Description

U.S. government tariffs and Department of Agriculture buying practices helped drive consolidation in the baby formula industry. When a major plant shuttered over contamination concerns in February, the industry was already vulnerable to supply chain threats.

And after decades of reluctance, Finland and Sweden now hope to join NATO, the U.S.-Europe military alliance founded to protect against possible Russian aggression. The change in stance was prompted by Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

This episode: White House correspondent Scott Detrow, chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley, congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell, and white House correspondent Franco Ordoñez.
