In its earliest days, the presidency of Donald J. Trump has generated a surfeit of news followed by confusion, excitement and protest. How have the first 100 days of the Trump administration followed his own bold rhetoric during the campaign? At this symbolic moment, NPR News takes stock in a series of reports that have been airing on Morning Edition and All Things Considered all week.

Saturday, April 29, in a special edition of Weekend All Things Considered, host Michel Martin will devote the hour to a deep dive into Trump's first 100 days. Michel will talk with Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez, House Freedom Caucus members, and others. Tune in Saturday at 5 p.m.

A recent author interview on Morning Edition struck a chord with KGOU listeners: David Grann has written a new book about the early-20th-century murders of members of the Osage tribe in northeast Oklahoma, a coordinated conspiracy by government officials and individuals to take Osage oil money. Grann will be at Full Circle Bookstore in Oklahoma City next Tuesday, May 2, signing copies of his book, Killers of the Flower Moon.

The Splendid Table: Return to the Family Farm
Nikiko Masumoto grew up working the peach harvest on the Masumoto Family Farm in California. Like many farmers' children, Nikiko thought once she left for college, she'd leave the business for good, but her plans changed. Splendid Table host Francis Lam spoke with her about how returning to her roots became the most radical political statement she could make. Watch her story and try the Masumoto family recipe for Peach Melba, a cool dessert perfect for the local peach harvest and the hot summer ahead.
