Download Audio

Democrats running for president have floated some of the most progressive criminal justice reform ideas in years. They're running against President Trump, who signed a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill into law last year. Criminologist Kimya Dennis of the Notre Dame of Maryland University joins Here & Now's Susan Davis to discuss how criminal justice reform is playing out on the campaign trail. Also, blue-green algae in lakes and ponds has caused several dog deaths this summer. We speak with Melissa Martin, whose three dogs died earlier this month, and Val Beasley, a professor at Penn State. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's August 27, 2019 full broadcast.
