Download Audio

In hour two of Here & Now's June 7, 2017 full broadcast, President Trump has named his nominee to lead the FBI — just a day before former FBI Director James Comey is set to testify before Congress. We hear from NPR's Phil Ewing about Trump's nominee, Christopher Wray, and what to expect from Comey on Thursday. Also, Thursday marks the start of the third "Race to Alaska," a 750-mile marathon with two basic rules: no motors and no support crews. We'll hear from several people competing. And we return to Louisiana for the final part of our series on the state's vanishing coast, plus we check in with resident chef Kathy Gunst for summer soup recipes that go beyond clam chowder.
