@ListenToSassy no luck finding it on the apple podcast app... @perpetua saw a few good shows there and had some fun times in the upstairs ping-pong room but yeah, this news is generally a shrug from me.

@Julio_PenaBK @emanney So by education workers they mean k-12 only? Does preschool count? Or daycare workers? @sarahmary The number of times I say “headphones — what a concept” to people doing shit like this is just astonishing. @Julio_PenaBK Nothing detailed beyond “teachers and education workers” on that site. So guessing university profs count? @Julio_PenaBK Do university professors count as education workers?
