Today on The Current:

  • Barry was downgraded to a tropical depression on Sunday, but that doesn't mean the threat is over for the Gulf Coast U.S. states. We speak to people on the ground who are trying to cope with power outages and flash-flood warnings.
  • Fifty years after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin first set foot on the moon, some scientists are arguing that we should preserve our space heritage the way we would any historical site on Earth. We look at the push to protect historical sites that are out of this world.
  • We continue our summer podcast season with award-winning CBC podcast Uncover: Escaping NXIVM. In episode six: we hear Keith Raniere's side of the story, through his lawyer, Marc Agnifilo.
