Soon, all Americans will be eligible to get a COVID-19 booster shot. One of our listeners is wondering whether getting her booster means taking one from somebody in a developing country. We’ll explain why the vaccine supply chain makes that unlikely. Plus, we’ll check in on Kai’s January prediction about the 10-year Treasury note and answer a couple of questions about recycling and meal kits.
Here’s everything we talked about today:
- “Why donating COVID-19 booster shots isn’t that easy” from National Geographic
- “Treasury yields turn flat after disappointing jobs data” from CNBC
- “Piling Up: How China’s Ban on Importing Waste Has Stalled Global Recycling” from Yale Environment 360
- “Meal Kits Have A Smaller Carbon Footprint Than Grocery Shopping, Study Says” from NPR
- “The Case for Meal Kits: Environment’s Friend or Foe?” from EcoWatch
- “What common household items are worth recycling?” from Marketplace
