A highlight from Dr. Susie Reilly: "Let's Sell Our House, Retire, and Buy More Bitcoin"
"So did you actually have a conversation with your husband at one point and say, you know what, we should sell our house and put all of that money into Bitcoin? Yes. I did. How did that go? Welcome to the Coin Stories podcast, where we talk about investing, hard money, Bitcoin, and how technology is revolutionizing the global economy. I'm Natalie Brunell, and I'm here to learn with you. So this is for educational and entertainment purposes only, none of the discussions should constitute as official investment advice, and you should always do your own research. Make sure you're subscribed to my page so you don't miss out on any new content. This show is made possible through partnerships with companies I trust, and I'm very picky about who I partner with, so I hope you take the time to listen to the ad reads throughout the show. First up, Swan. I partnered with Swan because it is a Bitcoin -only company that is focused on helping people save for their future and self -custody their Bitcoin.

I'm so proud to call Dr. Susie Riley a friend, and you have to follow her on Twitter X, whatever you call it, because she has one of the funniest pages out there. Susie, thanks so much for joining me on the show. No, thanks so much for having me, Nat. I'm excited to be here and thankful to call you my friend as well. Well, I'm so excited to hear your Bitcoin journey because you have such an interesting backstory. A career dentist, retired recently. You have a clinic in El Zante I want to talk to you about, but let's just start from the very beginning. Where are you originally from? Tell me a little bit about your career in dentistry and how you got into Bitcoin. I grew up in San Francisco and then went to Ohio State for dental school where I met my husband. We settled on Atlanta to practice dentistry together, bought a practice there in 1998. And I've practiced until this year. Sold our practice and have retired to Hawaii. Along the way in 2018 is when I first started purchasing Bitcoin. My teen son at the time asked me to buy it. I just did it to appease him. It wasn't something that I studied or believed in at all. But that has led me down like so many Bitcoiners, just many rabbit holes. And I think it really changed how my husband and I saw our careers. We loved dentistry. We were incredibly successful, had all of the trappings of success, but Bitcoin made us realize that those trappings that we enjoyed, our cars, our homes, all of vacations, felt like traps. They no longer felt like a reward anymore. And so we started in 2021 looking at selling everything and trading our time for freedom instead of the up. Wow. OK. I want to dig into a little bit more of that because one of the things that amazed me is when you told me at one point that you sold your house to buy Bitcoin. So before we get there, let's just talk a little bit more about money. I mean, growing up, did you choose dentistry because it was going to potentially bring you financial stability, something that looked like it was going to be lucrative? Tell me a little bit about kind of your back story with money. So I didn't go into college thinking that I would be a dentist. In fact, it seemed like a disgusting career to me. I wanted to go into academia. I loved research. I loved publishing. But one of the grad students in our lab, his father was a dentist. He had a standing Friday date with him since dentists don't work on Friday generally. And he would tease me and say, this is a horrible idea for you to go into academia. I think. And I'd say, what do you think I should do, Dr. Kevin? You should be a dentist, which again, I just I couldn't imagine doing that. But he had me interned in his office and he was this beloved character. He had a great lifestyle. He lived a beautiful, beautiful family, family man, and it sold me. So I went all in knowing that I've always wanted a lot of kids. And so I then went to Ohio State for dental school, met my husband. We have four beautiful children and we practiced for 26 years together. Well, I mean, you have what so many people strive for, what they dream of, but you mentioned that it felt like trappings, like you were trapped by some of those things. So let's let's kind of dig into that a little bit more. I mean, having all of these things, especially being able to maybe afford the nice house, the nice car vacation, why did it feel like you weren't fully in the in the value of freedom and living out in a free sovereign way? Well, I think that when first of all, as a woman and a mom, a working mom, you always feel like you're never doing enough. I think when I was giving fully to my kids, I felt like I was neglecting my, you know, especially when you're a business owner, I'm like, oh, I'm neglecting running the business. When I would pour more time into the business, I definitely felt a lot of mom guilt about I wasn't giving to my kids the way I wanted to. So I think you're always balancing that, which is tough as a woman. And then so many times it's no matter how much we made over the years, we built this little practice to get this huge practice, very successful. But no matter how much we made, we somehow found a way to spend it. And, you know, we went to the bigger house we get. So it did begin to feel like it was this hamster wheel that we were constantly, you know, just we were working so hard that we wanted to reward ourselves. And so it'd be like we'd go on a bigger vacation, we'd get the fancier car, oh, we need another home. And you when look at it as a big winner, it starts to feel like this is a trap. This is what they want from us is to work harder and to just keep the system going. Did you notice just prices going up, especially in sort of those more scarce assets like real estate? I mean, I'm thinking about just the conversation that a lot of people are having this week about Paul Krugman saying, oh, we should move the inflation target to 3%. Yes. I feel like so many people, we don't study the financial system at a young age to be able to question something like the inflation rate. Did you kind of notice, oh, things are getting more expensive, but