Today on The Current

  • We visit a heat lab in Montreal, where scientists are testing the tricks we all use to keep cool. They're looking for the science behind how we cope when the mercury is rising.
  • An Air Canada flight en route to Australia made an emergency landing in Hawaii Thursday, after a violent encounter with what's called clear air turbulence. We speak to an expert who says that climate change might make that a more common problem.
  • We continue our summer podcast season with award-winning CBC podcast Uncover: Escaping NXIVM. In episode five: Sarah decides to flee the group — and warn others.
