Today’s podcast takes up the fact (as detailed in a chart made by David Bahnsen for his indispensable website Covid and Markets) that deaths and ICU admissions in this supposed dangerous new wave of Covid cases simply don’t track with the crisis numbers of a few months ago—something undiscussed in the press. Also, why spend on college when there’s no college? Give a listen. Don’t forget to subscribe to our podcast on here, iTunes, or Stitcher.

    For about the last week the Commentary podcasts stop about every 9 minutes or so. I have to refresh and then try to pick up at about the time when the podcast quit working. So I wind up having to refresh about 7 or 8 times just to complete the podcast.

    I thought this was only happening to me but GeezerBob also mentioned this. Anyone know what’s wrong?

    I don’t know what is wrong, but I’ve had the same problem.

    I just download the podcast and listen to it straight through.

    I haven’t looked at the COVID death numbers, but I wonder if you leave the anew York numbers out of the mix, are the numbers rising overall for everywhere else? My husband follows Utah numbers—which are very low—but they are inching up.

    This was happening to me when I listened via Ricochet. I go directly to Commentary’s website and listen from there with no problems.
