Always nice to drop in on John Oliver when I get too optimistic about life.

Fun fact: Prairie Dogs have one of the most complicated systems of communication in the world, being able to remember individual people and consistently describe them to other Prairie Dogs in their group using features such as size; clothing, skin and hair color; and gender. There’s a large linguistics project exploring their communicative abilities, and some linguists argue that their “language” is the closest in nature to that of humans. They even have geosocial dialects.
I'm very sympathetic with the girl with NF1. Some people can be so thoughtless and hurtful. I admire the girl for coming forward and taking this opportunity to inform people about NF1.
So frustrating that we as a country are just so resistant to helping literally anyone, ourselves or other people. Had we given out those vaccines before they expired, we might not be experiencing this outbreak right now. And we will not learn from this.

That young lady with NF1 has been such an amazing ally and even though she was thrust into the public eye against her will and forced to reveal to everyone her private medical information, she's been strong throughout. I have lupus and get looks when I'm flaring up with contagious looking "rashes/lesions" on my face and body. I've heard people whisper comments and it hurts. I cannot image having someone publicly and ignorantly pointing out my lesions on social media.

Hey John,

It still amazes and saddens me that we get our truth from comedians such as John Oliver and Jon Stewart rather than government "officials" and our representatives who are to serve our best interests. Still, thank you Oliver, et al, for all you do. It's greatly appreciated.

"If we had an outbreak associated with bowling, would we not warn people to stop bowling?"
It was insanely ableist for this woman to be targeted for her illness (not to mention the issue of whether or not a coincidence that they felt comfortable targeting a woman of color in particular).

For a little historical perspective, I read how the eruption of Tambora in 1815 (the biggest of the millennium) caused changes in weather patterns globally, which then led to cholera pandemics over the next couple of decades. When cholera reached the British Isles, the aristocracy was at first unconcerned because it was only affecting poor Irish communities. It wasn’t until the disease began spreading to the aristocracy that the government began making an effort to help the people in general. This, iirc, would eventually lead to the establishment of the NHS in the UK.
I once witnessed two prairie dogs crossing a road and one was struck down. I watched as his companion dared traffic to seemingly rescue his unfortunate friend, dragging him to the side of the road like a scene from Saving Private Ryan! My heart was unbelievably touched and my eyes were full of tears, until he started munching on the other one like an AYCE buffet on Sunday after church!
"And it's just 1 of the 1 ways, the war on terror has made us safer" is a massively underrated joke
Great episode. I would like to see an episode on how adults with autism (even just level 1) are in danger of suicide and need help but are bullied and ignored. Do an inviisible disability episode. We are used to being ignored by healthcare, coworkers, friends, and family. We also have one of the highest suicide rates, yet no one talks about it. No one talks about how we are the only disability group where we are expected to change our disability instead of being provided with accommodations.

Fax machines are still huge in the medical and legal system because they insure a point to point communication. It is far more secure than an email.

Monkeypox should be extremely easy to stop: just apply the same restrictions we all had to endure to the venues and the groups spreading it.
This was incredibly helpful
Professor Gunter
I found the idea that "if bowling made you sick nobody would go bowling" ironic when the last 2 years have proven that yes people will still go bowling. Heck some will go bowling BECAUSE you said it'll make you sick

Your discussion of monkeypox was brilliant and inspired! I appreciate and applaud your sense of justice for all people. You consistently bring an intersectional lens to all the issues you present. I am an ordained Christian minister who believes that the core spiritual principle of most religions is compassion. I appreciate how you call us all from judgmental religiosity and immoral indifference to compassion and justice. My mother used to tell me that I was a "preacher and a comedian" because I intentionally integrate humor in my spiritual teachings as a way to open people's hearts and minds to be more receptive to loving challenge. I call you are a "comedian and a preacher" because of how you use humor to invite us to live by the spiritual principles of compassion, caring and justice. I have kept you in my prayers for many years and will continue to do so. Bless you.

Early stuff on on SARS-2 wasn't nearly as off the mark as he jokes about, it was actually an impressive gathering and promotion of the best available information, excluding of course all the made-up stuff not promoted by scientists or health authorities but random bloggers and vloggers, or the initial denial/cover-up from the country of origin and denying-president countries. Most stuff sort of still holds valid, with minor caveats.
