The race for East Oakland’s District 7 is on. We talk about the issues on the table — and there are a lot of them. Then, what are the health effects of all the smoke we’ve been breathing? Plus, we meet a fire chief who says we actually need more fires — of the right kind.
Today's local music is hardcore Bay Area band Gulch. Their new album is "Impenetrable Cerebral Fortress."
