We talk to a sociologist and a political scientist about the social and political obstacles to fighting climate change. Then, an infectious disease doctor tells us about efforts to prevent the spread of a dangerous fungus. Later, we talk to a researcher about a rise in emergency teaching licenses in Wisconsin.
