We discuss the latest on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings Tuesday with NPR congressional correspondent Scott Detrow. Also, when it comes to charitable giving, smaller donations can be even more helpful than bigger donations. Here & Now's Robin Young talks with one couple that has made multimillion-dollar gifts in the past, but in recent years has chosen to focus on giving smaller amounts to local charities where they live. And we meet a group of "bridge tenders" that specializes in a peculiar and slow-moving job. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Sept. 4, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
