COVID-19 is a threat. Yes, it's a very real disease that kills lots of people.
However, the government lockdowns and the related intrusions on civil liberties pose a serious threat not only to lives, but to civilization itself—a threat must be resisted.
At this juncture, the science is quite clear on what key policy responses should be—or should have been. But this is no longer about the science, if it ever was.
What is required now is a mobilization against what is essentially an enormous public relations machine that is fuelling fear and removing agency from people’s lives the world over.
Today's guest is Nick Hudson from PANDA (Pandemics ~ Data & Analytics). PANDA is a collective of leading scientists, actuaries, economists, data scientists, statisticians, medical professionals, lawyers, engineers and businesspeople working as a collective to replace bad science with good science.

We're going back to where we started on today's episode of The Brian Nichols Show, as today I am joined by the first "big guest" on the show (from way back from Episode 7 in Feb. 2018), Dean Clancy!
Dean returns to the show to discuss a venture he's been working on over the past few years, with the end goal of lowering the cost of healthcare.
Dean proposes that the best means to get the ball rollings is via "HSAs for All" which would "give every American access to affordable, high-quality health care by giving every American access to a tax-free Health Savings Account owned and controlled by the patient."
Listen as Dean outlines how an HSA model would work, the benefits of an HSA for All approach, how we actually go about implementing the proposal.

How about this, a Wednesday episode! You guys are lucky, let me tell you what! Well, actually, I'm pretty lucky, as today I was once again joined by someone infinitely smarter than I am, as I was joined by Dr. Kyle Varner to discuss the medical response to COVID-19 and some of the innovations that have risen in response to the pandemic.
Listen as we discuss some of the drugs leading the way to fight the coronavirus, the regulations that have held doctors back from properly treating their patients, and a look ahead to the future of medicine in a post-COVID world.
Bio: Dr. Kyle Varner is a practicing hospitalist and expert in health care policy. In his upcoming book, White Coat Cartels, Dr. Varner uncovers the dark side of the US healthcare market.
Dr. Varner passionately stands for freeing the market and advocates cash-based services and medical tourism as the prevailing alternatives to the compromised healthcare system we are faced with today.
He is a highly sought-after writer and speaker, and has spoken at a number of conferences around the world. He shares his insider’s knowledge on the website DrVarner.com to give people the tools they need to take back control of their lives and start making informed decisions about their health.
