MJ Ryan of Rhode Island found a unique solution to what's become a common crisis for family members of nursing care patients: the inability to visit their loved ones during the pandemic. She took a part-time job in a care facility's laundry room so she could visit her mother. Also, on Wednesday, a crowd of protesters gathered outside of a vote counting center in Detroit, chanting "stop the count." Sommer Woods helped stave off the crowd and explains what that moment was like. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's Nov. 5, 2020, full broadcast.
