Today on The Current:

Like many people with loved ones in long-term care homes, Wayne Moriarty hasn't seen his 92-year-old father Paul since March. But with B.C. easing restrictions, he tells guest host Nahlah Ayed that he's counting down the days. Ayed talks to Moriarty, as well as Esther Hladkowicz, and Laura Tamblyn Watts of CanAge, about reuniting families, and the essential care their visits bring.

Plus, so long Segway. Just as demand for "micro mobility" increases, the last of the two-wheeled, self-balancing personal transporters are rolling off the production line. Technology writer Mark Wilson and former Chief Planner for Vancouver Brent Toderian weigh in. 

All summer long, The Current is airing some of the most critically-acclaimed CBC podcasts. We continue today with episode three of Uncover: Satanic Panic. Click here to find out more about each podcast, or skip ahead to hear more.
