgical masks and 2) the N95 masks (the ones with the vents) are usually overkill.  Unless we live in a densely populate…
  • Friendly neighborhood epidemiologist here...  I teach infectious disease epidemiology so I have been following this from the jump.  Until today, I really haven't been all that concerned. 70k cases in a country with one billion people and cities with…
  • rjodierna said: A. Ron.  Watch And the Band Played On on HBO.   Based on a book, an HBO movie from before hbo was hbo.  It’s takes you through the early days of the AIDS crisis in a very compelling way.   Yes! This movie is why I am an epidemiolo…
  • @Murderbear Thought I was crazy for wondering why all the hate. Glad someone else is on the same page.
  • Need to discuss the Aron and Cecily's take on the ending.  There be spoilers below. On Bald Move TV, they said it was lazy writing, but I thought Madeline and Dr. Rawls' stories contradicted!  She said Mama Butcher had a miscarriage and he said he …
  • Episode 2 is available... [Spoilers is you haven’t watched!!!].  https://m.imgur.com/a/dSYAaEb?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app “Anyway, here’s Wonderwall”
  • Grey worm and/or Missandei are not long for this world. Never make plans... that scene was the horror movie equivalent of saying “I’ll be right back.”
  • The conversation between the Hound and Tormund on the walk to get the wight.  If they live, I want a Westerosi odd couple spin-off.  
  • Anyone else have DirecTV and have their DVR cut off the last 20 minutes? Finally got around to watching and was like, wait, wha!? Where is this GoT-esque episode I kept hearing about? 
  • I was thinking that LCK finished pretty early too, but I am guessing it would have been crazy expensive to bring the lot of them to Macau. Guessing the rest of the cheftestants won't be serving as sous chefs either.   I was ridiculously sad to see …
  • I live on the New Madrid Fault, similarly thought to be overdue for a shake, and have already been through one disaster (front row seat for 9/11).  My biggest fear is that the NM seismic zone goes while I am living here.  Think I might skip this pod…
  • I am actually epidemiologist and this is quite possibly my favorite thing I have ever read in academia. I might need to assign this as a reading in one of my classes.  The analyses are really well done.   And can I just point out Table 2 "Crushing …
  • hisdudeness915 said: The best advice I can give anyone watching The Wire is to have faith. You have to put your trust and faith in David Simon. If at any time you’re thinking “Wtf does this have to with anything?” Just go with it and all will…
  • I really liked it too.  Same opinions of the books too; loved the first, second was good, but liked first much better, but still haven't had the time to get through the third.   No golden age of TV or anything but really entertaining, especially fo…
  • I grew up solid upper lower class so I tend to hoard things, clothes especially.  I haven't even seen the show or read her book, but because of her being EVERYWHERE lately, I have been culling like a madwoman.   So people who have watched this show…
  • MrX said: I also really liked the Voltaggio bros season. Although since then it's come out that Isabella is a dirtbag. I remember Season 4 being really good, with Stephanie Izard and Richard Blais (and also Antonia). I didn't like Isabell…

  • Adding a few that I can't believe I haven't seen here yet: Caliphate: NY Times investigative journalist talking about the rise of ISIS, interviewing a Canadian man who joined ISIS, SO good.  In the Dark: Two seasons.  Season 1 is about a Jacob Wet…
  • From the back, Mike looks like one of those hairless cats. I realize this isn’t some profound observation, but I am watching alone and have no one else to share this with at the moment.
  • #whatthefuckchuck? Didn’t see that coming.
  • No real insights just wondering if anyone else sat down with the intention of watching the one episode to get ready for the podcast and wound up binging six episodes? And there went my weekend...
  • Wanted to second the views from the Manitou Incline. Absolutely amazing but holy hell what a climb. Especially if you are from sea level or close to. I’m in really good shape (regular cross-fitter, runner, etc.) and I was like, wow, ok, I could be d…
  • @kingbee67 Another quote that is a little more in line with the plot “Look at the facts. Very high powered. Portable. Limited firing time, unlimited range. All you's need is a tracking system and a, a large spinning mirror and you can vaporize a h…
