In the Moment: The ongoing politics of pandemic policy

White House

On today's show

We discuss the emerging policies of pandemics and public health. Is a mandatory mask mandate on public transportation an overreach by the CDC? What about a border policy (still in place) that the CDC says has no public health benefit? Political scientists David Wiltse, Ph.D., and Lisa Hager, Ph.D., weigh in for our Dakota Political Junkies political analysis.

We also explore the science of skin, the early personalities of South Dakota broadcasting, and the organ music of eastern Europe.
