#35 - Chernobyl hostages and sleepy daylight savings

44 mins | Mar 25, 2022

Your audio magazine curated by Ryan Broderick to help you sail into the weekend. This week, we start with a roundup of stories including a new record-breaking bridge in Turkey, school uniform reforms in Tokyo, and what to expect at the Oscars. Our Feature story tells you more about the over 200 workers that were recently held hostage at the defunct Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. The situation remains volatile and is developing. Our first Conversation Starter is right on time with the new spring season. In it, sleep experts question whether the US Senate’s recent decision to switch to daylight savings time permanently is good for people’s bodies. Later, given that it is Lent and some people may change their behaviours, we look at the power of habits, and how to best think about them. 00:01:58- Section 1 - Weekly Roundup 00:03:32 - Section 2 - Feature - Wall Street Journal 00:18:39 - Section 3 - Conversation Starters - The Guardian & Psyche
