EP30: The Pandemic Minute

EP30: The Pandemic Minute

Thanks for listening to the Junto Show!

Feb 3, 2018

The “Junto” is a club Benjamin Franklin founded way back when America was Great. The purpose of the Junto was to debate questions of morals, politics, and natural philosophy.  Our show’s not quite that stuffy, but here and there we stumble upon something profound between the geeky jokes.

The Junto Show is three friends, one black, one white, and one asian who get together and discuss the news of the day, leadership, pop culture, and whatever else comes to mind.  We bring our unique perspectives to the table and hash it all out.

In today’s show we Cover the following topics:

We have a skeleton crew this episode with just Lance and our Guest Host – Chris (a different one)

  • Hot Take News (00:05:00)
