Download Audio

In hour one of Here & Now's April 20, 2018 full broadcast, we look back at a week in politics dominated by former FBI Director James Comey with NPR's Domenico Montanaro and Telemundo's José Díaz-Balart. Also, the Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger is known for his pioneering work describing the form of autism that now bears his name. But previously unexamined documents now show Asperger was also involved with a notorious euthanasia program run by Nazis in Austria. And we preview Sunday's London Marathon, which could be the hottest on record with temperatures in the 70s. The race follows Monday's Boston Marathon, which was run in some of the worst weather conditions in the 122-year history of that race.
