Coastal Commission Shakeup, Kasich and Life in a Prison

Hosted by  • 

Today we start with an update from Morro Bay, where the fate of California Coastal Commission Executive Director Charles Lester is being decided. The future of the commission’s leadership has big implications for California’s coast.

Then, John Kasich took second place among Republicans in the New Hampshire primary yesterday. What’s his track record?

Also in politics, New Hampshire primary winner Donald Trump touts a message of American exceptionalism. How did this idea become entangled in the country’s politics?

Next, the new science of gene editing.

And finally, a look inside one of California’s most notoriously violent prisons.
