American Bill Poorman and Dutchman Nikolaj Groeneweg, both living in Asia, take you on a humorously serious and seriously humorous romp through the week's international news! This week, a special focus on the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak:

  • The novel coronavirus out of Wuhan, China continues to spread, and all Bill wants is an antibacterial wipe for his phone

  • Keeping a proper assessment of risk in your head is really hard

  • The animals don't ask to be eaten

  • Diseases have shaped human history

  • China has imposed quarantines of cities equalling entire countries

  • And our twisted take on happy news - Brexit is finally here!
