From an upcoming family road trip to Star Wars Celebration to the return of Tom Cruise running on the biggest screen possible, here's what we're looking forward to over the next week. Plus, a moment of science returns as Kishore breaks down some new research data about long Covid. Thanks as always for choosing to spend an hour each week hanging out with us.
