Today on The Current:

Studies have found allergy season is getting longer and more intense, and experts are blaming climate change. To learn more about the amped-up allergy season, Matt Galloway speaks with Cecilia Sierra Heredia, lecturer at the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University, and Anne Ellis, a professor of medicine and chair of the Division of Allergy and Immunology at Queen's University.

Then, we bring you a classic story from the Vinyl Cafe: Stuart McLean's Odd Jobs.

And in her new book Fuzz: When Nature Breaks The Law, Mary Roach explores the world of animal crime. She says although we're trying all sorts of things to deal with human-wildlife conflict, we're mostly failing because it's human behaviour that needs to change.
