As COVID-19 continues its rapid spread in the U.S. and around the world, we take a look at the practice of social distancing, how has been presented by many authorities as a way to make the spread of the virus more manageable (01:42), and how some have seemingly disregarded the practice (12:26).  The guys also discuss some of the serious economic concerns that come with social distancing and potentially a national lockdown (24:51), what they see in the panic buying trends sweeping the nation (42:23), and what they would stock up on if there was a national lockdown (48:00).
