Winter is approaching, and while 70% of the state’s eligible population has gotten at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, health experts warn the remaining unvaccinated and under vaccinated could lead to another surge. Plus, inflation is at its highest point in 30 years, did bad policies create that situation and can it be turned around anytime soon? Also, California Report Host Saul Gonzalez went to a jobs fair to see what hiring looks like now and what workers are thinking as they look for jobs. Meanwhile, two high-profile cases are highlighting the intersection of vigilantism and race. And, why does it seem like so many streets are built for cars and not pedestrians? A traffic engineer explains everything he sees wrong with his profession. Finally, for the past 24 years, one woman has put San Diego on the map for cutting-edge music with her Fresh Sound concert series. This Friday is the last of the series.
