Today on The Current:

Climate protesters are resorting to stronger tactics to highlight what they see as government inaction, such as interrupting the Tour de France or gluing themselves to famous paintings. Guest host Anthony Germain talks to Emma Brown of Just Stop Oil, a coalition of climate activist groups; and Roberta Lexier, a professor who researches social movements and activism at Mount Royal University in Calgary. 

Then, we talk to Dr. Anthony Fauci about the COVID-19 pandemic, the lessons he learned from the fight against HIV/AIDS, and what the world needs to do to get rising monkeypox cases under control. 

And we hear episode three of CBC podcast Welcome to Paradise, in which Anna Maria Tremonti breaks a decades-long silence about her experience with intimate partner violence. Read more about our summer podcast series here.
