  • By all measures, 2020 was an extraordinary election year. Record-setting voter turnout, a tsunami-like surge in mail-in ballots and deep partisan rancor - all amid a global pandemic. These factors posed unprecedented challenges for elections officials across North Carolina and the country. In many places, private donations helped pay for things like hand sanitizer and other support efforts. Host Rusty Jacobs looks at a proposed law that would stop private donations like this, and at the deeper issues of how we run elections in the US.
  • Unvaccinated Covid-19 patients have flooded hospitals around North Carolina. Because of the surge, many vaccinated patients who go to the hospital needing treatment for non-Covid-19 illnesses feel they aren't getting the same level of care they would normally get. Host Jason deBruyn looks at the ethics of triaging vaccinated and unvaccinated patients - something health providers and health ethicists are having to hash out in real time.
