In this week's episode, we head to the U.S. Capitol, where Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy makes his case for U.S. support in the fight against Russia.

Next, we take a close look at a manipulated video of President Zelenskyy, and learn how to spot a “deepfake.”

Then, we meet a student in California who has found his voice with the help of some groundbreaking tech. That got us wondering: What piece of technology would you create to help people?
