On this episode of the Gap, Tammy and Althea talk about the lastest COVID news, like the Supreme Court blocking the large employer vaccine mandate, the Oregon Department of Justice investigating a for-profit COVID testing center, and new research from OSU that suggests cannabinoids could help fight COVID infection. 

Then, we ask our listeners what they look for in their legislators and what the merits of a debate. The RNC is considering banning its candidates from participating in future bipartisan debates, alleging that they are unfair. We consider if it's worth it to have debates at all, and other things that influence how we see political candidates. Corporate money, compassion and integrity in their relationships are big ones!

Thank you to everyone who called in!
