FROM THIS EPISODE

Before Clippers owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA over racist remarks, he was supposed to receive a lifetime achievement award from the Los Angeles NAACP next month. Now people are questioning why the NAACP didn’t cut ties with Sterling earlier. With the upcoming release of the film Chef, KCRW’s “Good Food” host Evan Kleiman says most movies get it wrong when it comes to what it’s like to work in the kitchen. Aside from the Donald Sterling scandal, it’s been a huge week for LA sports; we get a roundup from the Sklar Brothers. And what ever happened with the “Heartbleed” bug that was threatened to doom the internet?
