“We’re in epidemiological limbo.” 👻

On this week’s episode: we celebrate the first instance of actual legal accountability for the disgraced former president; what it means and doesn’t mean that the WHO ended the Covid-19 emergency declaration; how the name David illustrates the absurd level of gender inequality in business; white supremacists’ shocking (how are we still shocked?) and gruesome love affair with a murderous dictator; and how kindness cuts through all the bullshit.
