TMI 07/30/2021 – Fishy Fish – How Subway’s Tuna Scandal Isn’t the Only Seafood Fraud, The Ethics of Forcing People to Work With the Unvaccinated, How Strategy Games Reinforce Colonial White Supremacy

We’ve all heard of Subway’s infamous tunaless tuna sandwich by now – researchers discovered no tuna DNA in the meat of Subway’s famous offering, causing headlines across the country. What hasn’t been reported nearly as much as this is likely not even Subway’s fault: a staggeringly high amount of fish and seafood is being sold mislabeled. We explore the mystery of the fishy fish.

Then, we discuss the ethics of being told that not only MUST you return to the office, versus being able to work from home, but that you may be forced to do so in the company of folks who have refused vaccination against COVID.
