State of the Union, LA Sustainability & the Toast Renaissance

Today on Press Play, we learn more about the soldier who President Obama introduced to the nation last night during the State of the Union Address. We also get a Silicon Valley insider’s take on the president’s speech. Plus, how toast became the latest culinary trend. We also meet the filmmakers behind an Oscar-nominated documentary about the Egyptian revolution, and we debate whether L.A. is actually a model city for sustainability.
