In hour two of Here & Now's Jan. 16, 2018 full broadcast, lawmakers have just four days left to reach a spending agreement before federal funding runs out and the government shuts down. NPR's Susan Davis discusses the latest from Washington, including DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Also, pork can be so much more than the dry, flavorless meat many of us might remember, according to our resident chef. And we speak with Collette and Scott Stohler, who gave up their respective careers in engineering and ad production to become "travel influencers."
