Meet P-45 and LA's other star mountain lions The Santa Monica Mountains are home to more than a dozen mountain lions. We discuss how they’ve adjusted to us, how we’ve adjusted to them, and the story of the male lion killing alpacas in Malibu.
The Salton Sea's Impending Disaster Saudi Arabia, of course, isn't the only place where engineering brought water to the desert. Here in California, we accidentally created the state's largest lake back in 1905 after the Colorado River broke through a dam. The Salton Sea covers 380 square miles of otherwise parched land in the Imperial and Coachella Valleys. At first, it was a happy accident. In the 50's and 60's celebrities and vacationers flocked there. But now, with the drought, the Salton Sea is drying up, which could create a huge environmental disaster. What's being done to stop it ?
What the shooting at North Park Elementary means for San Bernardino In San Bernardino yesterday, two people were killed after a man opened fire in a classroom for special-needs kids. What does this say about a city that saw a 41 percent increase in murders between 2015 and 2016? Also, how do kids who witness school shootings cope emotionally?

Passover food, kosher wine and fancy food with a view In honor of Passover, we follow author Joan Nathan on a culinary exploration of the Jewish diaspora and consider kosher wine options with Lou Amdur. An unlikely aficionado takes us on a chocolate chip cookie crawl, and we stop by the Santa Monica Farmers Market for celtuce and mustard greens with Zak Walters. Then journalist Lee van der Voo takes us on a deep dive into the dark waters of the commercial fishing industry.
