The National Sexual Assault Hotline reported the busiest day in its history last Friday following Christine Blasey Ford's testimony about her alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh. Here & Now's Robin Young talks with Anne Pezzillo, director of counseling services at the YWCA of Metropolitan Chicago, which runs hotlines for all three of the city's rape crisis centers. Also, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded Wednesday to three researchers whose work has harnessed the power of evolution, including two American scientists. And political strategists discuss the latest on Kavanaugh's embattled Supreme Court nomination, a point of contention ahead of the midterm elections. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's Oct. 3, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