I can keep up? I think for me, and I think this is a lot of people, and it's sort of a shame to say it, again, as a business person that I thought I was educated, I thought I understood the financial system, but I really thought inflation is natural. Of course, things get more expensive over time. Of course, a soft drink costs 25 cents when our parents were young and it's $1 .50. I thought that it's just the way things are. I didn't question it. I didn't question fractional reserve banking. I thought the Fed was a government entity. I knew the dollar wasn't backed by gold, but I didn't realize it was backed by no gold. There's so many things that I didn't understand and just thought, why should I study that? I'm successful. I think that's by design. I think we're kept in the dark. I think it's meant to be that we're not supposed to understand. Even talking to so many of my normie friends now or my dentist friends now, if they're doing okay, they don't care to learn. It's like, it'll all be fine. That meme about it's fine, I hear it all the time. Why are you worrying about this? It always ends up fine. In order to preserve your wealth, were you investing essentially in real estate before and maybe a stock portfolio or how were you seeing that ability to plan for your kids to hopefully have some sort of a safety net and be able to take care of their needs into the future? Yeah. I mean, absolutely just pretty traditional stock portfolio. We had a wealth manager. We had commercial real estate, tried to always have some passive investment. We owned our building for our practice, all these things and did well. But when Tesla made the announcement in 2021 about that they had acquired Bitcoin, when that came out, my stupid little Bitcoin on my phone, rainy day that I would sock away a little bit, I looked at it and I was like, holy cow, my nothing investment that I really didn't pay attention to was now a significant amount of money and had outperformed everything else that I had invested in. And that's when, of course, I started to see Bitcoin differently. To me, it became, oh, this is something that people can get rich on. I think that's the first thought that comes to your head. So I went full, I'm going to invest in altcoins. I'm going to find the next Bitcoin again. I believed in all of those fallacies and I went full altcoin investing. I took trading classes, all those things. Oh, wow. Yeah. And did well, but it was a maxi on Twitter, a toxic maxi on Twitter. I just started to get on to Twitter in 2020. I'd been on for a long time, just not active. And it was a toxic maxi who told me I'm an idiot and that I knew nothing about Bitcoin. And here I was, I'm like, well, I'm going to be retiring from my Bitcoin holdings. And he's like, I'm not even talking to you about it until you read one book. You've obviously read nothing. And that was for me, of course, I had many people tell me, you need to study Bitcoin. You need to read more. You need to, and I was like, I'm watching YouTube videos. I need, I know all I need to know, but getting me where it hurt most, my ego, that is what caused me to really read the Bitcoin standard and it opened my eyes to everything. Same here. Thank you, Safedine. Yeah, Safedine changed my life too. Wait, so, okay. It was your son who first told you about Bitcoin. How did he know about it? And did you, I mean, you clearly had a journey, right? It's like, no, this isn't a thing. I'm skeptical. Yes, maybe it's a thing. I'm going to invest a little, but also venture out into all these other cryptocurrencies. Oh, no, this is the only, the real one that I should be relying on that has the properties of money. Can you talk about sort of that journey and how, how your son discovered it? Yeah, so my son, like most teenagers, you know, his age was 16, 17 at the time were gaming. And so a lot of these young guys would talk about Bitcoin. And so, I mean, he came to me and he was like, you need to put, you need to buy, you know, 10 ,000 And was I absolutely not. And, but he didn't let up. I mean, it must've been six, seven months. And eventually he put an app on my phone. It makes me laugh. It was called Coin Mama. And he was like, my mama, I don't even, I keep meaning to look if it's still around, but it's, that's where I got my first Bitcoin. And so, and I only did it because he installed it on my phone and it was too, he was relentless. So I, it was to shut him up. What year was this and how old was he? 2018, 17. And so, wow. Yeah. And, and so I think my first buy was $20 of Bitcoin. And then, and again, it wasn't, I genuinely believe this was something that criminals use, that it was dark web stuff that I didn't want anything to do with it. So I didn't look into it. I was, it was an easy buy on my phone. And so, but then I would kind of, I never really paid attention to news stories or anything like that. I would just, but if I didn't go to Starbucks that weren't that week or, Oh, I didn't, you know, get my hair cut or I'm just going to buy some Bitcoin this week. So I was buying like little $20 here, $10 there for, you know, three years. Wow. Okay. So, I mean, for you to go from kind of, you know, dipping your toe in, buying it here and there in, in place of what you might spend on a coffee to actually selling your home and putting it into Bitcoin, how did, how did you get to that level of conviction that this is something that's here to stay and it is the best investment I could possibly make? It really went, to me, the difference between crypto investors and Bitcoiners is Bitcoiners are always so well read and they study so much. And my life motto is to always be in this drunk environment around people smarter than me. And when I kept hearing from these people were smarter than me, this is what I believe in. You know, I mean, there's people, you pest a fish, James Lavish, so many of these people, Jeff Booth, you know, that I'm like, I look up to them so much and they put their money where their mouth is. And then I would study a little more and I'd read a book that they'd recommend and I'd, you know, learn a little more, something, some light bulb would go on and you know, things like, my real estate holdings, they've