Host Robin Young speaks with the pair about the book and their mothers. And, high level trade talks between the U.S. and China are set to resume in Washington. And after weeks of optimism, they have suddenly soured. But who's to blame? That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's May 9, 2019 full broadcast.
