A Few Good News Stories (ish) from the World News Center

Bill McCormick from the World News Center called in to share some good news-ish stories coming out of the coronavirus outbreak, and then told us about COVID-19 scams, FDA vaccine approval, CRISPR, seed banks, and a “good news flu.”

The All-New DIY T2 Kit

In this week’s visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick shared some exciting news of a medical breakthrough that will make my experimental lung brush invention immediately obsolete.  We also discussed irresponsible coronavirus-related “hacks,” the return of high-tar smokes and asbestos, assembling your very own T2, and why I’ll probably never beat the computer again by the time Madden NFL ’28 comes out.

Sewing Stringy Surgical Stitches From Sanitary Skin Cells

On this week’s episode, Bill McCormick and Ryan Gatenby begin with the latest coronavirus developments.  People are pretty nervous about it, so maybe playing coronavirus pranks in the name of social media fame might not be an awesome idea. Next is a discussion of a story on how yarn made from human skin could soon be stitching up wounds.  Plus: How to smoke 340 cigarettes a day, trying to cure the flu with sock potatoes, and Ryan becomes a J. Crew model.

Happy Fun Coronavirus Chat

On this week’s episode, Bill McCormick and Ryan Gatenby discuss the latest information available regarding the coronavirus crisis, including some of the myths involved (it has nothing to do with beer, it doesn’t turn itself away at a national border, and a football helmet face mask will not protect you).  Also: wash your bleeping hands, don’t inhale sneezes, and cocaine is not a coronavirus killer (nor does it turn all of the coronavirus’s bad feelings into good feelings).
