This week on RMA-the news you can use. On a special, all-Recovery in the News episode of RMA, Mike and Nat do a deep dive on two timely stories, the first, a critique of the idea of drinking in moderation, and the second on how companies are planning to deal with returning workers who picked up some unfortunate addictions during lockdown.
