In hour two of Here & Now's Feb. 16, 2018 full broadcast, we discuss how social media has been reacting to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, with Femi Oke of Al Jazeera English. Also, it's rare to see people with disabilities on television, and rarer still to see actors with disabilities in those roles. But a new show "This Close" is written by and stars deaf people. And at the Winter Olympics, American skier Mikaela Shiffrin failed to medal in the slalom, the event she has dominated for the last five years, including a gold medal win four years ago in Russia. NPR's Elise Hu shares the latest from Pyeongchang. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
