The Loop: Gen X becomes generation AZ

Generation X stepped up in a big way this week when Albertans in the demographic became eligible for the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine.

Dr. Lynora Saxinger, a University of Alberta infectious diseases specialist, talks with us about the meteoric uptake of the AZ shot and how this could shift Alberta’s third wave.

Plus we mark Earth Week with a tour of a local shop that’s making small changes for big sustainability, and we get some tips about ways to reduce our waste.

Finally, associate producer Patrick Connolly takes us south of the equator to meet an Oilers’ fan in the unlikeliest of places.
