In hour two of Here & Now's Feb. 27, 2018 full broadcast, we check in with the latest in Florida where lawmakers are continuing to evaluate options for gun control or safety measures. Also, author Jody Shields' novel "The Winter Station" is set in the Russian city of Kharbin, a frozen desolate outpost in Manchuria, amid an uneasy peace between the Chinese and Russians who live there — and then comes the plague. Shields shares more about her poignant historical novel. And, federal student loan debt is nearly $1.4 trillion, more than twice as much as it was a decade ago. We ask one professor of public policy, education and economics whether the situation has reached a crisis.
