FROM THIS EPISODE

Manufacturing and coal industries in the US have been hit hard over the past few years. Donald Trump has promised to revive them, but some say that’s unlikely.

Rabbi Susan Goldberg of Wilshire Boulevard Temple shares the Jewish reaction to the Trump presidency, and how she was targeted by anti-semitic Trump supporters.

Actress Isabelle Huppert talks about her new film ‘Elle.’ It opens with a woman being brutally raped in her home. What follows is a disturbing and sometimes comedic cat-and-mouse game.

With Measure M’s passage, LA county says it will raise $120 billion over the next 40 years to help expand transit options. How soon might you see that money put to work around your neighborhood?
