What do state and local election results mean for Los Angeles? We have a discussion about how local progressive grassroots energy shook things up this week — with special guests Manuel Pastor, Eunisses Hernandez, and guest co-host Christen Hebrard.
Plus: Mike’s thoughts on how a proposed City ordinance represents a failed approach to homelessness, how police unions lost big in the elections, and how he looks forward to an AOC-Ed Markey style partnership with Councilwoman-elect Nithya Raman.
