    On today's show, we're talking about these headlines:

    1. None of the cops who shot Breonna Taylor were charged over her death.

    2. The Senate GOP investigated the Bidens' actions toward Ukraine and found...nothing new.

    3. BTS fans have been breaking records by donating to public radio stations after the group played a Tiny Desk Concert with NPR.

    4. And Anne Helen Petersen, author of the new book Can’t Even: How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation, joins us to talk about why we’re all so damn tired.
