Episode Notes

On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, a $26 billion settlement was reached with four major drug companies for their role in the American opioid epidemic. We address the state of the crisis and whether or not the settlement goes far enough.

Then, are Americans content in the workplace? We take a look at Gallup's State of the Global Workplace: 2021 Report and discuss the role of the COVID-19 pandemic.

And, we call it “E.T. versus Einstein.” This week’s fun fact is out of this world.
