This Week on MNN: Highs and Lows

This weekend was full of celebration and sorrow as runners finished the NYC marathon and Texas churchgoers lost their lives to gun violence. We know it can be overwhelming to process the constant breaking news cycle so we hope MNN programming adds some much needed stability and comfort to your week.

This week, check out new episodes of “The Kristal Hart Show,” “The Facts,” “Gotta Run With Will,” “Ginger New York,” and “Blunt Squad TV.”
