The Waffle House vaccine interview video is out. In a week when the vaccine is rolling out all over the country, I like to think it’s a nice contribution to our understanding of how Americans are thinking. The Waffle House was just off the interstate 100 miles north of Atlanta. Wide range of perspectives. Please check it out, and subscribe to the channel!
“One thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you…All you need to do is to be curious, receptive, eager for experience. And there's one strange thing: when you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.” — Eleanor Roosevelt, 1960
