Time off during the holidays can seem to fly by much too quickly. We find out how to de-stress and make the most of our vacation. We also check in on the top stories in national politics, including President-elect Biden’s plans for a COVID-19 recovery in the new year.

Featured in this Show

  • This Week In Washington: December 23, 2020

    President-elect Joe Biden continues to announce nominees for his cabinet and outline his COVID-19 plan. We catch up on that and hear how President Trump is approaching the final month of his term.

  • How To Make Time Off From Work Actually Feel Like A Break

    Getaway vacations aren’t a readily available form of escape this holiday season, but you can still find other ways to feel a separation from work with a few days off. We talk with a Wisconsin psychology professor who tells us how being more self-aware can help us find the best forms of stress relief for ourselves in our free time.
