What even is sunscreen and how does it screen the sun?

This week Melissa and Jam explore the chemistry of not being burned by the big, ominous, flaming ball of radioactive insanity that lights up our skies each day. Did you know that to some people, radiation burns are no big deal? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It's actually a very big deal and the sun is constantly trying to kill us all. Save yourselves.
