We'll also debate Apple's App Store's transformation in response to the EU's new digital legislation (DMA), and shine a spotlight on North Korea's clandestine munitions moves. Our journey doesn't stop there; we're also exposing the U.S. investigation into the data security implications of Chinese cars, and giving you insider access to the courtroom drama between Elon Musk and OpenAI.

Prepare for a roller-coaster of emotions as we wander through the drought-ridden farms of Catalonia and hear the stories of those fighting against the rising Mediterranean temperatures and the environmental toll it's taking.
