Senate Immigration Bill Moves Forward
University of Washington professor Matt Barreto joins us to discuss the immigration bill that is moving through the Senate. The amended bill cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee with a bipartisan 13-5 vote and now moves to the Senate floor for a vote.

Planning Meals Vs. Takeout
American families throw away a lot of food; about $2,275 worth every year according to a study by the Natural Resource Defense Council. Using shopping lists and planning a week’s worth of meals in advance can cut down on waste, but that requires a new way of thinking. Melissa Lanz joins us with ideas on how to shift our thinking and eating patterns. 

Author Nathaniel Philbrick On "Bunker Hill"
Nathaniel Philbrick’s award-winning books reveal forgotten moments and characters in American history. His latest effort “Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution”  looks at the tension-filled city of Boston in the months leading up to the American Revolution. Philbrick’s portrait of the city reveals deep divisions over the issue of independence from Britain. He recounts the little-known story of Dr. Joseph Warren, a young physician whose passion for independence fueled the Patriot cause and led to Warren’s much-lamented death in the Battle of Bunker Hill. KUOW’s Dave Beck speaks with Nathaniel Philbrick.
