Today on The Current

Cities and even countries around the world are being plunged back into lockdowns and strict distancing measures, as COVID-19 cases rise. We discuss new measures to correct what went wrong in Australia — and discuss what Canada can learn from their experience.

And all summer long The Current is airing some of the most critically-acclaimed CBC podcasts. We continue today with episode four 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.
