  • Rogue Trip | Available Friday, July 24 | Disney+ – Hosted by father and son duo Bob and Mack Woodruff, the ABC correspondent takes guests on an adventure that sheds light on the dirt beneath the nails that comes with world travels and the often-overlooked regions. Bob, who was injured by an explosion while reporting in Iraq during 2006, hopes to use the series as a great way to inspire travel—rather than a fear of the world outside our homes. This hopeful series is the perfect travel companion for anyone looking to explore the world from home and learn about misunderstood areas of the world.
  • Radioactive | Available Friday, July 24 | Amazon Prime Following the death of her late husband, the inspiring story of Marie Curie’s life is chronicled in this biographical adaptation. Watch on as Curie’s dedication to science finds her entrenched in previously unknown radioactive elements. The internal conflict is evident with Curie’s realization that her discoveries could mean life-saving medicines—or in the wrong hands, military uses that stand to kill just as many. Try Amazon Prime free for 30 days.
