    LET ME COUNT THE MALAISE

    The homeless count results are in, and they're brutal. Scott, Alissa and Hayes go through the numbers and look at how different LA public officials responded to them, then get into the fallout from Measure EE's failure and Loraine Lundquist's victory in Tuesday's election. Plus: a bizarre Sheriff's Department And 1.

    THE ATKINS (HOUSING) DIET

    A big housing episode! Scott, Alissa and Hayes perform an autopsy on all the victims of the CA legislature's May Massacre, try to figure out what is going on with AHF and the high-rise on Sunset and Gordon, look at the first supportive housing building built with HHH money after more than 900 days, and anticipate the numbers of the homeless count coming this week.

    MAN OF GREEN FABLES

    The Mayor has unveiled his Green New Deal -- why do academics and activists say it won't reduce emissions? Why did Metro announce service cuts the next day? Why did Inglewood's Mayor try to turn left into oncoming traffic? Why did someone with measles go to The Grove? Why did the aspiring terrorist in Long Beach want to bomb both a protest and a counterprotest? Why didn't Obama show up for his road naming? Why did a police shooting victim's mom accuse Torrance cops of character assassination? Scott, Alissa and Hayes answer some of these questions and more!

    SPEED 2: CARUSO CONTROL

    Measles are back! Which LA schools have the lowest numbers of vaccinated kids? Somebody painted over an historic mural! Who was it and why? Rick Caruso gets a big New York Times profile where he basically says he wants to run for Mayor! Will he? A councilmember voted on projects from developers that paid his wife! Is that... as bad as it sounds? Scott, Alissa and Hayes answer these questions and more.
