Looking for positive covid news • Doom and gloom around Taiwan and East Asia • The endless search for good news

September 7, 2021

It's the Foreign Influence Podcast, with American Bill Poorman and Dutchman Nikolaj Groeneweg taking you on a humorously serious and seriously humorous romp through international events. This time: 

• Searching for good news, we find a country that has achieved top-level vaccination rates. Only to not open up again!

• Learning to live with covid.

• Afghanistan is bad, but don't lose sight of how bad it could get in East Asia.

• For crying out loud, we needed more good news. Your computer might - maybe, just maybe - be making you a bit richer on paper!

Thanks for listening! 🙏🏻
