One of the most recognizable album covers in music is the subject of a new lawsuit alleging it constituted child pornography. Spencer Elden is suing over Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album cover in which he is pictured as a naked baby 30 years ago. In his lawsuit, Elden said that having him swim toward a dollar on a fishhook makes him look like a sex worker. Chris Willman, features editor at Variety, joins us for how that album cover came to be and the new lawsuit.

Next, Delta Air Lines has upped its game in the vaccine pressure campaign. Stopping short of a mandate, Delta has said that unvaccinated employees will have their health insurance premiums increased by $200 a month. They cited the high cost of treating employees who have been hospitalized which averages out to $50,000 per person. Leslie Josephs, airline reporter at CNBC, joins us for more.

Finally, the intelligence community has provided President Biden with a report on the origins of Covid-19 and it was inconclusive. Furthermore, the WHO team that was also looking into the start of the pandemic warned that time is running out and it could soon be biologically impossible to obtain the data needed to nail down the cause. Betsy McKay, senior writer at the WSJ, joins us for ongoing delays into the search for the pandemic origins.
