We round up Tuesday's primary and election results with NPR's Jessica Taylor and Brian Ellison of KCUR. Also, pop singer-songwriter Jason Mraz is out with his sixth studio album this week, "Know." "When I feel good, I sing," he tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson, "and then singing makes me feel good, and it just escalates and becomes a constant feel-good experience." And developers often cite regulations as one big reason for the lack of home building. In the Bay Area, including San Francisco, where the housing crisis is arguably the worst in the nation, a new group is fighting regulations: the "yes in my backyard," or YIMBY, movement. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Aug. 8, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
