FROM THIS EPISODE

California has more than 23 million motorists, but one and a half million of them are here illegally.  On the first day of next year, a new state law will let them apply for drivers' licenses — with the goal of safer streets and more drivers covered by auto insurance.  Also, a video made by Invisible Children went viral two years ago, raising millions for the capture a brutal Ugandan warlord. But Joseph Kony is still at large, and Invisible Children is closing its doors.

Undocumented Drivers Can Line Up at the DMV 10 MIN, 12 SEC

A large proportion of California drivers aren't allowed to be licensed, no matter how careful they are or how long they've been behind the wheel.  But, in just a couple of weeks, that's going to change and it could affect your next visit to the DMV. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez speaks with with DMV spokesperson Armando Botello and Evangelina Ramirez, an undocumented immigrant who's been driving in California without a license for 20 years.

Remember "Kony 2012?" It was a video that went viral, especially among Millennials -- raising millions of dollars for Invisible Children, a nonprofit few people had heard of before. Its target, Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, was kidnapping kids to be soldiers for his Lord's Resistance Army. He's still at large, and Invisible Children is on the verge of shutting down.

You can see the video "Kony 2012" on our WWLA blog.
