Ep. 84: Third Times The Plague

Episode 84 of the NonProphets podcast, in which Atief, Robert, and Scott discuss the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The podcast begins with an inside view of the Good Judgment / Open Philanthropy public site where forecasts and analysis of where the US and the world will be in one year are discussed. Atief's view from the heartland (Missouri) (4:50), Scott's view of the Romanian response and Robert's perspective on Hawaii, contrast how the disease is progressing and how disparate governments and cultures are responding. Travel restrictions (20:00) and stay at home orders are being implemented, but how are they received? The moral question of whether to send or not to send whiskey to a friend during an epidemic is broached. A wager (45:55) on who will get the virus first wraps up this episode.
