North Korea and China, 'The Interview' On Demand and L.A.’s Trash Problem

We start with a look at the relationship between North Korea and China. Chinese officials are standing up for North Korea in the wake of the Sony hack, but are the close ties between the two countries fraying? Then, a look at North Korean tourism and how much access Western travelers have when visiting that country. In our weekly television roundup we turn to “The Interview” and whether it will ever see the light of day. KCRW DJ Anne Litt shares her picks for the best songs of 2014. And finally, why are L.A.’s streets so cluttered with trash?
