Episode #875: Third Wave
First Broadcast: 10/26/20
We recorded this episode before the last debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, so we couldn't really comment on that (sensing a theme). Instead, we discussed the latest number of states from which travelers to New York will need to quarantine when they arrive (43), and how that number would also include New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania if circumstances were different. We also talk about coronavirus cases increasing in almost every state in the union; how badly the U.S. botched its response to COVID-19; how this has all led up to a "third wave" of COVID infections in this country; how New Zealand did such a good job in contrast; whether the "Goldwater rule" should still be respected when a malignant narcissist is President; how 2020 feels so damn exhausting; and Morticia Addams! What? You can't expect us to be serious all the time...
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
