    In our second hour, we were joined for the first time by Marshall Auerback to review the efficacy of different countries' approaches to ameliorating the pandemic and looked at where the global economy is headed and what we should expect.

    In our third hour, we spoke with Daniel McAdams about Trump's executive order on social media, what caused it and what it contains, and what it might spell for social media tech giant's notorious roles as editorial agents for public opinion. After we were joined by Danny Haiphong to talk about Hong Kong and China, how COVID has affected the protests, and what recent events reveal about the relationship between the United States and China.
