What A Day - March 17, 2020 - 28:40

Covid-19 has hit the US economy hard, devastating the stock market and prompting limited hours and layoffs around the country. We talk to Annie Lowrey, a staff writer at the Atlantic, to help us parse the economic impact of the virus. Florida, Illinois, Ohio, and Arizona were set to go to the polls today on yet another important day of voting in the presidential primary. We go through the different ways states are planning to hold a vote (or not) during a pandemic. And in headlines: France fines Apple $1 billion, Starbucks doesn’t want you to stick around, and the SCOTUS postpones arguments due to Covid-19 concerns.
