Hey look, everything at Facebook is definitely, totally fine!

We'll unpack a well-timed Sun Valley photo op on today's show. Plus: COVID boosters, the Olympics and NYC subway floodwater.

We’ll unpack that on today’s show, plus we’ll discuss COVID boosters, the Olympics and New York City subway floodwater.

Here’s everything we talked about today:
