Today we’re breaking down the latest information about Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine. Earlier this week, the U.S. put the use of this particular vaccine on hold because of new questions about a potential rare, but serious, side effect: blood clots in the brain. So what does the data show right now? How worried should we really be about this?

Today we’re talking about what to expect in the high-profile and racially-charged murder trial of Derek Chauvin. The trial begins Monday. Chauvin is a former Minneapolis police officer accused of killing George Floyd on May 25, 2020. A witness video, now seen around the world, appears to show Chauvin using his knee to pin Floyd down on the ground for several minutes. The case sparked nationwide protests and unrest. Now, the world will be watching as a jury hears the case and decides whether Chauvin will be convicted and put in prison or acquitted and allowed to go free.  Today you’ll hear from two guest experts about jury selection, key legal considerations, and the role both video and race may play during this process.   This episode is brought to you by and Ritual.com/newsworthy and Rothys.com/newsworthy Get ad-free episodes by becoming an insider: www.theNewsWorthy.com/insider

Today we’re talking with two of the four people who will be making history later this year as part of the world’s first all-civilian crew going to space. Yes, that means no traditionally-trained astronaut will be on board. First, you’ll hear from Hayley Arceneaux, who will be making history in more ways than one: she’ll also be the first child cancer survivor in space, the first person with a prosthetic body part in space, and, at 29 years old, she’ll be the youngest American to visit space. She was chosen to join the mission by our second guest, Jared Isaacman. He’s the billionaire partnering with SpaceX to make this historic “Inspiration 4” launch possible. He’s also donating and raising millions of dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of the mission.
