Episode 15 - Covid-19, Campaigning, and Christmas. A Perfect Storm During a Pandemic., OCTOBER 12, 2020

The number of deaths from Covid-19 in Belize has nearly doubled in the last month. So why does nobody seem concerned? And just how much worse might the situation be following the election campaign, with Christmas on the horizon? Plus a mix of good and bad news from the first 10 days since the Philip Goldson International Airport re-opened.

Episode 16 - Pre-Election Special: Pundits, Polls, and Predictions!, NOVEMBER 9, 2020

Belize will vote in a general election on November 11. Will the UDP or PUP form the next government? To break down everything about this most unusual campaign I am joined by Glenn Tillett, Annmarie Williams, and Christian Riveroll who give their unique perspectives on election 2020.

Plus, I give my own two cents on the billion dollar question: Who will win the election?

Episode 17 - Election 2020 Post-Mortem / Belize Bans Gill Net Fishing!, NOVEMBER 16, 2020

Did the PUP win the election, or did the UDP lose it? My two cents on why the blue party ended up with such a massive victory on November 11.

Plus, Belize has become one of the first countries in the world to ban gill net fishing in their territorial waters. Andrew Roe, president of the Belize Game Fish Association explains how this very important regulation finally came to fruition after years of consultation.

Episode 19 - Learning To Live With Covid-19. You're Not Going To Like What That Really Means., DECEMBER 07, 2020

Over the last two weeks Belize has had one of the worst records for Covid-19 infections and deaths per capita worldwide. Government seems unwilling to take drastic action to contain the virus while many Belizeans are saying we need to learn to live with it. But living with Covid-19 doesn't mean what you think it means.

Also, some good news about a good Samaritan that Belize is lucky to have welcomed into our country.

A very tragic weekend following a terrible week in Belize. Is a nationwide lockdown the only hope we have left to turn the tide in the war against Covid-19?

Episode 21 - Who is Belize's Weed Guy?, JANUARY 18, 2021

The Government of Belize appears to be moving full steam ahead to legalize marijuana and establish a commercial cannabis industry. Last month the Minister responsible even introduced the media to his very own foreign cannabis consultant! So who is this "weed guy" and why is nobody asking the right questions?

Episode 22 - Is Belize Finally Flattening the Curve?, JANUARY 25, 2021

The statistics for Covid-19 infections appear to be much better than they were just one month ago. But are those numbers too good to be true? My two cents on why government should not ease restrictions, even if Belize is finally starting to flatten the curve.

Plus some good news as Mrs. Rossana Briceno becomes our new Special Envoy for the Development of Families and Children.

Episode 23 - New Covid Rules / Good Hair / Drug Planes / Rescue at Sea, FEBRUARY 01, 2021

The Covid restrictions get relaxed. The debate over "good" hair. How come no one ever goes to jail for trafficking narcotics in Belize? And a great story about a rescue at sea in San Pedro!

Episode 24 - The High Cost of PPEs / Sweetheart Contracts / Why is The Gazette So Difficult to Get?, FEBRUARY 8, 2021

Belize's largest public hospital is charging Covid-19 patients $200 per day just for the PPEs worn by health care workers! Why hasn't the new government done anything to end sweetheart contracts being offered by outgoing administrations? And if The Gazette is so important for Government, why is it so difficult (and expensive) for people to get a copy?
