  • How 1 mom recovered from facial paralysis, and US faces Omicron variant
    Playwright Sarah Ruhl has spent 10 years recovering from Bell’s palsy, a mysterious and sudden facial paralysis, while juggling motherhood and a writing career. She shares her journey in a new memoir. The Omicron variant of COVID has spread to about a dozen countries after being discovered in South Africa this month, and scientists don’t know how contagious it is or whether today’s vaccines can protect against it. High-profile criminal cases start today for Ghislaine Maxwell, the long-time associate of alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, and Jussie Smollett, the “Empire” actor who allegedly staged an assault. The Marías' Grammy-nominated debut album "Cinema" uses English and Spanish lyrics, and mixes jazz, reggaeton and pop.

  • Guilty verdicts in Ahmaud Arbery murder trial: Analysis
    Travis McMichael, his father Gregory McMichael, and their neighbor William Bryan were deemed guilty today for murdering Ahmaud Arbery, a Black 25-year-old, when he was out jogging in February 2020.

  • Thanksgiving air travel: Long lines, stressed workers, lax COVID attitudes
    AAA expects more than 53 million people to travel for Thanksgiving this year, nearly matching pre-pandemic levels amid hopes of a semi-formal holiday season. But with COVID rising, how can you protect yourself if you’re flying?  Governor Gavin Newsom says “substantially more” law enforcement officers will be near busy retail stores this Thanksgiving week. That’s because high-end luxury stores have been recently robbed. Fewer real Christmas trees are available for sale after months of drought, extreme heat, and record wildfires. If you’re looking for a fake one, you’ll be dealing with the same supply chain issues plaguing everything else. Press Play also speaks to the screenwriter of “House of Gucci,” a new film about the backstabbing and murderous family behind the iconic fashion brand, and gets reviews of the newest Christmas films.

  • Kyle Rittenhouse and men who killed Ahmaud Arbery: How do trials compare?
    Closing arguments began today in the trial against the three white men charged with murdering Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man, in Brunswick, Georgia. It takes place days after the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, a young white man who shot three white men last year, killing two of them and injuring the third, during an anti-police brutality protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. KCRW breaks down both cases and their similarities. Also, a new documentary looks at how Janet Jackson’s fans helped turn around her career after the infamous wardrobe malfunction at the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show with Justin Timberlake. And Press Play revisits our favorite interviews with chefs and cookbook authors from the year, compiling recipes for this Thanksgiving.

  • How fentanyl and meth saturated the US and led to more LA homelessness
    For the first time ever, more than 100,000 Americans died from a drug overdose in just one year, according to preliminary numbers released by the CDC this week. Most deaths were from fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that can be 100 times more potent than morphine. For decades, fentanyl was only used in hospitals, but now you can find it anywhere. Meth is also available cheaply, is stronger now than ever before, and is a big reason why so many people are living on the streets in LA, according to journalist and author Sam Quinones. His new book is “The Least of Us: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth. Press Play also gets reviews of the latest films: “King Richard,” “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” “C’mon C’mon,” and “Bruised.”
