July 5, 2018: Hour 1

In California, six major wildfires have burned nearly 100,000 acres so far, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. We check in with KQED reporter Lesley McClurg for the latest. Also, just because a president nominates a Supreme Court justice doesn't always mean they'll make it to the bench. Historians Ed Ayers and Joanne Freeman, co-hosts of the podcast "BackStory," join us to take a look back at the history of failed Supreme Court nominations. And Ayana Contreras, DJ of "Reclaimed Soul" on Vocalo radio in Chicago, shares some vintage vinyl soul music that might not have made it to Spotify or iTunes. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's July 5, 2018 full broadcast.
