Here to talk us through the disruptions in the supply chain is Millie Munshi, an agriculture editor at Bloomberg. She’ll tell us how we got here and which items might still be missing from your store for a while.
Plus, we’ll talk about Molly’s upcoming Wired column and an economic meltdown we narrowly avoided. Listen through to the end for stories from listeners struggling to get small business loans and trying to cope while sheltering in place.
