Trade talks between Washington and Beijing resumed Friday after the U.S. increased tariffs from 10% to 25% on $200 billion in goods from China at midnight. Also, for the 30th anniversary of "The Simpsons" on Fox this year, NPR TV critic Eric Deggans speaks to key figures — including creator Matt Groening — about how a series of animated short bits that aired between sketches on "The Tracey Ullman Show" became the longest-running scripted series on U.S prime-time TV. And, House Democrats pulled a bill from the House floor on Wednesday after President Trump tweeted urging Republicans to vote against it. The measure would have protected the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe's reservation land in southeastern Massachusetts. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's May 10, 2019 full broadcast.
