Mars rover landing and the end of physical money

This week we’ll be talking about three missions to Mars, a surprising discovery at Stonehenge, and the latest political events in the US. Plus, we’ll be having a debate about money.

We record The Week Junior Show from our homes every week. We had a little problem with the connection between everyone this week. Apologies if the audio quality isn't what you usually expect from us – we'll be back to normal next week.

Tell us what you think of the podcast, what your opinion on the Big Debate is, or what's happening in the world around you and we might use your messages in a future podcast episode:
