On The VICE Guide to Right Now, VICE's new daily podcast, we delve into the biggest news of the day and give you a rundown of the stories we're reading, working on, and fascinated with.

Today we take a quick look at the headlines, including Trump's trip to South Korea, where he simultaneously plugged his golf course and condemned North Korea. In Spain, the Constitutional Court annulled Catalonia's referendum for independence. And back in the US, the Democratic Party had historic wins in elections across the country, including Virginia's Danica Roem, who became the first openly trans person elected as a state legislator.

Then we check in with Motherboard ahead of its new series, How Hacking Works. Cyber security journalist Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai explains the idea behind the themed week, aimed at helping anyone who uses the internet keep data safe.
