In hour one of Here & Now's March 16, 2018 full broadcast, we break down the week's news in politics, including Russia sanctions and Trump administration staff shake-ups, with Brian Bennett of The Los Angeles Times and Toluse Olorunnipa of Bloomberg News. Also, we revisit our conversation with the author of "A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America." And Memphis has been pumping sewage water into the Mississippi River temporarily over the last few days because of a pump failure at a wastewater treatment plant. A reporter there tells us what caused the problem, and when it might be resolved. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
