The Matt McNeil Show – October 8, 2021

Hour 1 segment 1: Whoever painted the lines on the biking/walking path at Victory Memorial Park failed miserably. Medtronic issues an ‘urgent’ recall of insulin pump remote controllers vulnerable to hacks. The MN COVID-19 update.

Hour 1 segment 2: The University of Minnesota’s vaccine mandate takes effect today. And nursing homes in Minnesota continue to see worker shortages. And how some greedy corporations still refuse to pay their front line employees a living wage.

Hour 1 segment 3: New data shows that only 2 percent of state workers refused to get vaccinated or do weekly testing, undercutting the Republican argument that vaccine mandates will lead to mass resignations. And 55-60 % percent of COVID deaths are occurring outside the metro, even though the metro makes up about 55 percent of the population.

Hour 1 segment 4: Outstate Minnesota is more dangerous than the metro due to the unvaccinated and anti-maskers.

Hour 2 segment 1: UPDATE: The walking/biking path line we talked about in hour 1 is getting repaved. And an Idaho county wants to bill Mike Lindell for costs of conducting an audit of 2020 election results when they found no evidence of fraud even though Lindell claimed Idaho had election fraud. Also Salon reports Mike Lindell’s new genius plan: Knock on your door and ask whether you’re dead.

Hour 2 segments 2/3: We go lighter the rest of the hour and talk about No Time to Die and other James Bond movies, best bond themes and best bond movies.
