NewsDepth 2018-2019 | Episode 23

There is so much to catch up on from spring break! We start off the episode with a news roundup covering President Trump's first veto, California crabbers calling it quits early and new sports up for addition to the Olympics.

Plus, we visit several states to see folks come together to help with spring flooding. Across the globe, in Mozambique flooding has wiped out crops. We see how aid workers are helping there too.

Finally, Margaret Cavalier interviews a geologist in this week's Spot on Science, to find out about Ohio's rocks and history!
