July 30, 2019: Democratic Debate Preview; Loon Protection In New Hampshire

Download Audio

Democratic presidential hopefuls are gearing up for the second round of debates. Host Peter O'Dowd talks with Michigan Radio's Zoe Clark on what they will have to do in Detroit on Tuesday and Wednesday to stand out to voters. Also, lead poisoning deaths of several loons in New Hampshire this summer have prompted the state to offer a buy-back program, encouraging anglers to trade in illegal lead tackle — sinkers and jigs weighing less than an ounce — which kill loons who ingest them on fresh water lakes. Host Robin Young talks to Harry Vogel, senior biologist and executive director at the Loon Preservation Committee in New Hampshire. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's July 30, 2019 full broadcast.
