The Totescast is going green this week with an update on the city’s recycling initiatives, but first we sort through City Council consideration of a new convention center hotel downtown. Is it real talk, or rubbish?

Rounding things out, a discussion of the latest news affecting former cop Leonardo Quintana, this time his arrest by Leander police stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident last year that served as reason for his recent re-termination. As always, Jordan Smith and Wells Dunbar are struggling to keep up.
