Ingenuity on Mars, the pandemic, and where'd that flower come from?

We spent a good portion of the program talking about the Ingenuity helicopter on Mars and the first controlled flight on another planet.

We talked about the head of the national disease control agency in the so-called People's Republic of China saying that their official vaccine "don’t have very high protection rates."

We talked about cyber security and the risks people take with weak passwords and passwords that can be guessed by anyone looking closely at their social media postings.
