June 12, 2018: Hour 2Play
The historic face-to-face meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is over, and the world is interpreting the two countries' commitment "to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula." We speak with NPR Beijing correspondent Anthony Kuhn, who covered the meeting from Singapore. Also, looking for summer books that test your brain but are still accessible? Author and podcaster Steve Almond shares some of his picks, from Zadie Smith's "Feel Free" to Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451." And, in Iowa, there's a conversation going on about whether to raise the degree requirements for morticians for the first time in 60 years. We speak with the president of the Iowa Funeral Directors Association. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's June 12, 2018 full broadcast.
