It’s a new year and a new episode of Weird Things. COVID-19 vaccines are rolling out and we dissect some of the attitudes and policies that got us here. Would it be ethical to cut costs and only give people a single-shot dose instead of two? What would it look like if people faked fake-immunization badges and cards? It get’s a little fiery, but we’re all friends and had a good conversation! Got something weird? Email neshcom@gmail.com, subject line “Weird Things.”

Picks:

Andrew: Apple Watch Solo Loop and The Expanse

Brian: The Abyss

Bryce: Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time
