Thursday, 7 May
On the Gist, the new White House Press Secretary reiterates that the media sometimes gets it wrong.
In the first half of this two-part interview, Mike talks with Dr. Nina Fefferman from the University of Tennessee Knoxville about predictive modeling and the Covid-19 crisis.

In the spiel, a canadian kerfuffle but with license plates.
