  • 1522 - The Results From The Most Recent Round Of Primaries

    Voters in Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Minnesota, and Texas cast their ballots in key primaries this week.

    Ongoing political battles are providing a compelling backdrop for this year's contests.

    Strict voting laws in Alabama and Georgia had Democrats worried about turnout.

    And Republicans have spent a lot of time this election season vying for the support of Donald Trump's base, shifting their rhetoric further and further right.

    We discuss what insights we can glean from the results in Alabama and Georgia.

  • 1521 - Are Robots The Solution To Understaffed Nursing Homes?

    For many, the pandemic has exposed cracks in our long-term care systems — from staffing shortages to chronic loneliness among residents.

    What if a robot could fix both?

    A program at the University of Minnesota-Duluth is using automation technology to find out.

    The notion of using robots in nursing homes also raises ethical issues about data, privacy, and the importance of human-to-human contact.

    We talk with Dr. Khan and others about the intersection of technology and geriatric care.

  • 1520 - What Do Abortion Bans Mean For Miscarriage Care?

    At least 10 percent of pregnancies end in a miscarriage, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

    But those are just the ones doctors know about. Some estimates put that number much higher to account for all the times a person didn't realize they were pregnant.

    The care for a miscarriage is often identical to an induced abortion. With the Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, some doctors are raising the alarm about how that could affect routine miscarriage care.

  • 1518 - 'Joy Luck Club' To 'Pachinko': The Asian Diaspora On-Screen

    From "Turning Red" to "Pachinko" to "After Yang," it's been a big year for stories about the Asian diaspora.

    Even so, the entertainment industry — and the projects it greenlights — remains overwhelmingly white.

    A new book chronicles Asian-American contributions to pop culture — from the problematic to the groundbreaking. It's called "Rise: A Pop History of Asian America from the Nineties to Now."

    We talk with Yang, sociologist Nancy Wang Yuen, and "Pachinko" director Soo Hugh about telling stories of the Asian diaspora.
