Pools and Segregation, Vincent Bugliosi Dies, and the Primates of Park Avenue

Hosted by  • 

McKinney, Texas is in the news after a video surfaced of a police officer using force at a teenage pool party, we look at the surprisingly intertwined history of public pools and segregation. Then, Vincent Bugliosi, who successfully prosecuted Charles Manson in L.A. in the early ‘70s, has died at 80. We hear from someone who worked with him on the case. Next, the author of a new memoir about the strange ways of wives on Manhattan’s Upper East Side talks to Madeleine about the now-infamous “wife bonus” and other observations. And we preview the L.A. Film Festival, happening this week.
