To The Moon?: New Boosters, Artemis 1, MoviePass 2.0

Sep 1, 2022
  • First: We’ve got the breakdown on some of this week’s headlines, from UN inspectors on the ground at a nuclear plant in Ukraine, to an unfolding water crisis wreaking havoc on residents in Jackson, Mississippi.

  • Next: Even though it’s the end of summer, the FDA is gearing up for another COVID Winter. We spoke to a doctor about the new booster shots that could be available as soon as next week, and how they’re different from the shots you already have. 

  • Also: NASA’s still trying to shoot for the moon, after aborting a rocket mission on Monday. Ahead of liftoff on Saturday, we’ll explain why we’re headed back to our closest celestial neighbor and what it means for the future of space exploration all…in 60 seconds.

  • Finally: MoviePass is back…and it’s giving strong “movie theaters aren’t dead” energy. We’ll talk to an entertainment reporter about what’s changed since their last attempt at changing the movie ticket game.
