Drug companies Pfizer and Moderna have pledged to boost the doses of vaccines delivered after solving some manufacturing issues they had. While they are stepping up production many ask, why can’t we make these doses any faster? Much of the answer in that lies in the very specialized process and raw materials that go into making them. Isaac Arnsdorf, reporter at ProPublica, joins us for more.


Next, security officials that were in charge during the assault on the Capitol on January 6 were testifying before Congress and offered their account of how things went south. There were concerns of “optics” and a mess of conflicting orders that led to hours long delays in mobilizing the National Guard. Anita Kumar, White House correspondent and associate editor at Politico, joins us for more on the Capitol Hill security failures.


Finally, a case in which an organ transplant patient has died after receiving lungs infected with Covid. Initial tests on the donor and lungs came back negative, but after the transplant, the patient fell ill with fever and showed signs of lung infection. Her condition deteriorated and then tests came back positive, she died 61 days after the transplant. JoNel Aleccia, senior correspondent at Kaiser Health News, joins us for this rare and tragic story.

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
