FBI Director Christopher Wray said the FBI “assessed” the likely source of the virus was a Wuhan lab leak and that the problem is China. Politician and media response is to act as if everyone knows it may have come from the lab, the problem is the Chinese government and the lack of international safety regulations, and the reason we need to know what happened is to prepare for the next pandemic.

Evidently they prefer we forget. In this short, prerecorded episode, Keith remembers.
