Seattle is America's fastest growing city over the past year, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Former Boston police chief Kathleen O'Toole is Mayor Ed Murray's pick for Seattle's top cop. There's another plan to pay for bus service in Seattle, this one from City Councilmembers Nick Licata and Kshama Sawant. And Macklemore apologizes for his choice of costume at a surprise performance at the EMP.

Steve Scher talks over these stories and more of the week's news with news analyst Joni Balter, The Stranger's Eli Sanders and Jon Talton of the Seattle Times.
