  • The Role Facebook Played in the Attack on the U.S. Capitol 2021-10-26
    The Role Facebook Played in the Attack on the U.S. Capitol This week, Facebook is facing its latest round of scrutiny after a collaboration involving journalists from 17 American newsrooms started publishing a series of stories that they are calling The Facebook Papers. These newsrooms are sifting through thousands of pages of internal documents initially obtained by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, who testified earlier this month before a Senate subcommittee. The New York Times report shows that employees repeatedly raised red flags about the mismanagement of content and far-right groups. For more on this, The Takeaway speaks with Ryan Mac, technology reporter at The New York Times.

  • Cost of Naloxone Soars as Overdose-Related Deaths Surge 2021-10-25
    Cost of Naloxone Soars as Overdose-Related Deaths Surge As the coronavirus pandemic ravaged communities across the U.S., another epidemic was quietly unfolding in the background: the opioid overdose crisis. For the past two decades, the drug epidemic has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives in the country. Recent data indicates that things have gotten worse during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the CDC, around 100,000 people died of overdoses during the first year of the pandemic, the majority of which were opioid-related. That’s a 30 percent increase from the year before. For more on this, The Takeaway spoke with Melody Schreiber, a contributor to the Guardian US and editor of the book What We Didn't Expect: Personal Stories About Premature Birth.  How 'Dopesick' Creator Danny Strong Brought the Opioid Epidemic to the Screen The new Hulu miniseries “Dopesick” takes a comprehensive overview of the opioid epidemic, following the rise of Purdue Pharma and the Sackler family, while also spotlighting the communities whose members have dealt with opioid addiction. Danny Strong joined The Takeaway to discuss why he brought this story to the screen and what he wants people to learn about the opioid epidemic. Affirming Housing for LGBTQ-SGL Elders For the second installment of our Aging While Queer series, Dr. Imani Woody joined to discuss the importance of affirming housing for LGBTQ-SGL elders and how Mary’s House is due to open its doors in 2023 after over a decade of planning and fund-raising. As a long-time advocate for marginalized populations, Dr. Imani decided to create a safe space for the aging members of the LGBTQ-SLG (same-gender-loving) community.  For transcripts, see individual segment pages.

  • Why Offshore Oil Drilling is So Bad For The Environment 2021-10-21
    Why Offshore Oil Drilling is So Bad For The Environment On October 1, a ruptured pipeline resulted in 25,000 gallons of crude spilling into the Pacific Ocean near Orange County, California. While the spill wasn’t as bad as initially feared, it reignited a debate over offshore drilling. California has an aging pipeline infrastructure with questionable federal oversight. And this wasn't the only large oil spill this year. Less than a month ago, after Hurricane Ida, a federal satellite detected the most oil spills from space in the Gulf of Mexico after a weather event. The federal government started using satellites to track spills and leaks starting a decade ago. The Takeaway spoke with Catherine Kilduff, Senior Attorney at The Center for Biological Diversity, and Wilma Subra, who deals with environmental human health issues, on behalf of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network. Biden Administration Plans to Rein In "Forever Chemicals" On Monday, the Biden administration unveiled its plans to rein in so-called “forever chemicals,” or PFAS. PFAS refers to a group of more than 4,000 toxic chemicals that don’t break down in the environment. PFAS are found in everything from our drinking water to our cookware. Even some rain jackets and cosmetics contain PFAS. But PFAS are also hazardous for our health. In fact, they’ve been linked with certain cancers, thyroid disease, and other health impacts, too. For more on this, The Takeaway spoke to Pat Rizzuto, chemicals reporter with Bloomberg Law.  Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach Are Now Running 24/7 Last week, President Biden announced that the Port of Los Angeles will move towards operating 24/7 to address the shipping delays that have led to nationwide supply chain disruptions this year. The Port of Long Beach has also expanded its operations towards a 24/7 schedule in an attempt to solve the supply chain issue. The Takeaway hears from Dr. Afif El-Hasan, Physician-in-Charge at Kaiser Permanente San Juan Capistrano Medical Offices and spokesperson for the American Lung Association, as well as Mario Cordero, the executive director of the Port of Long Beach.
