Jason Zackowski with Bunsen Berner

Holy wow.  What a turbulent week.  Events in both Alberta and the United States crept into our life and it was hard to avoid talking about at least the current events for us in our home province.  Also, dominating the news is the SARS-COV-2 variant originating from the UK and so we take a deep dive into what is known about it.  In Pet Science, we take a look a study about the use of robot dogs instead of therapy dogs and if it is as effective!  Our expert guest is Rue Silver, a public health official in New York City.  She shares her expertise about disease factors and equity in a memorable and moving discussion.  Another patron joins us for WOO or WOW and the family section rounds out the week.

Please take care of yourself and others and to our American listeners, we are thinking of you.

For Science, Empathy and Cuteness!
