Guest Clifton Duncan was a star of the stage both on- and off-Broadway -- an extraordinary talent and man. Clifton refused to comply with Broadway’s Covid vaccine mandate in 2021 and was willing to walk away from his career rather than risk his health. He currently hosts the Clifton Duncan Podcast on art, culture and society.
Joining us at the beginning of the show were special guests - the parents of Baby Alex. After securing unvaccinated blood for their infant's needed transfusion, the staff at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane, Washington couldn’t “locate” this donation and gave Alex vaccinated blood. He sadly developed a blood clot and died twelve days later. You can support Alex’s mom and dad, Ron and Cornelia, here.
