One More Thing: Netflix's New Reality Dating Show Is Outrageous and People Can't Stop Watching

Netflix has another hit in its hands with the reality dating show Love is Blind.The premise is that people will connect emotionally with each other by sitting in secluded pods and talking with one another without ever seeing each other.They fall in love on a deeper level and get engaged within a matter of days.The rest of the show is a test if their love can last in the real world, leading to their wedding a month later.Conversation about the show has taken off on social media with many thinking it’s a train wreck, but only wanting more.For more on why this crazy experiment has taken off, we will talk to Amelia Harnish, contributor to the WSJ.

The Noah's Ark of Citrus and COVID-19 Keeps Spreading

It is being called the Noah’s Ark of citrus, The Givaudan Citrus Variety Collection at UC Riverside in California and it has over 1,000 different citrus specimens.But one thing that could destroy it all, is the bacterial infection known as citrus greening which kills trees and produces inedible fruit.Citrus greening has caused over $2 billion in losses in Florida and worries are that it could also ruin things in California.The infection is transmitted by small insects, so the only way to keep them out is to put nets and screens around the trees.Gustavo Arellano, reporter at the LA Times, joins us for the effort to save citrus from greening. Next, we have the first possible instance of community exposure of COVID-19 in northern California.A woman has been infected and she did not travel to the heart of the outbreak in China, or have contact with anyone that had the virus.It is concerning because it could be a sign that it is spreading in the community and it is tough to track who might have had contact with this woman.President Trump has set up a COVID-19 task force led by Mike Pence to handle the federal response but it continues to seem that coronavirus will continue its spread.Erin Allday, health writer at the San Francisco Chronicle, joins us for what to know about the latest case.

Who Are the Non-Voters and Why Do They Choose to Not Cast a Ballot?

In 2016, nearly 100 million eligible Americans did not cast a vote for president.These are the non-voters, a huge number of voters that could be influential if they mobilized, but they choose not to. The Knight Foundation has now released the results of “The 100 Million Project,” the largest survey of chronic non-voters.In a nutshell, these people are less white, less educated, poorer, younger, and more likely to be women.Evette Alexander, Director of Learning and Impact at the Knight Foundation, joins us for why so many people choose not to vote, and if they were to vote, who would benefit the most for their turnout. Next, we will talk about the strange world of cheerleading music.With the success of the Netflix Docuseries Cheer, more people are taking a look into the world of cheerleading and one thing that stands out is the music accompanying the high flying routines.Gone are the days of simple rhyming chants, modern cheer squads are performing to club-like tracks full of EDM drops, pump-up raps, and laser beam samples.Cheer music still has to abide by copyright laws and music licensing and it has spurred a whole new industry that makes original music for top cheer teams.Duncan Cooper, music journalist and former editor of the Fader, joins us for the world of cheer music.

Bernie Sanders Is the Frontrunner and Transplant Organs Missing in Transit

After winning by a wide margin in the Nevada Caucuses, Bernie Sanders has cemented his frontrunner status in the Democratic nominating process so far.The fight moves on to South Carolina and Super Tuesday, but in the meantime, establishment Democrats are nervous that Sanders may be too far to the left and could not defeat President Trump in a general election.Ginger Gibson, political reporter for Reuters, joins us for this and more disagreement between the administration and the intelligence community. Next, lifesaving organs, mostly kidneys, that are scheduled for transplants are trashed each year and many are critically delayed after being shipped on commercial airlines.There is no national system to transfer organs from one region to another and is instead left to 58 non-profit organizations to collect the organs and package them.From there, if the organ needs to make a trip, they rely on commercial couriers and airlines to get it to its destination.And missed connections and delays could endanger the use of the organ if it doesn’t arrive in time.JoNel Aleccia, senior correspondent at Kaiser Health News, joins us for how some organs go missing in transit.
