Today was the first day back to school for a bunch of kids, and Zoom crashed. California is burning again. Police shot another Black man on camera. And a man in China was reinfected with COVID-19. The bad news keeps coming back to haunt us. Even pumpkin spice.
Here’s a list of everything we talked about today:
- “Remote Learning Is a Bad Joke” from The Atlantic
- The latest on protests in Wisconsin after police shot Jacob Blake from NPR
- “First coronavirus reinfection documented in Hong Kong, researchers say” from the Washington Post
- “Pumpkin Spice Hard Seltzer Is Here” from October
- Finally, this good girl:
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.
