Rescue operations are still underway in Guatemala, after the eruption of the Fuego volcano over the weekend, and thousands have been forced to evacuate. We discuss the eruption with a volcanologist at Michigan Technological University. Also, there is a crowded batch of primary races across the country Tuesday. There's a lot at stake in particular in California, where voters will weigh in on the race for governor, as well as some key House and Senate seats. And we talk with financial journalist Paddy Hirsch about his debut novel, "The Devil's Half Mile," which is set on Wall Street — in 1799. The book's hero is investigating the death of his father, who may have been involved in some shady deals. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's June 5, 2018 full broadcast.
