Live, in studio we’re featuring comedians Susan Alexander, Kat Evasco, Lilibeth Helson and Priya Prasad from the Five Funny Females Festival this weekend at the legendary Purple Onion in San Francisco.

We also visit the August 4th Eviction Commemoration of the I-Hotel, and the unveiling of the I-Hotel Mural by Johanna Poethig, honoring the decades-long struggle for low income housing and the manongs who helped lead the way in 1977.

And we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Angel Island Immigration Station, one of the most important immigration sites in US history, featuring a reading from Judy Yung and Erika Lee’s new book, Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America.
