Today on The Current

Kids will be back in schools across Canada in a month, but how will that happen safely? Today we start No Easy Answers — our new series on education in the time of COVID-19 — hearing from a parent and a teacher about their concerns.

Then, it's almost time for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to announce his running mate. Political analyst Rebecca Sive talks us through the list of women candidates he's considering, and who could end up a heartbeat away from the Oval Office.

And all summer long The Current is airing some of the most critically-acclaimed CBC podcasts. We continue today with episode two of Unlocking Bryson's Brain, about a family's journey to understand their son's rare condition, and the search for the miracle key that might mean a cure.
