Amanda Gorman's inaugural poem has been translated into multiple languages. One white non-binary translator quit after criticism that they did not share Gorman's race or life experiences. A second white translator was let go for the same reasons. A linguist joins us to discuss the controversy. Also, the attack in a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, marks the third Denver-area shooting in the last two decades in which 10 or more people died. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's March 26, 2021, full broadcast.

This program aired on March 26, 2021.
