Hurricane Dorian is expected to become a Category 4 storm this weekend as it nears Florida. WMFE's Brendan Byrne tells us how people in the state are preparing for the storm's approach.

NPR TV Critic Eric Deggans discusses with host Femi Oke how Chappelle's unapologetic commentary fits uneasily with the #MeToo era. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's August 30, 2019 full broadcast.
