Can We Reach Herd Immunity by September?

Impressive in-depth stories
I’ve been really impressed with the level of research the Capital Daily does on its stories and the podcast reflects this. My only (minor) criticism is that I think that some stories, like The Man Who Stole a Hotel, might be better if you stuck to the same format as the print story and simply read that, with inserts of interviews or sound bites from some of the people who were interviewed for the story...not sure the podcast host interviewing the story writer worked as well for this particular episode but that’s really a small quibble. It’s just a matter of preference and not enough for me to downgrade my review to less than the well-earned five stars!
Love this podcast!
Big fan here of the Capital Daily podcast. I listen to almost every episode and love feeling like I know what is going on in town and on the island. It is an invaluable resource in a media environment that is often severely lacking in local news. Thanks for the great work!
