This week on the Bloomington Buzz we talk a little bit about some of the major U.S. Supreme Court decisions that happened recently, including President Donald Trump's travel ban and Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement.

We also have IU Professor Andrew Weaver talking about the recent decision by the World Health Organization to include a new classification of "gaming disorder" which can be caused by excessively playing video games online. Weaver has a few critiques of the classification and a few thoughts to help people understand it.