done well, but they didn't do as well as my Bitcoin. It was, and then when I say, oh, yeah, this inflation isn't natural. These things are, yes, it looks like it's, my homes are worth so much more, but it's really the money is worth that much less. There's such a shift when you study and you're not all about the money that you realize things are so broken and it makes you want to do something to help change the system. Well, you know, I'm curious because I totally agree with the people that have sort of made it in the fiat sense and they're doing okay financially. They probably don't have a reason to question the system that's working for them. But why do you think that we're having such a tough time breaking through to the normies and really getting a significant amount of the working class that is really struggling with the disadvantages of the current system and with inflation? Why aren't they taking a look at this as an alternative just in coming to it in droves? Well, I think when Bitcoin is doing well, I know my experiences at my phone, text messages, email is blowing up like in 21. I had everybody just so excited about Bitcoin and crypto at the time as well. Like, you know, everyone was ready to put their jobs and become full time traders. It seems like you could do no wrong. But I know since then, like there are some members of my family who are late 21, they were ready to invest a significant amount into Bitcoin. And then it's these terrible, you know, FBS and no plan and all these things. They hear these things and they just don't trust it. It sounds like some it sounds like a scam to them. And I think, again, that's intentional to have all of these things seem like they're Bitcoin. And it scares people off, especially like my parents generation. It's terrifying. Well, what will change that? I think one of the best things Bitcoiners do is to differentiate Bitcoin, not crypto. It's something that I say all the time is that, you know, if you understand what Bitcoin is and then if I have family members who start asking me about Dogecoin or something, you know, Ethereum. And I just start talking about this is how it's different. I will I'll see a little bit of the light bulb go on. But I think until we see, you know, legacy finance, really, I think I think these ETFs coming on the line will be terrific for older investors and give it more legitimacy. That will make a difference. It's time for a quick break to hear these messages from my partners. Fold is the best Bitcoin rewards debit card and shopping app in the world.

"You're 6 40 time for our Monday morning house call from Dr Kevin. Most chief medical officer at Northwestern Medicine is central to page hospital. How you doing today, Doc? Doing great, Bob. Be nice to see some blue sky, but, uh, maybe a couple more days. We'll see it. Well, you know what? Back to the eighties starting tomorrow, so you'll be happily, uh, on the golf course Warm. You know what's going on here all the confusion. Fighter says it will meet with top U. S. Health officials today to discuss The request for federal authorization of the third dose of its Covid 19 vaccine, as Dr Fauci acknowledges that it is entirely conceivable, maybe likely that booster shots will be needed. So can you clear up some of the confusion we have about this? Because, I guess, uh, I guess the problem here is we're still getting numbers and getting information on a daily basis about all this, aren't we? We are, you know, and right now, Visor should come out. It's either gonna be tae or tomorrow with their study out of Israel, and that's what everyone is waiting for. The preliminary study out of Israel really doesn't make a great case for a booster. Now Pfizer, I can say Hey, it's great for you guys to be ready and to be ramped up in case we need one. But I still look at what we have so many parts of the world that don't have any vaccine at all. Really do. We need a third booster and they're going to have to have some really good science to show that it's needed because Right now. We know that anybody who got two doses is well protected against Delta Variant. Um, you know, people say, Well, they're antibodies. Wayne, and we talked about this before three to Wilson, you know, sure, her antibodies Wayne, But we have things called T memory cells and B cells that remember even though you won't be able to measure the antibodies in your in your blood These cells. Remember what they have seen and when they get exposed to that virus will start making antibodies. So we have to really make sure we look at this closely before we get everybody lined up for boosters. I guess the prevailing wisdom. I'm with the government's health experts, including Dr Pouches. It's too soon for the government to recommend another shot. Do you agree with that? Yeah, I do. You know, I think there might be subsets. We might look and say, Hey, seniors, we know even with influenza vaccine, we give him that high dose because their immune response isn't as great So we might say, uh, the booster shot is going to be for those over the age of 65 for those with diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease. Let's make sure we're using it appropriately when in fact, the science shows us That the timing works right? So I don't see it coming in this fall, But I may be wrong. Um, for people who got the fighter or the Moderna or the Johnson and Johnson Do you have different advice depending on which shot you got? Well, the only thing I would say here, Johnson and Johnson should be coming out very soon with their data because they you know they proved that there were single shot was great, but they also did a double shot studies so they should really be coming out with that data soon. If anything, you know, I might said the Johnson and Johnson folks might be the first ones in line mainly because we showed how great the response was with that second whether Spicer modern, er, bionic any of those We found that that second dose was really what gave the big the big boost? So I would say that the Johnson and Johnson although their initial single dose was very good, they may be the first in line for a booster just made based on the science and the math behind it.

