VICE News Tonight Season 2 Episode 36

The nuclear production complex called the Hanford Site was a crucial part of the Manhattan Project, the U.S. government’s secret program that produced the atomic bomb. Plutonium developed at Hanford was used in the bomb dropped on Nagasaki in 1945. Now, the U.S. isn’t just preserving this piece of history—it’s showing it off. Randall Woodfin won an unexpected upset over incumbent Birmingham Mayor William Bell by invigorating a grassroots network of young voters with a progressive pitch that echoed Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign. VICE News follows him during his first day on the job as he meets with government officials, his new constituents and plots out how to turn the city around.

After years of trying and failing, Republicans may finally succeed at allowing drilling for oil in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife refuge — thanks to the Tax Reform bill. VICE News talks to Senator Cantwell about why this push to include the ANWR might be more than just a bargaining chip.

Plus, Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is expected to plead guilty to lying to the FB and Director Guillermo del Toro talks about his latest film, “Shape of Water.”
