Download Audio

We discuss the week in politics, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's trial and major elections in Ohio and Kansas, with NBC senior politics editor Beth Fouhy and NPR lead politics editor Domenico Montanaro. Also, Marlon Portillo came to the U.S. as an unaccompanied minor from El Salvador 12 years ago. Since then, he's qualified for DACA status, graduated from high school and is working toward a bachelor's degree in history. And Sacha Baron Cohen's "Who Is America?" traps its subjects — often right-wing politicians and activists — and gets them to say and do outrageous things. NPR TV critic Eric Deggans shares his take on the controversial Showtime series. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Aug. 10, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