Yeah, Bob, it is. Unfortunately, that's probably the biggest thing right now is the vaccine hesitancy and the actually the creeping high rate of those who aren't getting their second shots and I would just hope everybody looks towards India and sees what's going on there and understands the importance of us getting to a point of herd immunity here in Illinois, the vaccination rate dipped for the 11th consecutive day. Dropping to the lowest It's been in about two months. Do we really need to get to a new 80% vaccination rate for herd immunity, Doc? Well, you have to remember that the 80% would include Children as well. So, yeah, so we are nowhere near where we need to be, But it's It's interesting that You know, Two months ago, we said, Oh, my gosh. There three months ago will say, you know who's how'm I gonna get a shot? How am I going to get a shot and we said, Hey, you know what? Don't worry. By June, we will have plenty of shots. Well, here we are. That may with plenty of shots. So to your point, everyone has an opportunity to get a shot right now and very easily and to get to 80% for herd immunity. Yeah, that would be really nice. But I'm not sure we're gonna hit that point with the hesitancy that we're seeing right now. And for anyone who got dose one of the Fizer or Madonna and thinks I don't need does too. Couldn't be couldn't be further from the truth. Right? Correct. You know, Dose one. Certainly You're going to get some protection between 60 and 70%. We don't know how long that would last after Dose one. We just know that the clinical trial showed that two doses. Gives you 95% immunity, and we know that it lasts at least six months, You know, And that's an ongoing trial that they're still looking at to see how long this is gonna last. In case we will need a booster in the future, which it appears we will. But certainly the opportunity to get a shot right now, way have show. Look at the numbers. Now The cases are down the ex, and now you're starting to see people being allowed to go outside without masks and being allowed to gather. I would hope that if you're on the hesitancy fence that you would like to get back to some of those social interactions and get the shot. Yep. And for anyone who thinks well, you know what if I get cold, but it's probably going to be mild. No worries. I don't need the vaccine pay attention to studies like when I was reading about few days ago in the UK They found one in three Coben. Survivors suffer neurological or mental disorders within six months of infection. So even if you get over it quickly, you could have long term problems, couldn't you? Absolutely no long term problems. It's really interesting. You know, the case is that the individuals that had mild cases mild moderate even somewhere they felt like they were almost asymptomatic are still having long term problems right. Those long term problems are usually loss of taste and smell. Cognitive, little brain, fog and headaches. The individuals who get really sick and end up in the hospital on ventilators. Those of the individuals that were seeing have lung damage and heart damage, So the spectrum of the long term damage on this virus is huge. And like you said that that was a big study that came out of the UK one in three with even mild and air, minimal symptoms still ended up with long term neurologic being Cognitive headaches, paste and smell loss. Um yeah. And what about this drug? We heard about this past week. Five years experimental, aural drug to treat covert 19 at the first sign of illness. Is this going to be on the market soon? No, no, I don't think so. And it's It's interesting. Um, like I think it was very unfortunate timing, because now, people say, Well, I don't need to get the vaccine because there's gonna be a medication for that. So Fizer is looking at making what we call Prodi Ace inhibitor and this is a class of drugs that we use for hepatitis we used for HIV, so used for other viral illnesses. There's about five or six different manufacturers out there that make this and they are just starting with a quick call. Phase One study and then that he's one study. It's all it's going to be less than 100 people. And at that time, what they look at is giving different doses to see if it's safe, intolerable. That is what a phase one study does not to see that it's effective. Phase two and Phase three shows the effectiveness and that's we get into a large groups. If you remember we were talking about the face three study in the vaccine trials all have had 30,000 people. Vaccine trials are a little different than drug trials have probably get a couple 1000 maybe 4000 for the drug trial. But certainly we won't have results back to a point where it would be approved by the end of the year, so I can't see that Which I pick with unfortunate because now people have this glimmer of hope that I don't care. I'm not going to get it because I'm gonna have a medication that's gonna treat it right. We don't need that out there. We'll get Toso. Some of the questions listeners have emailed US and Texas for Dr Kevin most momentarily. Let's get to a couple of bits of information for you.

"Tucker Carlson is making headlines after a controversial rant about face masks. At one point, he suggested confronting people wearing face masks on the sidewalk and asked them to remove them. Dr Kevin most with Northwestern Medicine, tells WGN's John Williams. It's an ignorant statement. You're assuming now that that individuals wearing that mask because of covert we have many people were Mass because there is undergoing chemotherapy that there have immune systems that are decreased house. Certainly that's a small percentage, but that individuals that's wearing that mask is either trying to protect themselves or protect you. So why would you be offended by someone who's trying to protect themselves or you? Carlson also likened asking Children to wear face. Masks to child abuse. Chicago Koven metrics are slowly improving. The city is averaging 548 new cases daily down 17% from last week. Chicago's positivity rate is at 4.9%. Down from 5.4% a week ago. Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr Allison are, Woody says they're still seeing a large amount of new cases among younger adults. But there is a slight change People 18 to 49 now are all having about the same rate. So we're seeing most of our covert case is still concentrated among younger Chicagoans, but have seen that drop off in the very youngest Chicago is really quite nicely. And now equally, we're seeing cases among those in the 18 to 49 range, she says. This is also the age demographic They're currently focused on when it comes to vaccinations.

