Today we revisit some of our favorite conversations from this past week. First, we hear from nurses on the front lines and in academia on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting their field of work.

We also listen back to the challenges of remote work, and whether it’s the new future employers should learn to adjust to.

The shoreline along Lake Michigan is eroding. Today we revisit our discussion with a researcher about why it's happening and how it affects Hoosiers who live near the lakefront.

We also learn about honeybees, to find out how we can help protect these important pollinators. And we wrap up with a discussion on why some companies can't decide whether working from home will work for them.

Most Americans who have used their homes to work remotely in the past year won’t be eligible to claim a tax deduction for home-related work expenses – even if they haven’t stepped foot in an office since March.

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, many people who would otherwise have to report to work in person began working from home. And while it’s common for self-employed workers to claim deductions related to their home office workspaces, most American workers don’t actually qualify.
