In hour one of Here & Now's Nov. 20, 2017 full broadcast, we get the latest from Germany, where talks to form a new government have collapsed after Chancellor Angela Merkel's two-party bloc won the election in September without the majority needed to form a new government on its own. Also, The Atlantic's Derek Thompson joins us to discuss how changes in the retail world could affect the holiday season this year and beyond. And when you think back to your grade school history lessons, what do you remember about the story of Thanksgiving? Odds are those memories might involve Plymouth Rock. We take a trip to the landmark and take a closer look at what it means to different people. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