"Kevin, you are on w g n Good morning. Alright. I had caught Colbert of few days before Thanksgiving. I had my first covert shot. Um, just a couple days ago Friday. And I was I was reading that they're thinking now that maybe if you recently had covert, you may not need the second shot. If if could your your, you know, music? Smart kind of built up Or is that true or not? It's Kevin Kevin. Most Azi, maybe to Kevin's here. This is what you told me after I had covert that eventually, I probably should get the shot. But because I had it in November. I probably don't need to worry about it for a while. Directing. Your studies have shown that individuals who had co bit and then got the vaccine even after the first dose. They're getting 10 times the response of those of us who got two doses. So they haven't stopped the second dose in individuals with covert. Probably because just the timing I think as you go forward, they will stop that. But right now, I don't think they want to confuse anybody. And a lot of people think I may have had Cove. It would. In fact, they may not have so kudos to you that your head covert survived it. And now we're getting the vaccines. European system is probably gonna be the best out of all of us. All right. You think I need a second shot? I personally would get a second shot just cause the science shows it on. Also, wherever you got that first shot there, holding that second shot for you, and these are the ones where we go. Oh, my gosh. People that don't show up for their second shots are doses that we may waste. So in other words, they don't have somebody waiting there to take your other shot because of all the timing of the first shots, So it's totally up to you if he had bad side effects, and you say, Hey, I think I'm protected. Okay. You of all people probably have a much better chance. If you had minimal side effects, I would say, boy. Looking at the promise of being is protected as I possibly could. I certainly would get it. But I I did have I got real Lakey. I even got a fever of 101 and a half Up from that is usually 97 a half, so I don't know. I was kind of leery about giving second one but You know after but Um okay. Well, thank you very much, You know, Thank you. Thank you very much, Kevin. But Kevin most if he decides not to have that other one. He needs to let them know so that Dose that they were going to give to him can go to somebody else, right? Direct and depending on where he got that first owns. It all comes down to timing given example here potentially page we do 1000 doses the day So we have the second dose people coming in. Well, if we have one person or two people are three people that are getting their first dose. 28 days from now we need to have another clinic and find a second dose for them. So it's all coming down to logistics. He's one officer. Okay, but our goal at Northwestern has been to not waste one dose ever. So and we've been very good about that. This is Ellen. The 3129817 200. You're on with Dr Kevin. Most My own. Hello. Hi, Doctor. Um On Friday. I received my second dose. And I was feeling fine. And yesterday I was quite lethargic. And a little bit today as well. And I'm wondering how long that lasts on average. Yeah, when it's about 48 hours, and you're not unusual that you had that you were okay the first day and then actually, the 2nd and 3rd day kind of picks up. Um, the is launching don't have fever. If you have fever and body aches and go ahead and take Advil or Tylenol. The lethargy should resolve really, by tomorrow on DATs what we're saying we're not seeing people with long term lethargy after this. It's really this short lived while the immune system is kicking in and really should not be a problem with you, I would say beyond tomorrow. Great. Thank you. Have I'm fine. Other than that, I've no problem with my temperature. Thank you so much. Good deal. Good luck. Good luck with all of that. This is Rose. You're on WGN with Dr Kevin Most Good morning, Doctor. Good morning. How are you? I'm good. Thank you Rose. Um, my daughter is gonna be getting married in November of this year It's been postponed twice. Do you think I should approach opponent again? Or should I just wait to see how the chips fall? No, Rose. I think November. I think we're going to be in a really good place that you listen to Dr Fauci last week, he said. We will have open season in mid April Open season being that there is going to be enough vaccine that anybody who wants a vaccine should be able to get it. I was I was saying, I would hope that we would have hit that point sometime in June. You saying in April, which is very promising, so, really come November. You would hope that everyone that's going to your wedding has had the opportunity to be vaccinated months in advance of the wedding, So I'm hoping that really by November. We're back to doing ah, lot of somewhat normal things I'll say. Okay, I've got one more question. I work in the medical field, and I do where a K and 95 mask. On D I know that there is some talk about double masking what I have to double as if I'm wearing a kid and Kay and 95 or 95 mask. If you weren't in 95, we really don't need to write and 95 has been fitted to you. It's a medical grade mass that's been fitted to your face and is very tight decay and 95 not so much fitted to them or cone, like, allow you brain a little bit easier, but they're not as tight to your face. On really aren't fitted. You just can't go out and buy those. Um, So when you're looking to protect yourself wearing that double mask does a couple things one it holds the under mask. Closer to your face for no slippage, and that gives you one additional layer. So if you're K and 95 is very tight, fitting your fine, But if it's not then go ahead and wear a cloth mask over that, and it will hold that mask much tighter to your face. Thank you for the call Rose. And now you are advocating wearing two masks these days, right? Yeah. You know, we looked at masking early on. It was for us to protect others from us with case we were asymptomatic carriers protecting others around us from giving the illness now, with the variance in here. What we're seeing is boy. We need to do that additional step because now we're going to show that mass not only protect us from others, but also protect us so that second mass Holds that mass tighter to your face. One more layer for any virus to get too close to the edge is on the side for air leaking out and certainly will put start to protect you in some of the studies up to 92%, which is almost as good as the 95 that we're wearing in the medical field. Two of those blue masks, cloth masks. Do you have a preference? Well, I think if you know where the to the cloth mask, that's fine. You probably heard about the nodding. You know whether you not him or whether you you've turned the strips turn the year loops so that it holds a little bit tighter to your face. It won't fog up your glasses for one thing, and then it gives you a little bit tighter on the side where we see a lot of the air leaking out and potential for air to come in. So You can wear to that. I'll tell you a lot of people like to have one cloth mascot. It feels a little bit more comfortable for them. But really, you can easily breathe through two masks. People are concerned well. Will I get short of breath and for the most part? To mask their spirit. Easy to breathe through a swell. It's just really what you get used to remember. A year ago when we were all complaining that we had to wear one master. Then we couldn't breathe. Now it's now It's so second nature. We don't even notice. Anymore. Least I don't Anyway, Bill, you're on WGN with Dr Kevin Most That's Dr I have had my two shots.

