May 17, 2018: Hour 2Play
USA Today immigration reporter Alan Gomez joins us to discuss President Trump calling some unauthorized immigrants "animals" during a meeting Wednesday, and more immigration news coming out of the White House. Also, Mike Shirkey grew up in the Arkansas Delta, listening to "pickin' music" — bluegrass, country, folk and the like. He's host of "The Pickin' Post" on KUAF, and joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to share some new finds in the latest edition of our DJ Sessions. And a recent study found a more rigorous high school math and science curriculum correlated with decreased risky student health behavior, like binge drinking and drug use. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's May 17, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
