This hour, a smorgasbord of disparate topics: mandates, mammoths, and merch.

First, a look at the state of America’s patchwork of COVID vaccine requirements.

And then: New England’s own Dunkin' has started doing limited-edition merchandise drops. Can normie coffee make itself into a lifestyle brand?

Finally: Scientists are trying to genetically resurrect the woolly mammoth. “Life, uh, finds a way,” and all that.
