In hour one of Here & Now's Oct. 18, 2017 full broadcast, we look at the latest in politics news from the week with NPR's Domenico Montanaro, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions' testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Also we learn more about Daphne Caruana Galizia, the 53-year-old journalist who was assassinated in Malta in a car bombing earlier this week. And, in her memoir "Real American," author Julie Lythcott-Haims writes that growing up as the child of an African-American father and a white mother, she struggled with feelings of inadequacy and anger as her parents chose to raise her in predominantly white towns. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
