vaccineRight on schedule, we present to you episode 272 of The Reality Check. We provide a brief overview of Rob Ford and why he is still in office. Then, Adam starts off the first segment of the show with a look into if our ancestors slept twice per night, and if that’s a healthier sleeping habit that should be adopted. Darren then goes over a bunch of flu vaccine myths (hint: get the flu shot). Elan closes things out with the myth of the week: Did George Washington have wooden teeth? All of this plus your regular dose of rants and jokes. Enjoy!
