In hour two of Here & Now's April 23, 2018 full broadcast, NPR's Ron Elving joins us to discuss President Trump's nominee to replace Rex Tillerson as secretary of state facing some opposition within the Senate, amid a state visit by French President Emmanuel Macron. Also, Madeline Miller's powerful new novel recasts the goddess Circe, best known for turning Odysseus' men into pigs in Homer's epic poem "The Odyssey," as a powerful feminist goddess. And there's ongoing distrust, anger and fear between communities of color and police, following a series of police shootings of unarmed black men. The president of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement tells us how its members are responding.
