Here and Now

April 25, 2018: Hour 1

In hour one of Here & Now's April 25, 2018 full broadcast, the suspect in the Toronto van attack that killed 10 people, primarily women, posted a message on his Facebook page that appears linked to a misogynistic online group of men who identify as "incel," or involuntarily celibate. We learn more about the group from a psychotherapist. Also, for Grammy Award-winning country music artist Keith Urban, the studio is "like a blank canvas." Most of the songs on his new album were written there. And a national memorial for victims of lynching opens Thursday in Montgomery, Alabama, that features engraved names of victims on blocks of rusted steel that hang from the ceiling of a large pavilion. One of those names is Wes Johnson, who was lynched in Tumbleton, Alabama, in 1937.
