June 11, 2018: Hour 142:54


President Trump escalated his rhetoric against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the weekend after leaving the G-7 summit in Canada. CBC senior reporter Evan Dyer discusses how the conflict between longtime allies is playing north of the U.S. border. Also, the Broadway hit "The Band's Visit" — which revolves around an Egyptian police band's arrival in a tiny Israeli desert village, instead of the thriving cultural center that bears a similar name — took 10 Tony Awards on Sunday night. We revisit our conversation with stars Tony Shalhoub and Katrina Lenk and director David Cromer, who each won an award. And some economists are worried that, 12 years after the last recession, another could be on the horizon because of the way corporations are using cheap debt. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's June 11, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
