In an effort to reach a younger audience, Dr. Anthony Fauci went on Barstool’s popular podcast Pardon My Take to discuss Covid-19 and what precautions millennial should be taking to help slow its spread.

Fauci is the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and a member of President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force. He told Big Cat and PFT that it was the younger population’s duty to “protect the vulnerable” during this time.

“When an individual who is young gets infected, and either has no symptoms at all, or even mild symptoms, that individual will continue the virus spreading in the community,” Fauci said. “You might inadvertently, even though you feel that you are invulnerable… even if you are doing very well, you have to be a very important part of our national effort to contain the outbreak.”

The doctor reiterated the danger in people dismissing coronavirus and Covid-19 as something that only effects the elderly. “We really do need you, this isn’t something that can be successful without you,” he said, addressing Pardon My Take’s young audience directly.

PFT Commenter proposed a scenario. He asked what the right course of action was for a young person, living with roommates, who starts to develop a cough and a low grade fever.

“Do you recommend that they go in and they get themselves tested?” he asked. “Or for now, do you recommend that they kind of stay in place and see if it gets any worse and reduce their contact with the outside world?”

“Stay home. Call up your healthcare provider – be that a physician, a healthcare worker or a clinic, inform them of what’s going on,” recommended in lieu of people running out to get tested. “Don’t go out. You don’t want to go to the emergency room, you don’t want to go to a clinic – and we’ll have much more accessibility of this as the days and weeks go by.”

A video of the full interview is below.

“We have to make sure that it’s mentioned every time that man is mentioned because that is a big deal that it happened.”

While things may have quieted down a little bit with Brett Favre and his scandal involving misuse of public funds in Mississippi, Pat McAfee is going to make sure people don’t forget what the hall of fame quarterback is accused of.

On his show on Wednesday, McAfee said he thought of a way to mention the situation during Aaron Rodgers’ weekly appearance the day before. Rodgers in conversation talked about learning under Favre in the first years of his NFL career in Green Bay.

“My brain was literally like we’re in the holiday season. Brett Favre – what did he do,” McAfee said. “He didn’t just steal from the poor. Oh, he is the actual Sticky Finger Bandits from Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.”

Pat added that whenever the name Brett Favre is brought up on his show, it is absolutely necessary to remind folks about the scandal.

“We have to make sure that it’s mentioned every time that man is mentioned because that is a big deal that it happened,” he said. “Now obviously Brett Favre Enterprises is alleging that this is all wrong. And I can’t wait to hear BFE to drop Brett Favre Enterprises’ side of the story. And we will judge it accordingly.”

“Even though as a football player, he was an incredibly tough football player, good football player, did a lot of things,” McAfee added. “Certainly in the middle of stealing from poor people in Mississippi right now. Have to chat about that.”

Favre is yet to be charged with any crimes, but the state is currently investigating the matter. Early in the fall, Favre’s weekly appearances on local and national radio shows were halted in light of the initial fallout from the story.
