TheESP – Ep. #279 – On the Ark to Nowhere

Download

This week summer is here (but András is not) and we get a tip from Bob on about good vaccine tracker. Blaise Pascal was born almost 400 years ago this week (how times fly) and Pope Francis gives Cardinal Marx some good PR while proving he still knows how to play the dictator card. Then we dive into the news:

  • ‘Unseaworthy’ Noah’s Ark replica detained at Ipswich Waterfront
  • Waldorf / Steiner school scandal in Sweden
  • New law against ‘promotion of homosexuality’
  • Follow-up: Doctor behind fake covid-19 tests and travelers’ certificates to stand trial

To round off, a gross pseudotreatment for babies gets the prize for being Really Wrong.

Enjoy!
