We kick off this week's episode with a look at the special election to fill Greg Casar's vacated seat on City Council.
Staff writer Austin Sanders runs down the seven candidates vying to represent District 4 for the remainder of Casar's term (the CM stepped down last month to run for Congress). Read more about the race in this week's issue, and D4 voters will want to check our the Chronicle Editorial Board's dual endorsement in the race.
In the second half of the program, Culture Editor Richard Whittaker takes over hosting duties to interview tech writer Tom Cheredar, who profiled in this week's issue Zynga, the Austin-based developer behind ubiquitous games like Words With Friends, Zynga Poker, Harry Potter Puzzles & Spells, and Farmville 3.
