Here and Now

August 16, 2018: Hour 2

The jury is now deliberating the verdict for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, accused of fraud, lying and tax evasion. NPR justice correspondent Ryan Lucas has the latest. Also, Spike Lee's explosive new movie "BlacKkKlansman" tells the story of Colorado Springs police officer Ron Stallworth, who decided to infiltrate and bring down the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in the early 1970s. Its opening weekend was the biggest yet for one of Lee's movies — and it had audiences asking how much of the story is real. Slate writer Jasmine Sanders separates fact from fiction. And climate change is still a relatively new phrase to many, but its debate and denial in the U.S. stretches back a long time. Here & Now's Robin Young talks about the history of climate change with Brian Balogh and Nathan Connolly, historians and co-hosts of the podcast "BackStory." That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's Aug. 16, 2018 full broadcast.
