Download Audio

In hour one of Here & Now's Jan. 29, 2018 full broadcast, we speak with an infectious disease expert about how this brutal flu season compares to what doctors and health officials have seen in the past. Also, how does a gecko manage to walk on the ceiling? And what happens when a dog shakes water off its coat? We get answers from Matin Durrani and Liz Kalaugher, the authors of "Furry Logic: The Physics of Animal Life." And The Atlantic's Derek Thompson joins us to discuss which moments from Sunday night's Grammy Awards are driving discussion, including the reading of excerpts from the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
