Relevant Discourse on San Diego Planning

These first couple of episodes have been great in highlighting history and current issues facing San Diego. Howard and Lawrence bring refreshing points of view to the table and take the time to address issues fairly. I appreciate the fact they don't necessarily agree on all points. I hope they continue with more episodes for a long time to come.
