A very-happy happy hour

On tap today: The U.S. Navy, reopening local economies, and... New Yorker cartoons? TGIF.

First of all, we have to kick off this episode with a BIG thank you.

In just two days, 230 of you donated to support the show. If you wanna join that group, here’s the link. Also on tap today: the continuing scandal in the U.S. Navy, how to reopen local economies and … New Yorker cartoons? This is public radio after all.

By the way, if you’re enjoying a beverage during the show this Friday afternoon, let us know! Here’s some of our favorite comments from last week.

None of us is as smart as all of us.

No matter how bananapants your day is, “Make Me Smart” is here to help you through it all— 5 days a week.

It’s never just a one-way conversation. Your questions, reactions, and donations are a vital part of the show. And we’re grateful for every single one.
