Singapore Circuit Breaker • On the Ground in Detroit with Covid-19 • Good News

April 8, 2020

It's the Foreign Influence Podcast, in which American Bill Poorman and Dutchman Nikolaj Groeneweg - in defiance of all things corona - take you on a humorously serious and seriously humorous romp through the week's international events! This week:

• Singapore has at last joined much of the rest of the world in lockdown, or as they're calling it here, "circuit breaker".

• A conversation with Keith Mernovage from Detroit, Michigan, USA. We got to know Keith here in Sunny Singapore, but he moved back to Detroit, which is rapidly become the next covid-19 outbreak hotspot in the US. 

• And as we always do, some good news. This time, a website recommendation. 

Thanks for listening!

Be safe, don't panic, and flatten that curve with social distancing. Modern medicine is working hard to catch up!
