On today’s show we covered a few news stories, leading with an article from The Atlantic on soy and the topic of man boobs, followed by recent research on red meat and heart health, and we’ll end with three news pieces on animals impacted by disasters — companion animals in Wuhan, China, and two stories from Australia as that country starts to assess the damage from the bushfires.
