In this week's episode, we take a look at early voting around Ohio and the vice-presidential debate. Then we learn the history of expanding voting rights in  Politics on Point.

Next, we head outdoors. Apple picking is underway and an invasive insect is threatening the maple industry.

Margaret explains the difference between weathering, erosion, and deposition on the shores of Lake Erie in  Spot on Science. And we see a big example of weathering when Massachusetts' Balancing Rock finally falls over.

Plus, families in Sweden are deciding how they feel about a COVID vaccine.