So if you live out the side, the city it's going to be a little easier to get a table. If you're interested in that. It probably will. You know, I think that the restaurants are gonna be very safe and very smart and whether they go from 25 to 50 and make sure that their spacing is right. They want to stay open, so they're gonna do everything they possibly can to make sure it's a safe environment and that someone doesn't commit and say, Boy, these tables were 4 ft apart, and next thing you know, they're gonna get shut down. It's in their best interest to keep you safe. Yeah, I've always I mean, I have been eating out. And, um, you know, I've benefit from ignorance, but I felt pretty good restaurants.

"Most everyone talks about how low the flu and cold numbers are for this year and attributes that to masks and social distancing. So folks are wearing masks on making those illnesses get down to almost non existent numbers. How our covert numbers still up If masks work, wouldn't all those numbers be down? This is the exact reason people don't believe in masks. You can't say they work for one and not the other. Otherwise, the science is wrong. Thank you, Brian. What about that Doc s? O'Brien makes a good point. Unfortunately, Brian, there are very few people who are asymptomatic with influenza. So that's that's probably one of the biggest things and it is much more contagious. So if you look at our influenza rates, and he's absolutely right Influence is way down. And if you think about all the things that we would do to spread influenza, we're stopping to do those now we're not shaking hands were physically distancing were wearing masks. Exactly the response we would expect to see Now you can't compare influenza to co bit right now because of the contagious factor hand because there's so much unknowns aspire is the size of the particles. How far they transfer all the things that we're learning right now. So I could tell you, you know, a normal year about a half A million hospitalizations for influenza and 40,000 deaths were not seeing anywhere near that right now. So we're certainly seeing those numbers with Kobe. But if we're fortunate that Employed. The season is down because hospitals could not handle you know the twin pandemic as we're concerned, which was the reason we pushed everyone to get vaccinated this year. We gave, you know 70 million vaccines. That's the highest number of flu vaccines ever, which is another reason why the flu numbers are so low this year. All right, mask up, wash up. Back up.

"6 40 time for a Monday morning a house call from Dr Kevin Most high, Don Doc. I'm doing great, Bob. How much yourself Well, you know what? I'm encouraged by what looks to be the fact that we've avoided the holiday spike. Around here in in the virus, some metrics showing Brief increases in some parts of the state here, but overall eyes this right? No significant post holiday surge in Illinois. Yeah, absolutely. You know, we we saw a little blip, but we didn't see anything like we way were prepared for so it's better to be prepared and then not see it, but we do It looks like we were very fortunate. Can you clear up some of the confusion about vaccines? How? Where? When? Who? What's going on? Yeah, sure. So right now we're still in phase one day, So we're still doing the frontline health care workers. We should really be finishing with them this week. And then Phase one B will start next Monday, January 25th and that's those. You know, the governor moved it from 75 down to 65 so age 65 over In front line. Essential workers, teachers, childcare, grocery store workers. Police fire that, um Now you say Well, how Well, that's gonna be the big question is going to be worked on this week. You know, health care systems right now across the across Illinois are trying to figure out exactly how they're going to not only contact those individuals but where we're going to do those vaccinations. We've done the mass vaccinations at each of the hospital's U. S. Health systems have set that up. I think initially you're going to see that the governor will in the counties will step up a swell start to use places like the Walgreens and the CBS is and the Jewel Osco owes, But they're going to be very limited on how many they could do. Just give an example you know, here. CDH. We had one day we did over 2000 Day. So you know, obviously a grocery store can't do that. But then the county's gonna have to set up Max that mass vaccination sites and you all saw Mayor Life put announced six sites last week that will be set up in rolled out. I think you'll start to see a lot more of that information come out this week. So in the mean time are we supposed to go online and fill out if we live in Cook County there form for the vaccine, or Lake County's is Is that what we can do Right now? We'll be nice if all the counties had that a capability to do. Some counties have those up and running other counties. Don't I think the one thing I would do is a lot of conditions right now on Elektronik medical record called Epic. And patients than have access to something called my chart where they can go in and check their labs and check their medications. I would say, Ask your doctor if he's if he's on my charger. If he has my chart, and if you haven't signed up, get it. No. That's how many health systems are going to send out the request to people saying you now fit the requirements. You fulfill the requirements to get the vaccine. Would you like it? And if you would tell us and then we will give you a location at a time. I think you'll see Illinois do a lot different than Florida and some of the other states. I don't think you're going to see big, big, huge long lines. I hope it is much more well orchestrated, where people have a specific time that they're going to get there so that we really do it more efficiently than having people stand in life for eight hours. Now. Most doctors offices don't have the freezer requirements to store the vaccine. So you're probably not going to be able to go to your doctor and get it right? Well, it's interesting, Bob. You know, the ultra cold that you're talking about there. I think what you're going to see. Those are the ones that have to be kept at minus 70. So hospitals like Northwestern Central to page we have those freezers. So I think what you're going to see is the visor vaccine is going to continue to go to the large hospitals. The Moderna, the AstraZeneca and certainly looks like the Johnson and Johnson are gonna be able to be sorted regular freezer. So doctor's