Iran: Watershed Nuclear Deal; San Francisco: Dueling AirBNB Regulations Before Supervisors

A breakthrough agreement over Iran’s nuclear program is already drawing howls of outrage from Israel and congressional Republicans – now they have 60 days to convince two thirds of Congress to shoot it down. We go over what’s in the deal, and what’s next.
Plus: San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors takes up new regulations on short-term rental services like AirBNB, which critics accuse of turning housing into hotels. We’ll talk the politics of America’s least affordable city with Tim Redmond.
