NewsDepth 2021-2022 | Episode 14

In this week's episode, we hear how a well-known candy manufacturer inspired its hometown to ring in 2022 by putting a sweet spin on a New Year’s tradition – and that got us wondering: what industries are big where you live?    

Next, we head to an Ohio hospital, where staff shortages caused by COVID-19 have led them to take on some surprising new recruits. 

Then we travel to Japan, where girls are wrestling their way into the traditionally-male Sumo world.

Finally, Margaret takes us fossil hunting with scientists from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and we learn about a once-fierce predator that was uncovered in Ohio.
