GOTW Plague Tapes #52

Friday 3rd July 14:00hrs

Plague Tapes #52 is a long one with the standard format, of about an hour of good music, mostly beats, hip hop, and then a bit of wild guitar noise at the end.

We have an interview with Fin Dwyer, the historian behind the popular Irish History Podcast,  in order to get an historians point of view on the uncertain times that we all find ourselves in.

News with Andrew, we catch up with how the domestic battle against Covid 19 is going,  we correct our figures on confirmed new daily cases in the USA going over 40,000, and is over 50,000 again today.   We sketch out the dangers of not gettting quarantining on a more certain, statutory footing, given that the Civil service who were doing it have said that they will not be doing it anymore.   The casual nod and wink arrangment seems to be wonderfully illustrated in phase 43 with no enforcement  around our restaurant/pubs opening up and defying health and safety guidlines.   In Phase 3 we had the debacle around mask wearing on public transport, and how ill prepared or messaged that was.

We now sit and wait for the surge, and hope it’s not massive, before we get to Phase 4.

Love & Rage,

Dr. Groove
