The COVID-19 vaccine started being distributed in December and frontline healthcare workers and senior citizens are among the first to receive it. Gus invites listeners who've received it to call in and he also invites people to call in who don't wish to receive it.
Also, Jim Olson calls in to the show to talk about his lastest book "To Catch a Spy: The Art of Counterintelligence." Jim is a retired CIA agent and a lifelong practicing Catholic. In addition to go over the nuts and bolts of his unique profession, he shares with Gus how he balanced essentially lying and manipulating for a living while being a faith-filled, honorable Catholic. Jim wrote about this topic in his earlier book "Fair Play: The Moral Dilemmas of Spying."
Going into his conversation with Jim Olson, Gus tells him that espionage is one of his favorite literary genres so he invites listeners to call in and hare what kind of books they enjoy reading.
And since the show was off yesterday in observance of the MLK holiday, Gus does a little Tell Me Something Good with listeners.
Frustrated in Tennessee! 85 year old mother unable to get an appointment for vaccine thus far. She is supposedly on the waitlist but thinking that her age should put her before those in 65-75 age group. Very much fear that there are many older people who are getting left behind.
