Featured in this Show

  • A whole new (maskless) world

    There are two states left with indoor mask mandates. Last month, the CDC issued new guidelines that only recommend masks for certain individuals in certain situations, a move some have called confusing. We talk about what the shift means after two-plus years of mask wearing, particularly for those who are vulnerable.

  • The past, present and future of NATO

    Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a big test for NATO, but how exactly does the military alliance work? We discuss that, and what this conflict means for the future of NATO with an expert from the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
