The Vaccine Trust Problem
by The Daily
WOW. This is big. Episode starts by quoting a survey done in late May by the Associated Press: “Fifty percent of Americans were either hesitant or absolutely would not take the vaccine.” Scariest takeaway was: how the COVID-19 vaccine is received will affect the very future of public health.
Threats From Home: The Chinese Consulate Scam
by The Perfect Scam
Finally! An episode that got to the bottom of this. As a Chinese person living in a Chinese-dense area, I always get these mandarin robocalls voicemails but unsure what they would be about. This episode digs into this and also covers the in-person scams in Chinatowns targeting vulnerable monolingual seniors 😢

by What'd You Miss This Week
I first heard of VSCO Girls because my daughter noticed I had the photo editing app on my iPad. “YOU have VSCO? Seriously?” The first item in this collection of short interviews is with an exec from VSCO discussing the mission and vision of their photo app and the impact on their business of the VSCO Girl trend. Really interesting to hear him describe the value of VSCO as creating a creative place free of likes and comments, when VSCO Girls exist in the world of Instagram and TikTok.
