Today we’re getting caught up on Russia’s war in Ukraine. Putin’s announced he’ll draft 300,000 Russian reservists to fight in that conflict. Is this the moment we look back on as the moment he overreached? Then, the Food and Drug Administration issued new guidance on some drugs used to reverse opioid overdoses that would make the life-saving drugs more accessible. Also, we got an update from listeners about our SodaStream/beer query!
Here’s everything we talked about today:
- “‘A Lot of Panic’: Russian Men, Fearing Ukraine Draft, Seek Refuge Abroad” from The New York Times
- “Putin’s Order for 300,000 Fighters Drives Russians to the Streets in Protest” from Bloomberg
- “Opioid-Reversal Drug Access to Ease Under Relaxed FDA Rules” from Bloomberg Law
- Tweet from our listeners @ToddAlstrom and @ClsScience
