December 15, 2017: Hour 2

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 14:28:25 -0500

In hour two of Here & Now's Dec. 15, 2017 full broadcast, we take a closer look at what's in the final tax cut plan that Republicans in the House and Senate have negotiated and say they hope to pass next week. Also, holiday TV is known more for its sticky sentimentality than its substance. But even NPR TV critic Eric Deggans has a sweet tooth. And judicial nomination hearings don't often go viral. However, footage of Matthew Spencer Petersen, one of President Trump's nominees to be a district judge for the District of Columbia, was shared widely after Petersen struggled to answer basic legal questions.

November 13, 2017: Hour 1

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 13:52:36 -0500

In hour one of Here & Now's Nov. 13, 2017 full broadcast, reporter Brian Lyman from The Montgomery Advertiser joins us with the latest on how sexual misconduct allegations against GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore are reverberating in Alabama. Also, in a series of paintings as fascinating as they are disturbing, artist Alexis Rockman depicts his vision of the Great Lakes — which he calls "ground zero for the future in terms of freshwater." And one point of contention as the House and Senate push forward on tax overhaul is how to address the estate tax, which applies to inheritances of more than $5.5 million. The Atlantic's Derek Thompson tells us more about arguments for and against cutting the tax.
