We catch up with the cast of the new Broadway play "Lifespan of a Fact," which follows what happens when an essayist pens what he thinks is one of his greatest stories, only to be met by the scrutiny of a zealous young fact checker, played by Daniel Radcliffe. Also, the political party that controls the state legislature in 2020 will be able to redraw district maps, affecting the balance of power in the United States for the following decade. Are these local races more important than federal ones? And women surfers competing at the sport's highest level can now win as much prize money as their male counterparts, after a hard-won change in the rules of the World Surf League that took effect this month, Here & Now's Chris Bentley reports. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's Oct. 31, 2018 full broadcast.
