October 29, 2018: Hour 1

Since the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed 11 people, Jewish leaders have been speaking out about the divisiveness they say is contributing to hate crimes around the country. Also, we revisit a conversation with author Sigrid Nuñez, whose novel "The Friend" was selected as a finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction. And in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and the pipe bomb packages case, host Peter O'Dowd speaks with a former FBI profiler about social media's role in investigations. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Oct. 29, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
