I understand that usual HPR policy dictates that episodes are not to be
edited or removed after they are uploaded but in the case of this
episode I think it's irresponsible for Hacker Public Radio to leave it
up, especially in the midst of a global health crisis.
Are there any plans to deal with this episode's potentially harmful content?
