We’re on a ‘Groundhog Day’ loop

Some cities are preparing for another round of lockdowns, and we answer more of your questions on this Whadda Ya Wanna Know Wednesday.

As coronavirus cases continue to increase across the nation, some parts of the country are getting ready for a new round of COVID-19 restrictions. We hear from one listener who contracted coronavirus and is wondering what a Biden administration may mean for businesses struggling during the pandemic. Plus: We answer your questions about Trump’s legal bills, why the Fed’s Main Street Lending Program flopped, and Kai and Molly reminisce about the last time they were in the same place together, pre-COVID (sigh).

Here’s a list of everything we talked about today:

Finally: We need your voice memos! Tell us what you think of the show or ask a question for Kai Ryssdal and Molly Wood to answer! Here’s how to do it.

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.
