Hey guys, it’s me, Brent! I don’t usually write these things, but Travis is at San Diego Comic Con this week, so it’s up to me to tell you what’s going on in this episode. And WHAT AN EPISODE IT IS! We have Beyond the Headlines with Brent and Travis, but then we’re joined by Gizmodo Science Editor Maddie Stone to catch up on trending science stories from the past few weeks. And we also have Rachel Stine returning to fill us in on some trending political stories in a rare Travis-less Politics Roundup!
