Hosted by  • 

Today, Ukraine took back control of a government buildings seized by pro-Russian demonstrators over the weekend in the city of Kharkiv. As the conflict continues, it could be setting the stage for another Russian military invasion along the lines of Crimea. Plus, pot farmers in Mexico are leaving marijuana behind and are now growing opium poppies instead. They say pot legalization in some states is hurting their marijuana business. We also take a look at the state of the theater scene in Los Angeles. And, with the announcement of a new, posthumous Michael Jackson record on the way, we look back at some of the best and worst posthumous records of all time. We also take a look at ESPN’s new efforts to build an audience for cricket.
