In hour two of Here & Now's Oct. 24, 2017 full broadcast, we take a closer look at the tiny, for-profit, Montana-based company that has signed a $300 million contract to rebuild Puerto Rico's power grid. Also, a majority of white Americans believe they face discrimination, according to a new poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. We examine this finding and more. And, Danielle Allen's new book "Cuz" is both a deeply moving biography of her cousin, Michael, and a discourse on the country's criminal justice system. We speak with the author. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