offices, more rural areas would certainly be able to get those. So I think you're going to start to see some thought process and where we're gonna push these out, too. Is in order to convey in a regular freezer. You could be, you know, normal freezer. Would you prefer the Moderno? The Fizer, AstraZeneca, the Johnson, which is best? Yeah, it could be. A great question will be answered. Probably in a year or two from now, So right now we don't have enough data to see is one better for a specific demographic is one better for seniors is one better for The Latin community. We don't know that yet. So what we're trying to do right now is just get his many people protected as possible. Um, I would say that the probably one of the biggest things if you look too Are you follow this geeky otherwise like I do you know the Johnson and Johnson vaccine a single dose vaccine. That has really looked at the inter and data looks very, very good for not only the side effect profile, but for the effectiveness, and when you get to a single dose one, you're going to see a lot of people wanting that instead of hearing Oh, the second dose might give you a little bit more side effects than the first Johnson and Johnson appears to have a great vaccine that hopefully be more information in the next week, and we're probably what a month away from that vaccine being available if it passes all the tests. Probably close to that. If they report to next week, they could get any way within. You know, 56 days, and then it's gonna be all right now they're making it already. So now it's going to be just the distribution of it, so it's probably gonna be within a month. And AstraZeneca the same, So you know, we're all concerned about. Are we gonna have enough vaccine? What? We're going to go from two major manufacturers to four, potentially within the next four weeks.

Which may be all that they're trying to do is punish him or or it may be that they actually think they got a shot at this thing. Or maybe that distinction doesn't matter. Maybe they think he deserves it. And maybe this actually will succeed in keeping him from running for reelection in 2024. They're trying to preserve democracy from another Donald Trump presidency will visit with one of our area Congress people, Brad Schneider from the 10th Congressional District, the North Shore and north suburbs along I 94 That's his district. I talked to him a little bit about his vote and a couple of other things, including the fact that when the capital was stormed last week, when the insurrectionists ran up and into the capital, they then wish to the members of Congress into smaller chambers. And so you see the video of them all hanging out kind of milling about with nothing to do. Late at night. Some of them had mass on some of them did not. He's upset because is he one of the Congress people? LF that contracted the coronavirus. Ah, so he did contract the coronavirus after that, And he's mad because some of the people worrying mass. Some of the people were not wearing masks on this video that shows them coming up to the people that weren't wearing massing here. Would you please put this mask on? They just shook their head. No. Now he has the virus will visit with him A little later on after the 10 o'clock, WGN radio news Here's Kevin most from Northwestern Central DuPage Hospital High Doctor Welcome to the show. Hey, John, How are you doing? Pretty good. That is a little surprising to me, though, in that you think that all the members of Congress? I don't know? I thought they would have to be Passing daily tests together in chambers. So even though you're in a smaller room if you're all negative, it's not going to spontaneously erupt. But evidently somebody had it in that room. And now a lot of people have been infected. Yeah, I'm not sure how often they were getting tested until they were getting tested. But I'm not sure it was daily. So you still have that window? Unfortunately, you did. You saw they were definitely in close contact. They were all close there. Well, there might take a couple hours, so certainly Uh, represented cider should be upset, and it certainly wasn't a show of leadership to protect each other in that moment. Is this still true? I could be negative. I could get a negative test. But in fact I could have it because I don't have enough of the virus in me yet. It hasn't grown enough. Yep. Yep. So it's not so much of false negative where the test you know failed. It was that we didn't have enough viral load toe where we got to a point where we could capture and making a positive test. So then what's the time between a negative test? And I've given it a chance to see if In fact, I have it or not, like I wonder how much time I we're looking at 2 to 5 days? Yep. Let me ask you this doctor. How well do you think we're doing on the rollout of the vaccine here in the Chicago area? John, You know, I think that that the question is is a interesting question, because when we look at the rollout of the vaccine right now, we're looking at doing hospitals and health care providers in for that portion of it. I think we're doing pretty darn good. You know, if you look at what we're doing in Northwestern, I want to say we're close to 30,000 that we've already done just hit Northwestern alone, which is more than Some states have done But the bigger question is, what are we going to do for the next step? Once we're done with the health care providers? How are we going to now? Go to that one B group of the vulnerable people. Those over the age of 65. The logistics for that is going to be the biggest question. Most hospitals couldn't have 1000 2000 people coming on to their campus every day, just from the logistics of parking. And how do we get them through here? We have a captive audience. You know, we know we're gonna do the fourth floor today. The third floor and we we have the people already here on campus toe. Do that, and we contract them much easier. Doctor are what he said That 94% was 90 plus percent of the vaccines in Illinois will be distributed not through the state of city but through partners. Walgreens, Costco stuff like that. But I'm thinking, Okay, then where do I sign up? Um, um I and a group. I have not heard a consistent message from anybody about how you sign up for the vaccine. How do I get in line there? Part of the biggest frustrations. We have. So what we're looking at now, and I know a lot of the medical groups to page medical group, the Northwestern medical group were starting to look now. Okay. We have all the information on the