There's a lot of explanation in Friday's show. We start by explaining a U.S. appeals court ruling regarding a controversial data collection program by the National Security Agency. We also explain why it's hard to assess the number of tornadoes that struck in several states this week. And we explain why some people may be more prone to mosquito bites than others. Explanations on vertical farms and shaking dog paintings wraps up this week's commercial-free coverage.
