Vulture Capitalists

As Maui residents begin a long mourning and recovery process following deadly fires that have ravaged their neighborhoods, local officials say outsiders are attempting to take advantage of the tragedy by attempting to purchase damaged home sites from locals who have lost everything. Hawaii Gov. Josh Green said Monday he had reached out to the attorney general “to explore options to do a moratorium on any sales of properties that have been damaged or destroyed.” We discuss what should or should not be done in order to protect people during a time of natural disasters. Then we play three headlines and a lie:

  2. A Kansas grocery store now has the top podcast on Spotify
  3. Scientists just discovered a ‘strawberry-like’ antarctic invertebrate with 20 arms
  4. Florida village terrorized by peacocks plans to use vasectomies to solve the problem
