Coastal Commission Shakeup, Sex In The Sea, Female Scripting

Hosted by

The California Coastal Commission Executive Director Charles Lester is out, in a move that environmentalists say favors developers at the expense of preserving the state’s cherished coastline. We’ll hear from a critic of the move, and the commission chairman.

Also, the commission is trying to crack down on a group of Palos Verdes surfers called the Bay Boys. They’ve ruled over a strip of beach called Lunada Bay, but their reign may be ending.

Next, we stay in the water and talk to the author of a new book about the sex lives of sea creatures.

Finally, a new Twitter feed highlights the sexist way female characters are described in screenplays. We talk to a TV writer who’s a fan of what the Twitter feed is sharing with the public.
