Coronavirus has a New York accent

Dear Friends,

We’ve had a lot of high-profile guests on the Fallon Forum over the years: Tulsi Gabbard, Tom Steyer, Dolores Huerta, Leonard Pitts, Robert Reich. But this week’s guest is, well, in a celebrity class that trumps all others. Here’s my interview with … Cory the Coronavirus:

An Interview with Coronavirus

Ever wonder what Coronavirus has to say about COVID-19? We interviewed them to find out. President Trump, you need to watch and learn. #Coronavirus #COVID19

If you’d like to hear the conversation free of the distraction of that crazy corona costume, click here for the podcast.

Also on this week’s program, Ed the Omnivore talks with Margeaux Spain of Plant Fueled Passion, and lo and behold … we find we have a lot more in common than we have differences.

We also hear from Lee Camp about voter suppression. Yeah, it’s getting worse. Nearly 17 million Americans were recently purged from the voter rolls — and that’s just allegedly for changing addresses. This is a huge problem, and one of Lee’s questions is well worth asking: Why isn’t the Democratic Party raising all sorts of holy heck about it!?

Finally, Kathy Byrnes with Birds & Bees Urban Farm joins us as we answer some of the many questions we’re hearing about that gardening this time of year. If you’ve got a question, send it my way and we may tackle it in next week’s broadcast.

Here are the time stamps for this week’s program:

(01:46) Plant Fueled Passion, with Margeaux Spain;
(21:47) Voter suppression, with Lee Camp;
(34:27) Cory the Coronavirus;
