State of Affairs
We talk about the latest in state and national politics for State of Affairs with KPCC political reporter Libby Denkmann and Claremont Mckenna professor Jack Pitney.
LASD Civilian Oversight
Yesterday, the panel called on Sheriff Alex Villanueva to resign - saying he had failed to address serious problems at the agency like deputy gangs, and had blocked the commission's efforts to oversee the department. The panel's vote is advisory only - but comes amid eroding public support for the sheriff. So the question is - now what? We sort it all out.

Race in LA: Yoán Moreno
Time now for the latest installment in our new series Race in LA. In it, we ask Angelenos how race and identity shape their day to day lives. The essays written by both community contributors and LAist staffers are published each week and the hope is that these stories fuel meaningful, authentic conversations about our lived experiences as a certain race or ethnicity. This week contributor Yoán Moreno shares his essay about the differences between Miami and Los Angeles when it comes to race relations.
Glendale Sundown Town
The city of Glendale has become the first city in California to pass a resolution apologizing for its history as a Sundown Town. We discuss Glendale’s history and what comes next.
- Gary Keyes, former history teacher at Crescenta Valley High School and retired social science professor at Glendale Community College
