Getting over bridges and across the country from the comfort of home
Bill Radke talks the week's news with Civic Editor for GeekWire Monica Nickelsburg, Q13 analyst CR Douglas, and the publisher of the Washington State Wire, DJ Wilson.
The West Seattle Bridge is closed, and it won't be reopening any time soon. How did this happen, and what does it mean for the city?
Also, Washington has entered a Western States Pact with California and Oregon, vowing to work together to re-open their economies. But what is the pact actually doing, other than sounding good?
Plus, Washington's economy, like the rest of the country's, isn't doing well right now. Will we be able to bounce back from this shut down, or is this the start of a cataclysmic economic downturn?
But even if the economy did go up in flames, at least we can celebrate that our farmers markets are back! The University District and Ballard farmers markets will both be reopening this weekend. Is this a good idea?
And as the farmers markets open, another has just been put on hold. Amazon has stopped sales in France following an order from their Supreme Court. That's not the only news for Amazon this week. How are they, and their employees, doing during this pandemic?
Finally, nobody's driving right now, which makes it a great time for those who are. Especially if you're trying to complete a cannonball run across the country.
