Hosts: Ed Brown, Dr. Shayne Joseph, Lucas Randall.

[00:19:57] The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced last week that the bacteria that causes gonorrhea may be developing resistance to the only two antibiotics left that can cure it.

[00:25:12] While all the major planets in the solar system orbit the sun in a fairly tight plane, that orbital plane isn’t aligned with the Sun’s equator. Which means either the sun has been tilted, or something has influenced the orbits of all the planets. Two independent scientific papers published last week point to the second option – and Planet Nine could be the culprit.
