May 27, 2019: Gray Whales Wash Up At Near-Record Levels; 'Aloha Rodeo' And Hawaiian CowboysPlay
At least 64 gray whales have turned up dead all along the west coast, the highest number since 2000. Host Peter O'Dowd speaks with a biologist about the phenomena. Also, hosts of the podcast Endless Thread bring us some history of the development of — and resistance to — vaccines. And, in 1908, three riders from Hawaii came to compete in the biggest rodeo in America — Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Their abilities stunned spectators unaware of Hawaii's cattle culture. We talk to authors David Wolman and Julian Smith about their new book, "Aloha Rodeo." That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's May 27, 2019 full broadcast.
