This episode: Heritage Classic / Mitchell Blair / Hockey & Baseball Talk
Because ‘some’ of you have asked, there’s more of the banter between the boys today. However, we also have a great interview with CKRM Radio’s Mitchell Blair in Regina, talking about the Heritage classic this past weekend. Plus we veered into a discussion about how much Saskatchewan has contributed to the NHL, why they won’t ever get an NHL team, and the sensational season for the Green Riders. Plus the usual BS.

“We’ve turned into tribal, angry, vengeful people” Tim Robbins on how he moved through COVID to a new understanding
It’s truly remarkable how different sources of information have been leading most of the western world down two different paths, each getting further away from the other.
Most often we experience this ourselves in the way we interact with people differently since the beginning of the COVID pandemic. Those who rely most heavily on mainstream media for information form vastly different opinions from those who’ve moved on to alternative media sites and podcasts. Unfortunately the gulf between former friends, colleagues and often even family members has turned emotional, and visceral. Often relationships have broken down completely.
As time goes on and we approach the third Christmas season since the pandemic began, most people have remained embedded in their separate camps. Families and friendships remain divided. Something eerie lurks just off in the background as we approach the joyous Christmas holidays with more tension than we’d like to admit.
So it’s a joyous yet ominous feeling as we edge closer to holiday reunions with people we haven’t in many months, or even years now. Some will delicately and skillfully avoid serious conversation. Others will dabble in it and break it off as it becomes too uncomfortable. And some of us will surely be involved in legendary holiday blowouts that will drive this wedge even deeper.
Perhaps we need to take a trip to the United Kingdom. In this compelling segment of an interview between podcaster Russell Brand and Tim Robbins, the Academy Award winning actor describes how a trip to England resulted in a change in his outlook toward all the information dividing our “tribal” camps. As Robbins explains, in the UK there’s more “tolerant attitude towards the diversity of opinion” that seems to be sorely lacking in North America.

Why some Infectious Disease experts say COVID-19 will soon be behind us
The common belief seems to be the COVID19 pandemic is going to be with us at least until the end of this year and possibly well into 2022. But some infectious disease experts are making much more aggressive predictions. In fact Dr. Monica Gandhi (bio below) is already beaming with joy over the data pouring in showing the vaccines spreading throughout the world are working incredibly well. Enjoy this interview. It will absolutely help you feel better about the state of our battle against COVID-19.
A UCSF (University of California, San Francisco) infectious disease doctor is convinced this pandemic is ending, and sooner than you think…here’s why.
And here’s her latest study in the Lancet.
An excerpt from the following video: “So we have tons of PhD epidemiologists who are painting gloom and doom pictures everywhere. Well, you know, first it was this. And then, you know, okay, now we have a vaccine but you know what, the variants are coming. So we’re probably gonna have to wear seven masks and stay shut down. And by the way, don’t even think about opening schools. Why are you thinking about opening schools? Oh, by the way it’s your bad behavior that caused all this death, and so we’re gonna shame you. And on top of that, it’s never gonna get better. So expect 2023, before we get back to a semblance of what will be a new normal, which will be we’ll all be in bubbles. So get those guys out of the picture and go with actual physicians who touch patients. What’s your thinking right now? Where are we in this mess?
Dr. Gandhi: We are just facing like complete dawn of hope and light and love. Like it’s gonna be so great. It is getting so great. So what happened, right? Like March 11th was the day that the WHO declared this a worldwide pandemic. November 9th, we got the first press release from the first vaccine. Phase three clinical trial, that fast. And then we’ve had seven phase three clinical trials. So we have seven vaccines in circulation around the globe that work. And they work exactly using the same protein in different ways using that protein, and they work beautifully, and they all work beautifully against preventing what even made us notice on January 31st, 2019 or December 31st, 2019 that something terrible was happening, which is severe disease. They all work almost 100% to prevent… 100% for hospitalizations. And then like in the 90s to prevent you not even feeling well at home. So they’re amazing.”
