The Voice of San Diego Podcast

VOSD’s Friday roundup of the past week’s news in brief, featuring interviews with special guests and more.

Jun 18, 2013

In the latest edition of VOSD Radio, Scott Lewis and Andrew Keatts dissect a big planning move by the mayor (the hiring of  Bill Fulton, an expert with a national reputation), including who might be unhappy with the news. You can also read a Q-and-A with Fulton here.

They also present the Number of the Week: 847. That's at least how many acres the city bestowed, via public votes, to researchers like General Atomics and Jonas Salk. Read more about it in our quest to better understand possible hurdles to innovation in San Diego.

In the Fact Check corner, Lewis and Keatts give San Diego Unified school board President John Lee Evans a "Barely True" verdict for his claim that all five trustees have full-time jobs outside the school board.

Plus, find out why VOSD Radio named City Councilman Mark Kersey as Hero of the Week and the San Diego Association of Governments as Goat of the Week.
