Supreme Court after Scalia, Marijuana and Dying, and Bukowski’s Childhood Home

Hosted by  • 

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died this weekend after serving almost 30 years on the highest court in the land. What will his legacy be? And what happens to the current cases before the court? Then, how marijuana could help the terminally ill die with dignity. Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Margo Jefferson explores the world of African American privilege in her new memoir, Negroland. It’s the story of growing up black and affluent in Chicago in the '50s and '60s. Finally, Press Play producer Anna Scott visits writer Charles Bukowski's childhood home in mid-city, which just sold for the first time in 20 years. This is the latest installment in our L.A. Dwellings series, which series tells stories about Los Angeles through its houses and apartment buildings.
