Is b-yeezi a genius?

As if a masterclass on AWK wasn't enough, now he gives us a detailed explanation of PCR testing. Thank you for this episode. It was incredibly interesting.

Another fantastic show

I suspect b-yeezi has some serious scientific training because he does a good job on this. A common misconception Ihave heard form soe people is that the MRNA vaccines might change DNA. And it just doesn't work that way. DNA is what produces RNA, not the other way around.
