Episode 22: Richard Kyte and Scott Rada discuss what's behind the huge spike in the murder rate last year. In the second segment, they debate what’s getting in the way of building more affordable housing. And in the third segment, they talk about what if anything can still be done to change the minds of those who refuse to get vaccinated.
