September 12, 2017: Hour 2
In hour two of Here & Now's Sept. 12, 2017 full broadcast, we continue Irma coverage with the latest from Jacksonville and the Florida Keys, and a closer look at how the media has covered both that storm and Harvey. Also, we hear from one BBC reporter who traveled to a Libyan migrant detention camp and talked to the people housed there who described the living conditions as hellish. And, we speak with the astronaut whose lifelong dream of traveling to space was slightly sidetracked by trying out for the U.S. Olympic team in luge and becoming an emergency room doctor.
September 12, 2017: Hour 1
In hour one of Here & Now's Sept. 12, 2017 full broadcast, NPR's Kirk Siegler gives us an update on Irma cleanup and rescue efforts underway in South Florida and the Florida Keys. Also, political analyst Angela Rye joins us to assess Hillary Clinton's new memoir, and Clinton's argument that sexism, James Comey and Russian election interference were partly to blame for her 2016 election loss. And, Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd sits down with Seth and Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers to talk about a new film about the making of the band's Grammy-nominated album, "True Sadness."
