A new report says a government program that brings au pairs to the United States is being abused, as some au pairs are forced to work long hours for low pay, given substandard living conditions and even abused. The issue has sparked lawsuits across the country. Also, in Austin, Texas — once the home of Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin and Gary Clark Jr. — the city today is packed with vibrant venues and diverse music, especially during the annual South By Southwest music festival. In this week's Here & Now DJ Session, host Jeremy Hobson tours some of Austin's latest favorites with Taylor Wallace, DJ at KUTX. And NPR's David Folkenflik looks at three stories that made major headlines Tuesday, and how CNN and Fox News covered each of them. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's Aug. 22, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
