Bullet Trains, The Gay Gene and Hollywood NIMBYs

Hosted by

Today on Press Play, yet another lawsuit has been filed against California’s bedeviled bullet train. We take a look at where the project stands now. And Hollywood NIMBYs have successfully derailed Hollywood’s 2012 higher density zoning plan. What now? In our weekly film segment, The Fault in Our StarsEdge of TomorrowObvious Child, and Rigor Mortis. Also, the opening riff to Led Zeppelin’s classic “Stairway to Heaven” sounds suspiciously like a song by Spirit, a California band. Now there’s a lawsuit. And, nature vs nurture and the search for the “gay gene.”
