A rise in substance abuse in the Hispanic community, more COVID-19 booster shots and data and a history lesson about Nevada’s quirky state symbols

This week, host Joey Lovato talks to reporter Jannelle Calderón about a rise in Hispanic overdose deaths during the pandemic. Afterward, we talk about another health issue: Reporters Tabitha Mueller and Da Yeon sit down with Joey to go over who can get a second COVID-19 booster shot and why the state is changing how it reports on COVID numbers. Lastly, Joey visits the Nevada Historical Society to learn more about the significance behind many state symbols.
