On today's show:
- The Burkini is a swimsuit that opened up possibilities for Muslim women to enjoy the beach, while not violating their religious traditions for dress. After a series of terrorist attacks, French cities like Nice and Cannes have banned the clothing. We talk about the controversy with Dr. Farid Hafez of the University of Salzburg.
- We discuss the new film Kubo and the Two Strings with the film's director.
- Global citizen Nari Safavi gives us his picks for the weekend.
