Living with the Wuhan Corona Virus • Plagues of Today & the Past • Brexit Ho!

January 30, 2020

Join American Bill Poorman and Dutchman Nikolaj Groeneweg, living in Asia, as they take you on a humorously serious and seriously humorous romp through the week's international news! This week we have a special focus on the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak:

  • The novel coronavirus out of Wuhan, China continues to spread, and all Bill wants is an antibacterial wipe for his phone
  • Keeping a proper assessment of risk in your head is really hard
  • The animals don't ask to be eaten
  • Diseases have shaped human history
  • China has imposed quarantines of cities equalling entire countries
  • And our twisted take on happy news - Brexit is finally here!
