Here and Now

February 28, 2018: Hour 1

In hour one of Here & Now's Feb. 28, 2018 full broadcast, we hear from Ryan Petty, who lost his 14-year-old daughter, Alaina, in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Students there are returning to classes Wednesday for the first time since the shooting two weeks ago. Also, after 16 years of war, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani is offering to hold peace talks with the Taliban. The BBC's Zia Shahreyar joins us with the latest from Kabul. And in our latest DJ Session, we take a listen to Laotian pop music with Vannasone Keodara, who moved to the U.S. when she was a child and now DJs on the radio show "Lao Diaspora."
