In hour two of Here & Now's Dec. 7, 2017 full broadcast, wildfires are still raging in Southern California, where more than 100,000 people have been forced to evacuate. We get the latest from KPCC's Alex Cohen. Also, "SMILF" executive producer, director, writer and star Frankie Shaw joins us to discuss the new Showtime series, about a single mom struggling to raise her son in South Boston. And decades of limestone mining beneath Kansas City has left an impressive network of underground caves. Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd pays a visit to see how businesses are using the millions of square feet of space — from storing old Hollywood films to preserving rare stamps to putting the finishing touches on brand-new trucks.
