    THE FIRE TEXT TIME

    What Stephen Ross-owned properties do we have to boycott in LA? What amenities can you expect in your new $7,000-a-month downtown one-bedroom? Whose house did Mayor Garcetti ask the fire department to check on during the Woolsey fire? Why are so many city councilmembers staying out of the CD12 race? Why did USC not respond to complaints about yet another rapist doctor? And what is the current status of the Kanye Domes and Emoji House?

    UNBREAK MY CART

    City Hall re-re-criminalizes sleeping in cars, and Mayor Garcetti's office has a couple's possessions thrown away after they posed with him for a photo op. Uber and Lyft sweat the possible passage of AB 5, and high-speed rail might come to LA, but a lot slower and shorter. Guest ALBERT CORADO joins Scott and Hayes to talk about seeking justice for his sister Mely Corado after she was killed by LAPD at Trader Joe's one year ago.

    WE DIDN'T START THE FEUER

    The FBI raids the DWP and City Hall again, turns out the LAPD and the city were investigating Nipsey Hussle all along (and still are), SoCalGas set up a "grassroots" front group to get people excited about balanced energy solutions, another group fights to preserve the historic Amoeba building, and the NYT is going to LA summer camp.

    VILLANUEVA HAVE I EVER

    A song parody submittied by a listener, the city opening a new natural gas plant in Utah despite its "Green New Deal," a coalition sues the city for throwing out the property of people who are homeless, a bunch of people want to build a gondola to the Hollywood Sign, LAPD sent an officer to spy on some leftist protestors, and somehow more bizarre behavior from Sheriff Villanueva comes to light.

    SHIVER ME TEMBLORS

    Recording just after the Friday earthquake, the hosts open up about how they reckoned with death two days in a row and discuss why the #ShakeAlertLA app didn't alert anyone. Then they get into the automation fight at the Port of LA, Trump's comments on LA homelessness and Garcetti's polite response, and a new wrinkle in the fight over whether people who are homeless can keep their possessions.

    YOU SUNK MY RIDERSHIP

    New state budget -- how much money is LA getting? Why do councilmembers want more? Grocery store strike -- is it going to happen? What would it mean if it does? New encampment sweeps policy -- why is LAPD still a part of it? Could that change? And Metro bus ridership -- why is it cratering? How do we fire everyone who let this happen?

    SCAG ME TO HELL

    Alissa tells a harrowing LA Story, Northridgers have a meltdown about a rapid bus line, local officials don't do much about Trump's announced ICE raids, the LA Times laments the loss of Weird LA, and DR. PAAVO MONKKONEN (@elpaavo), Associate Professor of Urban Planning at UCLA's Luskin School, joins the show to tell stories from the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)'s efforts to figure out how much housing cities need to build.

    Alissa, Scott and Hayes get into scooter numbers that came out this week, take the listener to City Hall to hear the council explain why they're continuing to punish people for being poor, congratulate Inglewood on its new rent control, break down a new proposed vacancy tax, and break some actual good news live on the show.
