October 22, 2018: Hour 1

Only 16 percent of eligible voters under the age of 30 cast ballots in the 2014 midterms. While some public figures have taken to social media to mobilize young votes, some experts say the solution to low youth turnout is better civics education. Also, the new HBO documentary "Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped by Boko Haram" looks at what happened to 276 Nigerian girls who were kidnapped from a school in Chibok, Nigeria, in 2014 — 82 of whom were released in 2017. And we speak with the CEO of the car sharing company Getaround, who envisions a future where the majority of cars are shared. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Oct. 22, 2018 full broadcast.
