Well done and very interesting.

The Future of Epidemic episode is C.D.C. & W.H.O. Propaganda
Vaccines and GMOs and Pesticides are weakening peoples' immune systems. Getting the flu is the only thing that will actually inoculate people from the flu. There are so many amazing podcast series out there for how to stay healthy such as Wise Traditions, Revolution Health Radio, 30/30Strong, A Medicinal Mind, The Healthy Mom's Podcast, and Mastering Nutrition. If this is a topic of interest to you, check these out!
The episode on Aging was a bit interesting, not riveting by any means. The episode on the future of the workforce was a bit stuck in the past for most of it (boring). I won't be subscribing to this channel.
