    Vaccine Mandate, We Hardly Knew Ye

    Vaccine Mandate, We Hardly Knew Ye

    More than 8,000 grocery store workers in Colorado have begun a strike against their employer, the Kroger-owned chain King Soopers. Kim Cordova, head of the workers’ union that represents them, joins us to discuss their demands.

    An Awards Season Unlike Any Other with Rebecca Keegan

    Hollywood is going through some massive changes.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Senior Film Editor Rebecca Keegan joins us to discuss what’s going wrong and what the future of the film industry looks like.

    And in headlines: The White House promised 10 million free COVID tests to schools nationwide every month, more than 8,000 grocery store workers at Colorado King Soopers grocery stores went on strike, and inflation climbed to the highest it’s been in 40 years.

    The Test Is In The Mail

    The Test Is In The Mail

    President Biden announced last month that his administration purchased 500 million at-home Covid-19 tests that Americans will be able to order for free. That pledge came while the country was dealing with Omicron, which has only continued to fuel an explosive growth in cases. We answer some of the questions of when and where those tests will become available.

    The U.S. meets with Russia today in Geneva, with other NATO allies set to join throughout the week. It’s a high-stakes conversation, with the Associated Press stating that these talks could “shape the future of not only the [US-Russia] relationship but the relationship between the U.S. and its NATO allies.” 

    And in headlines: A deadly fire in the Bronx killed at least 19 people, the three white men who killed Ahmaud Arbery were all sentenced to life in prison, and Amy Schneider became the first woman on Jeopardy! to win more than a million dollars in a regular season.

    Biden Looks For Mr. Voting Rights Now

    Biden Looks For Mr. Voting Rights Now

    Voting rights have gone back to being the White House’s top priority, but Congress is struggling to pass protections because Senate Democrats must contend with a potential Republican filibuster. 

    Today, the Supreme Court will hear two challenges to the White House’s vaccine mandate for private employers and healthcare facilities. The federal rule was supposed to take effect January 4 but the Occupational Safety and Health Administration decided that it would give employers until February 9th to fully enforce these rules.

    And in headlines: Former health advisors to President Biden are calling for the U.S. to adopt a new COVID strategy, dozens of protestors were killed and hundreds were injured yesterday in Kazakhstan, and the FBI arrested a man who allegedly impersonated publishers to steal unpublished book manuscripts.
