On Saturday, four Republican-led states will pull out of the federal government’s pandemic-related unemployment benefits program early. Congress hasn't moved on the wage issue at all, either, with Senate GOP members this week blocking the Paycheck Fairness Act.An extreme drought is affecting the West, with the entirety of Oregon, California, Utah, and Nevada under drought conditions, along with parts of other states. Unfortunately, things are expected to heat up and dry out from here, with certain places in the Southwest facing temperatures as high as 120 degrees next week.Plus, we’re joined by comedian and actor Maz Jobrani for headlines: National Geographic says there's a new ocean, Starbucks sees shortages of ingredients, and Kim Jong-Un's body transformation.Show Notes:CNET: "Is your state ending unemployment benefits this weekend?
