In hour two of Here & Now's March 29, 2018 full broadcast, Washington Post reporter Lisa Rein joins us to discuss fired Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin's tenure at the agency, and what to expect from Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, who's been nominated by President Trump to replace Shulkin. Also, state lawmakers like Rep. Kim Osborn are contending with a worsening budget crisis and other burdens, after years of tax cuts didn't have the results they'd hoped for. And this fall marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Van Morrison's album "Astral Weeks" — released to little fanfare but regarded as one of the most important records of the rock era. We learn more about the album's little-known Boston ties. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
