We get the latest updates from Food and Water Watch organizer, Alexandra Nagy, and speak to resident of Porter Valley, Susan Gorman-Chang. In the second half, we find out what to expect in Obama’s last State of the Union address from John Nichols. Last, this year’s Super Bowl is taking place at our own Levi Stadium but not everyone’s excited about it. Find out why from Tim Redmond.
