Perfume Genius is out with a new album titled "Set My Heart On Fire Immediately." Lead singer Mike Hadreas explains the music and what it's like to release an album in the midst of a pandemic. Also, as we head into the hot summer months, many Americans will struggle to pay for utilities, like air conditioning, which in parts of the country is not a luxury but a necessity. We speak with Mark Wolfe of the National Energy Assistance Directors' Association, which represents state directors who are participating in the federal energy assistance program. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's June 1, 2020, full broadcast.
