Download Audio

In hour one of Here & Now's Oct. 11, 2017 full broadcast, we get a report on the latest from Northern California as the region copes with deadly wildfires from KQED's Lesley McClurg, who's been in the hard-hit city of Santa Rosa. Also, in Cressida Cowell's new novel "The Wizards of Once," readers embark on a series of adventures involving giants, wildcats, sprites, dungeons and magic. And today is National Coming Out Day — something that didn't exist when longtime gay rights activist Cleve Jones came out. We revisit our 2016 conversation with Jones about his memoir "When We Rise: My Life in the Movement." You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
