It’s a pandemic and Fox News is killing its viewers. Here’s a little video about what NOT to do.

A lot has happened in the presidential race. Sean and Kevin will talk about where things are in the Democratic primary and what the way forward looks like. 

Gov. Wolf orders significant closures in Montgomery County after the number of cases in the county jumped to 13. If you have to stay home from work due to the coronavirus, will you be paid if you live in PA? Not unless you live in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh. Google tells all its employees home to telecommute. But if you are a contract worker for Google in Pittsburgh and around the world, you better get your ass to work

And heads up everybody, Milton Friedman’s disciples are chomping at the bit…never let a good crisis go to waste, right? And as Mark Huelsman wrote in Inside Higher Ed, public universities may not be able to handle the impact of the coronavirus crisis. And as our own PASSHE universities close and move to all-online instruction due to the coronavirus, the for-profit “curriculum delivery services” are going to be like vultures over roadkill. 

In today’s last call, Kevin has the latest on Free Will releases and looks back to a big release day last weekend. This weekend it’s Safeword – Imperial IPA with mangoes and habaneros, hopped with Citra, Simcoe, and Chinook. 10.2% ABV⁣. Last weekend it was Orange Colored Malcontent, Sun Servants, and The Truth About Birds

Right before Kevin’s spring break, he paid a visit to Saucony Creek Brewing in Kutztown and stocked up. He’ll give you the lowdown on Unicorn Hazed and Confused, So Hot Right Now, Tears of the Squonk, and Topaz Rain, Unfortunately, he was one day early for their latest release of Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter. It looks amazing.
