    Everyone on this podcast apart from Abe drives me nuts at least once a week, but for some reason I just can’t stop listening.  Not sure if this is more to their credit or mine.  At least no one can say I only listen to people I agree with.

    I love this show, but perhaps because of the high level of discourse, I find that little errors like John saying that schools were “literally playing ping-pong with these kids” annoys me more than it would otherwise.

    CDC’s excess death chart as of 1/15/22 https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_deaths.htm

    Select the with and without Covid for their estimate. The absolute numbers are on decline and don’t support 3,000 current fatalities from Covid.

    I have the same experience! I listen regularly, but I routinely want to smack one of them for being either wrong or smugly condescending, yet I keep coming back. I think perhaps it’s the combination of them and their general geniality with each other while disagreeing substantially enough that I never want to smack more than one of them at any given time (and never Christine or Abe).

    So by “them” you mean Pod, right?

    It’s always Pod. ALWAYS.
