In the studio, Terry Christensen talks with San Jose Mayor, Sam Liccardo, about the city’s current budget situation, his response to the recent devastating flood, immigration, and more. Later in the show, we hear from San Jose residents about their priorities for the City.

In Community News, Cayce Hill briefs us on the work of Veggielution. And finally, in “Where are They Now?”, Terry talks about the early days of Silicon Valley with Ted Smith, former CEO of the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition who, in the 1970s, lead the fight for local, state and national regulation of the toxic by-products used in tech manufacturing.
