Today on The Current:

Students aren't the only ones frustrated by changes to campus learning brought on by the pandemic with many university professors also being lukewarm about another semester of e-learning. David Robinson, executive director of the Canadian Association of University Teachers says students shouldn't pay the same tuition fees for online classes and that e-learning contributes to a reduced university experience. Then, Alison Evans, director of member and public relations with Universities Canada says she appreciates students' tuition concerns, but schools also need to find a way to remain financially viable.

And all summer long The Current is airing some of the most critically-acclaimed CBC podcasts. Today we're listening to episode one of This is Not a Drake Podcast, a series about the rapper the world sees as the face of Toronto, but is really about the city's hip-hop scene most people don't know about — the one that made Drake.
