We Have Concerns

Blame the Bats, Man

Episode Summary

An episode wherein we conquer two of society's most nagging scientific questions: "Why do outbreaks always seem to come from bats?" and "Would you rather fight bats or ghosts?"

Episode Notes

A University of Saskatchewan (USask) research team has uncovered how bats can carry the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) coronavirus without getting sick—research that could shed light on how coronaviruses make the jump to humans and other animals.  Anthony and Jeff discuss why is could have been bats all along, and how we can get that menace out of all of our gotham cities.  Then, a 32-year-old marketer took sheltering in place to the next level when he became trapped in a California ghost town he recently purchased. The problem is: there’s no running water and a snowstorm has him trapped.  Jeff and Anthony decide whether they could be in a haunted place for weeks, and what the best price is for a 22 building sized town.
