    City Could Dash Outdoor Dining

    City Could Dash Outdoor Dining

    A lot of parking spots were taken away last year when the city of San Diego let restaurants move their business outside temporarily to keep customers around safely.

    Now that we're moving to an increasingly maskless and virus-less region, what's the deal with those patio structures? This week, we discuss the mixed messaging that's coming from the city on the structures' future.

    Plus: The latest on 101 Ash St., Cindy Marten's new job is official and other local news.

    Fraud, Facial Recognition and Bears, Oh My!

    Fraud, Facial Recognition and Bears, Oh My!

    The recall election truly earned the criticism this week that the effort is a circus.

    One San Diegan in the race, John Cox, is pushing some wild tactics that feature an actual bear. The other San Diegan running is former Mayor Kevin Faulconer, a key player in a new investigation by Voice of San Diego.

    This week, we talk the race, the investigation and a story of potential fraud at a powerful charity.

    Plus: San Diego 101 is back! We'll break down the latest series of explainers and how you can use it to learn about the region — and change it.

    Rehashing the Recall

    The recall is on.

    Enough signatures have been gathered to trigger an election to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom, likely sometime in November, just before the next gubernatorial election in 2022. This week, we review the mechanics of a statewide recall election, like what you'll see on the ballot and how you'll be able to vote.

    Plus: Andy Keatts tells the story of the rise of Reform California, a conservative political advocacy group.

Excellent

Really well produced, interesting and informative podcasts. The rapport between hosts Andy and Scott is what all podcasts should strive for

Break The Limit ,

Engaging journalism in a city without a voice

I never cared about public affairs until I started listening to this podcast. Their stories are entertaining, engaging, and informative. Their investigative reporting has revealed some very compelling stories in San Diego and has truly given me insight into the inner workings of my hometown. Andy and Ry always crack me up! Their relaxed and fun discussions really bring issues to life and make it feel like you're chatting it up with some good friends. I absolutely love this podcast and I believe it would really inform and educate many San Diegans by listening to their podcast and reading their stories. Please donate if you can. They are a great non-profit and I can't imagine reading my daily local news from anywhere else!
