Description

South Dakota's governor Kristi Noem is a Republican rising star who signed two executive orders on Monday that bar transgender girls and women from participating in K-12 and college sports. It's just one of the moves Noem has made to gain favor ahead of the 2024 election. Plus, President Biden and his CDC director brace for a potential spike in coronavirus cases.

This episode: congressional correspondent Susan Davis, senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro, science editor Rob Stein, and South Dakota Public Radio's Lee Strubinger.
