Am I the only one that has only had the first two covid shots, felt fine, never had the boosters, and never had covid? Been to Disney World unmasked and no hand sanitizer as well.

While we've had all the covid shots, we also haven't had covid. Glad to hear you haven't had it either. Let's hope we're not jinxing ourselves!

I love that the Japanese on this podcast art does translate to "shoes are tight." Good on Krazy Kernal for making it authentic Japanese.
