April 25, 2018: Hour 1Play
In hour one of Here & Now's April 25, 2018 full broadcast, the suspect in the Toronto van attack that killed 10 people, primarily women, posted a message on his Facebook page that appears linked to a misogynistic online group of men who identify as "incel," or involuntarily celibate. We learn more about the group from a psychotherapist. Also, for Grammy Award-winning country music artist Keith Urban, the studio is "like a blank canvas." Most of the songs on his new album were written there. And a national memorial for victims of lynching opens Thursday in Montgomery, Alabama, that features engraved names of victims on blocks of rusted steel that hang from the ceiling of a large pavilion. One of those names is Wes Johnson, who was lynched in Tumbleton, Alabama, in 1937. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
