Or “The Cootie Shot” is not an effective Health Care treatment.

In this episode, Brogan and Bryan have special guest Erik Aliff to talk about steps you can take to keep yourself healthy at large events. We also talk about impacts of the CoronaVirus on Magic events. Please note, that while this episode was recorded on March 17th, the situation is rapidly changing in all directions. While editing it was a bit surreal how much had changed in just two to three days.