patients. Let's start pushing messages out to them. As soon as we know the logistics of where we're gonna be able to offer that You know, for the age, it's easy 65 above. Okay, great. We don't have a lot of information on people's employment. We don't know if somebody was accountant and now is a bus driver, or you know what their actual occupation is to get them into that group as well. So that's the frustrating part off the how and where are we going to do the next ones? You know, we talked about taking over the United Center. Well, that's great for people in the city and on the West side of the city, But it certainly isn't going to be good for someone that lives. In Barrington, right. So we really are gonna have to look at Are we gonna have mass vaccination sites in high schools now because they're essentially empty and it's great that we have partners like Walgreens stepping up and Wal Mart and Jewel Osco, But really, when you look at the logistics of that we watch these people for 15 minutes after they get vaccinated. You could imagine. You put 100 people in a in a jewel Osco, and you haven't said there for 15 minutes. They don't have the capability where the layout to do that so still really working through the logistics, And that's probably one of our biggest frustrations and you're talking about the logistics. I'm also thinking about the prioritization. Now, plenty of our listeners have said, Go to your county website. Will county calm Lake County, Doug of whatever cook County. We did it last you some questions, and then I guess it gives you a code. You're one air one be something like that correct. And then I guess it's some point Say at the United Center will say, Okay, if you're one b, Come on in. I mean, is that the scheme But I haven't heard the governor talk it length about that. Yeah. And John. It's got to be more organized that we can't just go with the one be. People don't even understand the scope of one B. If we said OK and DuPage County, we're gonna open it up to one. Bees.

One of those respected people who got a shop this week is Dr Kevin Slavin, a pediatric infectious disease specialist who's also director of Quality for Hackensack, Meridian Children's Health in New Jersey. ABC News producer Joy Piazza. Rupert spoke to him right after he received his vaccination. What was that process like? It actually was remarkably smooth. We have because of the limited early distribution. We've identified highest risk. Health care workers. Should be in in what we're calling Phase one and they set up this incredible process where They can administer enough vaccines in a very brief amount of time in a single location. With everybody keeping their distance. Everybody masking. And even with the period of observation that's needed afterwards to make sure that they're no immediate side effects. The The whole process from walking in the door. Registering, making sure that I didn't have any of the screening conditions that would. That would be a reason not to get the vaccine at that point. Getting the vaccine and being observed for 15 minutes. That whole process took about half an hour. Every step work exactly the way it was supposed to. I didn't wanna sort of ask how you feel right now. Do you have any sort of underlying Grogginess or fatigue or pain at the injection site. Anything like that. So yesterday my arm was a little sore. So you know I could I could I could use it. It wasn't a big deal, but it was A little bit different from what I get with most most vaccinations, but that was it. There were these couple of instances of allergic reactions in the UK, and then there were two in Alaska. Is it something that folks should worry about? If they have allergic reactions to medicine or or food or anything like that? Should they talked their doctor the way that It looks like it has come up is for people who have had serious allergic reactions before and it's certainly not everybody who's had a serious allergic reaction before. But people who've had serious allergic reactions before mostly focusing on an awful axis, which is, you know the most severe form where there could be severe swelling and your difficulty breathing. And swelling of the throat swelling of the tongue swelling of the lips, all of which presents somebody from being able to really breathe effectively. I think for people who had to severe allergic reactions that that would be something to very seriously discuss with their physician, Bilton observation time immediately afterwards where your observed in a setting We're a health care provider can administer immediate treatment. If you have that that is actually really key for anybody who wants to get the vaccine but has a zit concern that if they speak with their physician, and it felt that it's safe, making sure that it is given in a place that can provide immediate rescue treatment for a severe allergic reaction, and then get somebody quickly to a place where they can provide ongoing treatment goes, that's gonna be the real key component for that.

When it comes to ice melt, 'what happens in Greenland doesn't stay in Greenland'
"So this recent study in the journal Nature comes out and it says Greenland the ice sheet there now melting seven times faster than in the nineteen nineties. So why should we care about that. Well faster melt. Means faster sea level rise and that puts an extra four hundred million people at flood. Risk by twenty one hundred.

Appreciate the chance to talk to your audience. So I'm sitting here with Dr Kevin Trenberth and we were just talking about the new Greenland ice sheet article. Hi Paul Kevin Trenberth so. There was an exceptional melt event in August of this year when Dan rivers of melted water. Where flowing across parts of Greenland and the extent of the melt across greenland was unprecedented at contributes tributes significantly to sea level rise? And you know the sea level is going up by over three millimeters per year. It's gone up over three about three and a half inches Since one thousand nine hundred ninety two which is when we had altimeters and space to actually measure this and so we can measure the sea level rise to millimeter accuracy. The ocean is warming That's expanding and so. That's another key part of this overall problem. So Kevin trenberth was talking about millimeter seal rises and people might think those are small. But if you have the sea level rise is by just one centimetre over six million people will be affected. There's a lot of people that live near close to the coast. This is affecting real people.
