FROM THIS EPISODE

Summer’s here, and that means the dreaded journey to Los Angeles International Airport. Choose between crowded freeways, pricey parking … or a wallet-busting taxi ride. But today, Metro officials agreed to consider another option: A so-called “people mover” that runs from a new light-rail station to LAX.

Also, we get a taste of the melting pot that is LA’s World Cup watching parties. And there’s some unusual in-fighting among California judges about whether they should cut all ties with the Boy Scouts.

LA's World Cup Fever 7 MIN, 11 SEC

If you’ve been to a bar in LA – or any gathering place with a big screen TV that’s showing the World Cup – you might have noticed a lot of national pride from a veritable UN of soccer fans. KCRW’s Saul Gonzalez has been canvassing the city and talking to a diverse mix of World Cup watchers about their unwavering loyalty.

Judge May Cut All Ties to Boy Scouts 5 MIN, 55 SEC

The ban on gay Boy Scout leaders has caused uproar among an otherwise reserved group of civic-minded Californians: judges. Now, a state ethics panel is weighing a proposal that would forbid California judges from associating with the Boy Scouts in any official capacity. As reporter Emily Green tells us, there are strong feelings on both sides.
