November 27, 2018: Hour 2Play
Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown is speaking out against General Motors' move to cut 15,000 jobs and idle five factories, including an assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio. Also, singer-songwriter-satirist Randy Rainbow has built a fervent fan base by churning out parody videos on politics and current events. Here & Now's Robin Young visits Rainbow in his apartment in Queens, New York, which is also his production studio. And Ruth DeFries, an environmental geographer at Columbia University, is one of many scholars who says stopping deforestation is "just as urgent" as reducing emissions. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's Nov. 27, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
