In hour two of Here & Now's Feb. 1, 2018 full broadcast, we take a closer look at Olympics infrastructure in South Korea, including the brand-new Olympic stadium in Pyeongchang — which will only be used four times before it's decommissioned. Also, presidents throughout history have made their mark on the State of the Union address since George Washington delivered the first in 1790. We explore the evolution of the address with historians Ed Ayers and Brian Balogh. And we hear the latest from Kenya, where the country's government shut down three TV stations after they tried to broadcast an event held by an opposition politician Tuesday.
