Why you might see a fridge when you walk through your neighborhood

Take a stroll around your neighborhood and you might come across a refrigerator on the street. It's not waiting to be recycled, it's part of the mutual aid group Seattle Community Fridge. Ross Reynolds spoke to one of the group's volunteers. Plus, last Monday Governor Inslee signed a sweeping set of environmental bills into law. But one provision he didn't pass was requiring consent from local tribes, and tribal leaders aren't happy. And Ross Reynolds speaks to Heart band member Nancy Wilson.

Ross Reynolds spoke to Fawn Sharp, president of the National Congress of American Indians, and vice president of the Quinault Indian Nation, about why that consent is so important.
