Bonus Episode: COVID-19 Update with Dr. Hannah Lichtsinn #16 The delta variant of COVID-19 is now the dominant strain in Minnesota.

And we couldn't resist a little gymnastics talk after St. Paul's Suni Lee won gold a few hours before we recorded!

18. Professional Sick Person ft. Steve Romenesko We've heard the phrase "immunocompromised" a lot in the last year (plus), usually in the context of who may have additional risks when it comes to COVID-19.

Steve shares his twenty-year and counting story with us, and sheds some light on new research about the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines in transplant patients.
