It’s Whaddya Wanna Know Wednesday, and Kai Ryssdal and Kimberly Adams are answering your questions, including one from a listener who wonders what the Fed reducing its balance sheet means for mortgage rates. We also dig into what it takes to harness tidal power, and why it’s not a bigger source of renewable energy.
Here’s everything we talked about on the show today:
- “To understand the Fed’s bond-buying dilemma, picture a lake” from Marketplace
- “Hamsterkauf! Coronazeit! There’s a German Word for Your Pandemic Experience” from Slate
