NewsDepth 2021-2022 | Episode 26

In this week's episode, we take a look back at what we missed over break: a new Supreme Court justice, a first for NASA, and a new diplomatic punishment for Russia at the United Nations.  

Next, we crack open an egg-cellent story about the ancient Ukrainian tradition of pysanka.    

Then, baseball is back! We cover a historic first on first base at San Francisco’s Oracle Park, and a new season – with a new name – in Cleveland.   

Finally, we celebrate Earth Day by talkin’ trash – specifically, how one artist is using it to spread an environmental message.
