Business Brief podcast logo

This week’s episode of the Business Brief podcast looks at the bicycle industry, which has experienced a stretched supply chain since the beginning of the pandemic. Even as the surging demand seen two years ago decreases, Missouri bike shops still struggle to keep their racks stocked with high-end bikes. 

Then, David Slusky, an economist at the University of Kansas, joins the podcast to discuss what Missouri’s recent ban on abortion means for the business environment in the state.
