Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.
I have been a regular viewer of Glenn Loury podcasts with guest John McWhorter. These 2 Uni lecturers – ‘the black guys’ (as they call themselves) come from different sides of the political spectrum and approach issues from obtuse angles, but have a great chemistry and respect for each other. It boggles the mind how few views this video entices, yet Loury talks about how he was a crack-cocaine addict in his 20’s at 39.30 in the video below. They don’t have any pretences in how they present themselves or where they are at in their lives. It’s always a pleasure to watch them and this one is definitely in the ‘greatest hits category’.

I’m surprised I haven’t mentioned Dylan Moran more in this blog. I wrote about Dylan, at the beginning of last year who is one of my favourite here about a Black Books episode. I downloaded his comedy specials many moons ago and I could not begin to repay the debt the joy his insights brought to me. I hope you enjoy this short excerpt from one of those specials called Monster. (View the comedy skit here)
No Exceptions: A Story of Medical Tyranny in Australia
Video interview by Bret Weinstein
Betty Pezzimenti runs her own food truck and catering business (Melbourne, Australia). She is facing a vaccine mandate with which she can not comply for health reasons, and from which she cannot seem to get an exemption.
This video takes a a little while to get-going as young Betty discusses the specific nature of her allergies and medical history. If you can’t watch the whole interview then I recommend tuning into the extremely moving post-interview discussion which starts at 1:25:35 (Watch full video interview here)
