Recapping the Republican Debate, and the Bookworm's 2015 Favorites

We start today with a two-person panel recapping and analyzing last night’s final debate between the Republican presidential candidates in Las Vegas. What were the big takeaways?

Then we follow up on what’s next for the LAUSD after its massive school closure yesterday: Will the district have a new plan for future emergency situations?

Next, KCRW’s own bookworm, Michael Silverblatt, shares his top three fiction picks from 2015.

And finally, a look at the intense campaigning going on as we enter this year’s film and television awards season.
