This week’s episode is a Battle of the Bay. You may have seen the Bay Guardian’s cover story last week which asked, “Is Oakland cooler than SF?!” and said, “San Francisco is losing much of its diversity, cultural edge, and working class to the East Bay — can anything be done?”

To continue this dialogue, we talk with Michelle Reed who opened a small plant store called Roots in San Francisco’s Mission District.

We also bring into the studio, Saqib Keval with People’s Grocery, an organization whose mission is to  improve the health and economy of West Oakland through the local food system.

We talk with Kearny Street Workshop, a multi-disciplinary arts organization in San Francisco that is holding a fundraiser called Dumpling Wars at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center.

And we close out with a teaser for the documentary about the lead singer of San Francisco band, Journey. Mr. Arnel Pineda, from the Philippines!

Hosts No-No Girl and Salima.
