Dear Friend and Listener:

Last night I listened to an interview with Mike Yeadon, retired vice president and chief scientist for Pfizer’s respiratory division — and I was astonished. Originally broadcast earlier this week on Hearts of Oak, I will be replaying the entire conversation on tonight’s Planet Waves FM. The interview was conducted by Peter Mcilvenna.

The full program usually posts before its scheduled time of 10 pm EDT. However, I plan to have the Mike Yeadon segment on this page by about 2 pm EDT.

Yeadon’s role at Pfizer was to supervise research and development of respiratory drugs worldwide (among other projects).

In this interview, he talks about natural pandemics, the fraudulent use of the PCR device as a “diagnostic tool,” the nature vaccine design and in particular the use of spike proteins, and how his fellow scientists felt when Pfizer was convicted of crimes several years ago.

He talks about his correspondence with former colleagues over matters related to the toxicity of what were then proposed formulations for the “covid” vaccine.

He discusses his discovery of problems with the concept of a respiratory virus as disease vector. He explains how many doctors and scientists were able to see through the issues but said nothing.

You will be familiar with many of these issues

If you’ve listened to any of my coverage the past few years, you will be familiar with many of the things he says. It’s just that now they are coming from someone who faithfully served Pfizer as one of its best minds.

This is someone who displays no bitterness, only grounded sincerity and deep concern for life on the planet.

Jerry Garcia

The interview is one hour long and I think Yeadon deserves the benefit of the doubt. Last week, I read some of his correspondence to me. From my personal interactions with Mike, my impression is that he is the real thing.

Jerry Garcia Was Born 80 Years Ago

On a happier note, Jerry Garcia’s 80th birth anniversary was earlier this week, and of course I will have a musical and astrological tribute to the great maestro, and some interview material — as well as coverage of next week’s Full Moon in Aquarius.

  1. Great show tonight, and what a great Jerry tribute. Loved the segments from the interview and your discussion of his chart and his overall being. Yeah, pushing boundaries, “being weird,” captured in the very first two originals of his ever recorded, “I Can’t Come Down,” and “Mindbender.” And GREAT call re his scales playing, his use of the chromatic scale, both within scales as well as a transit mode between them. Chromatic passing tones. One of his collaborators, i wish i could remember who, possibly Kreutzman, mentioned in an interview how he had a way of using the 4 notes which are not in a given scale as part of a solo, i.e. chromatic.

    Lots of personal connections evoked by your tribute. August, Jerry’s month (both birth date and death date), had a special connection for me in this regard. My first Dead show was 8/15/71, Berkeley Community Theater, first day back in the Bay Area after 11 weeks driving around the US. My third show was 8/24/72, same venue, my GEDDIT show (went in liking the Grateful Dead, came out of it a Deadhead), in the transition between Leo and my own sun sign of Virgo. 8/10/74 i went to see Jerry’s band (Legion of Mary, at that point) at the Keystone Berkeley (like your first selection, from the Nicky Hopkins era), a day after Nixon resigned, earlier in the day engaged in … being “highly mindful,” ended up in one of the front tables at the place, like 10-15 ft from Jerry’s moving fingers, Kreutzman filling in on drums that night. 8/5/79, 43 years ago today, my then-girlfriend-future-wife-now-ex Pam and i went to the Oakland Auditorium, downtown Oakland by Lake Merritt, our first time there, for a Dead show, the second of a two-night stand, their first time playing there ever, first time we saw Brent, Pam’s first show… mindfulness, one of her first such experiences period, only her second show, her GEDDIT show, GREAT show. Eventually saw them there 27 more times. 8/20/83, we went to the Frost Theater at Stanford, basically in Palo Alto, the Dead’s original home town, for the first time, only their second stand there, outdoor place, great one, a BLAST of a show. And 8/16/91, 20 years and one day after my first show, we went to our last show together, at Shoreline, Mountain View, our first show there, a few miles from Palo Alto, closest they were now allowed to be near the Frost, which had closed its doors to them after the ’89 shows, same year as with the Oakland Auditorium, as with the Greek Theater in Berkeley, all the best places to see them. And it was a GREAT show.

    By the way, Port Chester is not near the Tappan Zee/Cuomo Bridge, it’s across Westchester County, on the Long Island Sound shore, as one nears Connecticut. My family drove to the area (New Rochelle, Mamaroneck, …) quite often in July/August ’62, before i started high school, i think maybe they were interested in looking at a house to buy, but decided they could not afford it. Great Dead shows there in February ’71 and Jerry shows later, like the one you played. Looking forward to hearing your two Grateful Dead selections.

    Jerry loved to relate the story of how one time they were in a hotel, and he was walking around trying to figure out where the elevators were. He then noticed a large entourage was following him, and realized they thought he knew where he was going, proceeded to inform them otherwise. 😂
